Recording of Friday 3/27/20 Virtual LPJC Meeting
Featuring Opal Berry Executive Coach with Texas Workforce Commission on Applying for Unemployment Benefits
Important bullets from this meeting are:
- Try applying online first before calling your local Workforce Solutions office. Opal recommends trying to do so between 12 am – 6 am as there is less online traffic at that time and you are more likely to get through.
- Important phone numbers are:
> 800-939-6631- Main Benefits Line
> 800-558-8321 – To check claim status or request payment
Extended office hours are 7 am – 6 pm Mon -Fri and 8 am – 5pm Sat. Opal suggests starting to dial 2-3 minutes prior to the opening time to get through as your clock might be slightly different from the clock at Workforce Solutions. If you don’t get through, just keep dialing.
