During this difficult time for our Austin and Central Texas Community, Launch Pad will be here for you, even if it must be virtually for the time being. Our scheduled speakers will make their presentations through a live Zoom interactive video conference.

Launch Pad’s normal Friday meeting will be held virtually until further notice.

10:00am – 11:30am General meeting and presentation
You will need a Zoom account to join the meeting (zoom.us).
Our club Zoom account has a max of 100 attendees so you’ll want to join early. All attendees will be muted, but we encourage you to click the “Chat” icon so you can ask questions.
If you are unable to register for the Zoom meeting because we have reached registration capacity, you may watch the meeting via Facebook Live. Click here and locate the live post on the main Launch Pad Facebook page. Regrettably we are unable to take questions via Facebook Live.
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.
