Hello I am with you. I received a letter about the reduction in employment by the state of TN but I was laid off the first week in June and still haven't received my first unemployment check. It's so frustrating. I have called the number on the letter but keep getting a recording. Try this local Memphis number (901) 365-3205. It is now the end of July and I haven't received an unemployment check. How long did it take to receive your first check?

To answer your question it is true that with the amount of time you are on unemployment there is a reduction at some point. I really need to know how long it took you to receive your first check. I'm in week number seven and still nothing. Good luck to you. I won't even mention how hard it is to find a job.

174.00 to only $60.00 week. I called in for my weekly recerification the voice recorder just stated Benifit yr has ended. I went to local unemployment office and was told they no longer can help me and I had to call the unemployment office in Nashville but I can not get through. I have tried over and over and just get recording they can't take the calls at this time and to try again. Very frustrated and I can't be looking for job if I have to spend all day on phone trying to get through. Please help me! I tried looking on web site for help but can't find what I need their either. Not sure what this would be called as far as Tir 1 ect? Any help I would really appricate.
