Anyone know how to get the additional 7 weeks of extended benefits in the District of Columbia?

I began receiving extended benefits 12/14/09 and the online claim service now says that I have exhausted my benefits--even though it has only been 13 weeks.

I was actually supposed to begin receiving my extended benefits 10/12/09 but DCOE dragged their feet for nine weeks. I had to go to court twice to get them to finally process my claim. In that process I found out just how phenominally inept the DCOE office is--three or four hours on hold just to be told to call back another day because the person who answered the phone didn't feel like doing any work. I would go in person and be told to just tape a note next to an elevator door frame and someone upstairs would eventually notice it! Their website says 'click here to file' and then that link says 'you cannot file here'. None of their website information has been updated in more than a year. So I know I cannot rely upon DCOE to provide any insight or explanation.

Any information anyone has would be very helpful.

and this is the way things work in our Nation's capital? Doesn't bode well for us does it?

Sorry I can't help, hopefully someone will have some ideas for you
