I have been unemployed for over 6 weeks and have not received any payments. I have talked to over 6 people on the phone from the Texas Workforce Commission and realized that they aren't there to help you, but to keep you from receiving payments as much as possible. My advice, get the person you are talking to full name and keep a log as they will deny talking to you later. So many of them said it was taken care of, but I later found that they did nothing. No logs means they can deny talking to you. Watch your mailbox for their curve balls to avoid payment. This reminds me of collecting from Medicare/Medicaid when I was a manager.
