SO had to apply. The system was so backed up that you’d be kicked out every step and start over. FL btw

My partner applied 2 weeks ago online, it was pretty easy and straightforward. Try to do it at off peak times, the page froze a couple of times so I had to re-enter everything. It was approved and should be getting first unemployment check April 7th. We already received the letter in the mail for it.

And what CTA to end with?
