Do You or Friends Need Help Getting Unemployment Benefits?
As we all know, the Maryland Department of Labor was not prepared for the current economic crisis. As a result, hundreds of thousands of working people have lost their jobs but not received the benefits they’ve earned. Many have not even had their applications approved yet.
The department is now solving more and more cases, so if you have still not gotten your unemployment insurance, please let us know. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call 301.858.3141. We will contact the right people in the Department of Labor and do everything we can to get your money ASAP.
