Payments are already hitting some people’s accounts as of Friday evening, Fox News is told.

Kansas Unemployment has the people of Kansas furious because it is constantly down and phone lines are overwhelmed even though the stimulus package was signed weeks ago and other states have started sending out the $600 weekly federal money, Kansas has not.
Kansas claims it is because Unemployment has overwhelmed them, even though every single state has the same issues and these other states can process and send the money out.
Unemployment claims in Kansas soared more than 600 percent in one week as the coronavirus has slowed or shut down large swaths of the economy, Kansas Labor Secretary Delía García disclosed Friday. Wichita Eagle News
Bills are not stopping, rent and mortgages are still due all the while Kansas unemployment benefits website is down far more than it is up and the people are left struggling and without the emergency funds they were promised.
Local Fox 4 News reported the following:
TOPEKA, Kan. — A website so outdated and overloaded that even the person in charge is having trouble logging in – that was the discouraging news Monday from the Kansas Unemployment Division.
“We are experiencing extreme technical difficulties at this time,” Kansas Unemployment Director Laura Klein Searles announced on Facebook.
“I’ve been trying every day,” said 58-year-old Frank Donegan, who was laid off March 21. “There’s four phone numbers that people are told to call. I’ve got two phones one for work, one for personal. I sat there and dialed four different numbers back and forth: Busy, busy, busy. You just want to break your phones and start over.”
After weeks of trying, Donegan was able to reach someone Monday who helped him complete an unemployment form that he had already supposedly completed online weeks earlier.
Donegan was promised his first check would arrive within a couple of days, but he’s not holding his breath. Two of his nephews were approved for benefits three weeks ago and still don’t have a check.
This is happening to the people of Kansas and nobody seems to care.
