Problem with my unemployment claim, but line has been busy for 2 months?

I filed my unemployment claim 3 months ago and got approved to receive benefits. The problem is, after I requested my first payment they told me there was an issue and I needed to call the unemployment office. That office because of the pandemic I haven't been able to reach a person in over 2 months now.

I have called at 7 AM, 8 AM, all day long, hundreds of always says due to overwhelming call volume they can't take my call.

How am I supposed to receive my benefits?

    Contact your STATE congressperson= the people who work in your state capital

    Not your Federal congress person that works in Washington DC.

    Maybe there's an address where you can send a letter. Also look for online contact options. I would even try going to the office to see if they will see people in person.
