Does anyone have info. on unemployment extensions in Illinois?

I am one of the many that stopped receiving unemployment benefits earlier this month in Illinois. With the new bill that passed last week I thought that since I wasn't at my 99 weeks yet, I would start receiving benefits once again. I keep calling in to "certify" but no funds have been deposited onto my card as of today. Does anyone have information/updates for those in Illinois? The unemployment office has been of no help in answering this so that is why I am coming here for help.

  • Have you actually spoken to a live person on the phone? I don't understand why they wouldn't have an answer for you.
