I live in new jersey, got hurt may 29th 2009, had l5/s1 fusion, reached mmi on july the 9th 2010. so my checks stopped doctor gave restrictions of no lifting 20 lbs, work cant take me back. i filed for unemployment, now there saying im not eleigible because the claim was flied in july and they only go back to april 1st 2009 untill july 2009, i got hurt on may 29th, so thats not enough weeks, even though i started my job june 28th 2008, if i got released in june i would have gotting it because they would have went back to jan 1st 2009 in wich i would had enough weekds. The thing that gets me is the doc was going to release me in june but the nurse case manager forget to send the fce report over so they made me come back in a couple weeks wich put me into july. JUst isnt right, i need help? I even went to social services to apply for wlefare wich i really dont want to do. Ive begged my old boss for work. My rent is due, Im going to loose the car. Does anyone know of anyprograms or grants or anything that can help me just catch up on on moth of bills? please help me.
