Thank you to Rep. John Lovick and his legislative assistant Semir Ibrahimovic for their help in straightening out my son’s unemployment insurance claim. Our son had filed for unemployment in December. Eight weeks later, he had received no answer and no payment.
I contacted Rep. Lovick’s office on a Tuesday. By that Friday my son had received his approval and the money he’d been waiting for.
Our elected representatives are there to serve us. If you’re having trouble with the Washington Employment Security Department, or any other state agency, contact your state legislator. I’m glad I did!
