Louisiana Unemployment Phone Number

Sometimes you just have to talk to a live person to get answers to your questions. In that case, you can call the LA Unemployment Phone Number: Toll Free: 1-866-783-5567

Be prepared for long wait times because lots of people are trying to do the same thing that you are. Be patient and you will get through to someone that can help you. Even though it is frustrating to wait so long, please be courteous to the person you get connected to and you will get a lot more help than if you are terse and rude. The staffers on the other line are over-worked and are doing everything they can to help all of the people that are contacting them.

When you call the LA unemployment phone number, make sure that you have the following information:

1. Social security number.

So is there only one person who answers the phone? I've been calling for 3 days straight averaging 60 calls a day and the only answer I receive (1-1-1-3-5 keypad) is "due to high call volume.... " then hung up on.

This system is a complete failure if after three days I cannot speak to a human. I've read all the forums and NO ONE ever finds resolve. Shame on you, La Works.

I recently had an appeal overturned in my favor and I have yet to receive my benefits. On the very few times that I actually get to talk to an actual person they tell me something different. One person told me last week that they had released my benefits to be paid and I would receive them in 48 to 72 hours. Well 72 hrs came and gone and its still saying that I'm disqualified. I talked to someone this morning and she told me it takes 15 business days when the actual letter says just 15 days. That makes a big difference when you are facing eviction. I filed my weekly certification on Sunday and just happen to check to see if it was processed and it said that I didn't file for this week. This is so aggravating. Does anyone know of a line that I could call and talk to an actual person that can give me a straight answer.

I file my weekly benefits on Sunday and receive my unemployment via direct deposit on Tuesday mornings. I have been doing this about 18 weeks so I'm familiar with the process.The only time I haven't received it on Tuesday is if there was a holiday on Monday. It is Tuesday and I haven't received my deposit, my bank says nothing is pending,.yet the information on HIRE shows the deposit was paid Monday. I called the unemployment office in Baton Rouge and was unable to access a real person, no options were even available to talk to someone. Finally, I found a number where a recording said I'd be speaking to a specialist, then transferred me to voice mail where I was given the option to leave a message that would be returned within THREE DAYS! I did leave a message anyway and even called Louisiana Workforce in Metairie, La., my local office that is affiliated with the unemployment office but not the main branch where all the information about my claim is accessible. They were no help, just told me they didn't have access to my info. I've sent an e-mail via the HIRE website, left more messages and have exhausted every option I can think of. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal but I count on that little bit of money to be there on time and have bills set to be automatically paid from my account, so they'll now bounce. Can you offer any advice as to what could be the problem or any other person to contact? Thank you.
