Been out of the loop with poor cell service still. We made it through with minimal damage. Both now unemployed. We are sticking it out as long as we can though. We chose STT at its best, going to stick through it at its worst

hey Sparty

I am sorry to hear that!!! But glad you survived without much damage.

Maybe go back to VIDOL and check in, if you have not done so.

A friend of mine went back two weeks after he applied and got a check!

So if you are just waiting to hear back from them, go down and check with them in person and you might have better luck that way.

You have to keep going in. We did three times for my fiancé who also lost his job and finally got a check. Well they mailed it out anyway...
