Don't Forget To Claim You Weeks

If you are receiving Florida unemployment benefits it is critical that you claim your weeks, meaning that you have to renew your claim or re-certify your claim for your unemployment benefits. This is referred to as claiming your weeks. You can perform this online or over the phone or in person at one of Florida's many one stop unemployment centers. The reason you must claim your weeks repeatedly is that many times people receive temporairy work or may take and then lose a job. By treating your unemployment benefits on a weekly basis it allows you to claim unemployment when you need it but have it waiting for when you do not.

Have You Ever Missed A Toll?

In Minnesota we don't have formal toll roads. We have a couple freeways that have lanes that you can pay to drive on but not entire roads that are considered toll roads. However lately i've been driving alot through states with Toll Roads and have actually blown through toll booths by accident. Lucky I can always find a way to pay my unpaid toll within the grace period. Illinois gives you a 7 day grace period which is fair. I like Illinois as you can pay your unpaid tolls online which is very convenient service. Have you ever missed a toll? Did you go back and somehow pay the toll? Have you ever received a toll violation letter? I'm very curious as to how much the penalty is for missing a toll and then not paying the toll within the grace period.
