The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development says it has either paid or denied 92% of the unemployment claims it has received so far.

The state agency claims it is making progress on catching up after some people say they had to wait months for a determination. D-W-D says about 590,000 of the more than 7,000,000 claims are still being evaluated. An audit in September found more than 90% of the phone calls to the state unemployment office went unanswered between March 15th and June 30th.
