ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Thais Henry is nine months pregnant and eight weeks waiting on her unemployment insurance payments from the Georgia Department of Labor

Henry is a laid-off IT manager who applied for state benefits in March. Whenever she checks her status, she gets the same answer.

"It tells me what I get, it tells me how much I have in the balance, all of that, but it just says determination is pending," Henry said.

Henry's pregnancy is also pending, and the baby's room isn't ready. It's empty. Henry and her husband already have four children, and baby will make five.

Better Call Harry thought this pregnant woman should get help from the Department of Labor. Harry reached out, and Henry received a call.

Henry learned that her case had been in limbo because GDOL needed a confirmation from the agency that got her the job.

Now the delivery is expected in 48 hours. The delivery of funds, that is.
