Any self-employed receiving PUA payments from TWC? I haven't, and a little (lot) confused

After signing up, and applying, I have gotten a letter saying IF I am approved, I will get PUA minimum 207 + the 600.
And then the next day or so an email stating NOT to call or it will cause further delay.

I waited till late April to signup, waiting for them to update their forms. Listened in on a web seminar with TWC guy stating that it should be automatically "kicked in" to the PUA, with no work search requirement. AND that they would be back-dated to beginning of the PUA date (or last work date, one or the other).

Not sure what is going on, or if it will just come eventually. Any corroborating anecdotes welcome, thanks!

1. Took me 6 weeks to receive anything in Michigan

They felt it necessary to hold up my 40hr a week unemployment while they investigated a part time summer seasonal job of 6 days a year frpm last summer that only paid me a few hundred dollars. Incompetent dysfunctional system

2. It seems to be designed to be opaque and labyrinthine as possible

But aside from guessing intent, it also seems to not provide timely feedback to correct any misunderstanding from the bureaucratic language. This is the first time I have been through this, being a freelancer for a few decades.

And the fact that allowing self-employed and 'gig' workers is so new, it makes it difficult, as one is a square peg trying to fit holes that weren't made for the newer categories.

I will try to be hopeful.

Thanks, for the pov Michman - hope you receive your due asap!
