Pennsylvania’s long-awaited overhaul of its unemployment claims filing system is now live. Some users immediately complained about glitches Tuesday, while the state agency that runs the program reported a phone outage that temporarily prevented it from making or receiving calls. Officials promised the replacement computer system would be easy to use and both simplify and speed up the process of filing a claim.
