Default Some folks got it better than others I guess

Illinois
I spoke to the unemployment office yesterday. Lady there was as helpful as she could be. She read to me the e-mails that IDES has received so far regarding the EB benefits. The latest one stated that they will take effect with certifying beginning the April 26th. She said that I should be watching the mail as letters are going out to those who are exhausting their EUC benefits with information and form for job search. Said the job search rules are more stringent than when on EUC. She said the instructions will be included on compliance requirements for job search. Hope this helps!

Cool A national site to check out!

946 [SIZE=3]virginiaBlues[/SIZE] 04.24.09 at 9:35 am wading thru all the fog & no map here either! thought I was lost, til I found all of you here. sorry state of disinformation, & lack of seems to be nationwide, I feel for you’all, and several of you are outstanding in your search for truth and light, even for us in other states. I do believe Virginia turned down monies from feds, and wondering if any other virginians out there? I rec’d last check of 26 initial weeks, & applied by mail yesterday for 13 week extension, then is that it?

947 [SIZE=3]john FLORIDA[/SIZE] 04.24.09 at 10:43 am What is happening in Florida? all our benefits ended last week and it does not look like they are going to help us out. i do not understand with the unemployment in this state at 9.7%, how can you not give another extension to help us out. it looks like they are trying to avoid the situation,see if we just go away. the problem is not going away,i can not find work anywhere,what are we going to do now? bill s516 was going to be looked at on April 21st and they did not do anyhting with it,they posponed it.

Georgia Department of Labor Press Room
Has anyone noticed all the press releases stating the various GA counties in which unemployment rates supposedly dropped? Do you think they ever stop to think that the drop in unemployment is more likely because of the number of people whose benefits have ended and not that there are that many people actually finding jobs? See link above. Just as long as they have something positive to report - no matter what the real truth is!

I have some great links for you. The Ben Massell Dental Clinic offers FREE dentistry. The only hitch is that you have to have no insurance and income qualify (or lack of it). The clinic is state of the art...having just opened in October. Here is the website
Ben Massell Dental Clinic - the most advanced dental treatment facility in Georgia I think you will be impressed. Also for those who don't have health insurance, Kaiser has something called Bridge insurance. It was brought to my attention by one of our forum members. It is for low income families in GA. Not a free clinic, but actual insurance that costs as little as 40 bucks a month for a family of 2. If you call Kaiser, ask to speak to a bridge insurance agent. I have decided to go back to school, again thanks to a forum member. I applied and should quality for both a pell grant and the hope grant. These will cover tuition as well as some living expenses. The best part is that I keep my unemployment, and no work searches. Now I have to decide what to do when I grow up!! (I am only 60...good grief)

We're never too old to start a new venture in life! Best of luck to you SMS!

I am pretty sure that the Kaiser Bridge Program requires you to be in college and have no other available insurance program. I'm not sure that all colleges participate in the program, so be sure to ask that question when you register for school.

Thank you!! Actually when researching the Bridge program I found out that they also have one for the uninsured, income eligible. Kaiser subsidizes 95% of the premium. Here is a link with a brief overview:
Welcome to Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit. Also, the bridge program for students is very restrictive as to eligible school participation and course of study.
