I am beginning to understand all this political jargon, and that is a frightening thought! I finally figured out who qualifies for EB.

Eligibility period pertains to weeks in your benefit year which begin or end in an extended benefit period. Say you are in week 35 of your benefit year and it is an EB period you qualify. If it is an EB period and your benefit year runs out, you qualify.

Eligibility period also means the period in which an individual is eligible for EUC. So, if you are collecting EUC you qualify. If your EUC runs out during an EB period, you qualify.

Here is the tricky part: You are an exhaustee if your benefit year has expired prior to an EB period, and you have no or insufficient wages of which you can establish a new benefit period. As an exhaustee you can still qualify for EB.

FYI, a benefit year is a period of 52 consecutive calendar weeks beginning with the first day of the week in which an individual files an application for benefits.

I hope this makes sense

I understand alittle, if you exhaust UI through 2nd Tier EUB that puts you at about 1 yr.

Please take it from there, thanks for posting.

I suggest that we start a march or stage a sit in at the Governor Office, to let him know how serious we are about his lack of getting this bill signed. None of this makes any sense as to why it take so long to issue out funds that is just sitting there in some account, when there are people going hungry and at the verge of being homeless. I feel everyone in every state has suffered enough just sitting back waiting for our Representatives to do their jobs. We need ACTION now!!!!

They are pulling a bank routine-money will go in an account and draw interest for 6 weeks. Betcha. M. Thurmond has known for weeks that this was a done deal. It's ridiculous...and although this doesn't improve anyones situation-just know you aren't alone. I'm right there with you.

Governor Perdue has not sign the bill for EB benefits yet, but he's in the process to do so. So in the mean time we're suppose to just sit back and let the walls come tumbling down around us. Thurmond and Perdue both will reap what they sow. May 25 is still five weeks away, where will you be at that point? Many of us will be homeless............
