I was on unemployment which ran out in January. Of course it was my first 26 weeks I think it is. Anyway congress didn't pass the emergency extention so I was basically done when I claimed the last week.

So I'm curious since the extension (if passed) would be reactive to January am I entitled to that?

Also if I am, what do I do to reopen that claim?

Thanks in advance to any who take their time to help.

Staffing agencies are readily available and they will find you a job very quickly. You'll likely even have some choices.

That wasn't the question. Nor have anything to do with the question.

I have. It answers a lot of questions but I didn't see my question. I'll look some more.

That really all depends on your skills and situation. I've been doing contract work through agencies for the past 5 years and in late 2012, it only took me 3 weeks to find a new contract position through another agency. After that ended last summer, it took me 6 months to find my next contract. And it ended up being right back where I had been at the same company with the previous contract. But my contracts are in the $35 to $45 an hour range. If you have the skills and can get by on $15 an hour, then yeah, maybe you can find work fast.

It paid me about $1600 a month after taxes. So it made zero sense to take a min. wage job or anything under about $15 an hour. I had to keep searching for something that could support myself and family. It's easy to just tell people to "get a job", but unless you know their circumstances, you really shouldn't judge.

I see that your location may be Colorado. I know that states vary regarding how much they pay for unemployment, at least they varied a lot in the past. So, if you are looking for a job in Kansas, you might not be able to fall back on 1600 dollars a month from unemployment from the state of Kansas. Good luck!
