Hi,

My regular first 26 weeks of NJ UI has just be exhausted and the web site said a claim would be made for me and I would be notified by mail.

Will there be a gap between my regular unemployment and the next level? Does anyone know what I am supposed to be doing (if anything), or when/if I am supposed to make my next claim?

Thanks!

go to the nj department of labor website. It outlines all of the possible extensions available ( if you qualify for them that is ).

Don't try to file for a new claim. It will mess things up for you. that is not what you are suppose to do unless you have worked since filing the origional claim and it was enough time to qualify for a totally new claim. if you havent worked at all during your 26 week period...read on:

what is available out there are unemployment extensions. ( continuation of the current claim you just finished).

if you qualified for an extension, you should have received paperwork in the mail about it outlining the process. Sometimes things do get lost in the mail so don't panic just quite yet.

If you just finished your 26 weeks, wait a few more weekdays. if you dont see anything come in the mail, then you will need to either call unemployment up or.. stop by a unemployment center local to you and ask them if you qualify. if you do, then you will go on tier 1 extension for 20 weeks. Those will be your only 2 choices. This website provides some advice but ultimately, you are gonna need to get in touch with unemployment about your particular claim. Each person has unique situations sometimes. If you don't get anything in the mail within a few days, check with unemployment. they will be able to tell you right away if you are entitled to the extensions.

I hope this helps.

@Captain - Funny... but not ultimately helpful... but tax free!

@Mike - Great advice, thank you. If you have seen my other post about moving out of NJ during UI, do you have any info or advice there?

the "moving out of state" thing seems to be a little tricky for some folks. i have read numerous posts all with mixed results/outcomes. I don't know much about that topic unfortunately but perhaps other readers will know more and add their input. I did read 1 thing several times. Someting about when you change residency to another state, they will only give you 2 weeks of coverage. almost like a "settling-in" period but again, im not totally sure.

The three levels of extensions -- that may or may not kick in after your initial 26 weeks of benefits -- are explained on the NJ Labor and Workforce Development site:
Department of Labor and Workforce Development | Unemployment Insurance Extension Programs (http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/ui/content/UIExtendedBenefitProgram.html - broken link)

That you guys for your help...

My lease is up July 31 and I'll probably move in with the folks in MD. I had moved from NYC to Hoboken last July and was laid off in October which caused some lag and delay with NJ UI. From what I hear, after you are in the system it runs more smoothly... so hopefully that will be the case.

As for now... I guess I need to wait and see if I get something in the mail from them in the next week of so after the Tier I kicking in? If that comes without and trouble then I will have some hope for the move home...
