My story.....

I worked at the same job for over three years ( May 2006 till Nov 2009 )

I was laid off on Nov 13th 2009 and filed for for was approved for regular UI at the end of Nov 2009.

My benefit year just expired so I called the ESC and was told that because I did not qualify for another claim (second year) that I could go on and collect the remaining money from my pervious claim.

I was told that I have 8 weeks left of tier 2.

I am trying to find out what happens after tier 2 ends and if there is a tier 3, tier 4 and EB after that.

I have lots of different stuff from lots of different places but I can not get a straight definitive answer as to how much longer I will be able to collect benefits.

According to my calculations ( from what I have read and been told )
I should have 8 weeks left of tier 2 then go into tier 3 which has 13 weeks and then tier 4 which has 6 weeks and the EB which has 20 weeks

so I should expect 47 more weeks of benefits ?

Please someone tell me if I am right or wrong or what.

thank you for any info
The question is if Congress will pass funding the extensions again or not. If not then you finish whatever tier you were in now and then you will begin EB if qualified.

As it stands right now, no extended federal tiers have additional funding and that's what is leading a lot of the news stories right now. Though some reports seem to be talking about the 99ers and extending for them but I think they are confused.

If the Dems give in to tax breaks without having this as part of the package then there's no hope for compromise.

As far as your math goes, if Congress does not fund the extensions again then I'd go with 8 weeks of what you estimate on Tier 2 + 20 weeks EB for a total of 28 weeks.

Thank you GCharlotte,

I was not sure about my tier 3 and tier 4 relying on congress passing the extensions or not.

28 weeks is 7 months so I feel a lot better just knowing that.

47 weeks would be sweet but I will take what I can get and be thankful for it

I agree with GCharlotte!
I was just about ready to post to you at the other thread until I saw you here
You'll be able to finish the tier 2 your in and then go into EB, for 20 weeks.
Now, our state has to be triggered on for EB to collect the full 20 weeks. What this means in a (nutshell) is that our unemployment percentage state wide has to be over 8.6 %
(anyone correct me if my perct's are wrong)
Many states aren't triggered onto the EB program (state funded money)

NC still is, so it looks like your okay for 7 months.
Keep your worksearch records updated on the forms they provide at the esc site, you can upload them and print them out.
They'll call you into yor local office for reviews every 4 weeks, you'll get a letter by mail once you roll into EB .
I've been going through this for awhile now.

If Congress does pull off a vote and an extension passes for the euco8 extension program, you'll have longer to collect with the additional tiers you'll recieve.
For now 7 months is safe bet to count on> Goodluck!

I tried to file my claim today (first time since my benefit year ended) and it said that i would not recieve money this week because I have not satisfied the waiting period yet.

This confuses me because it has been 2 weeks since I have recieved a payment.

Someone please put my mind at ease and tell me this is normal for my situation.

Since you just filed for your 2nd year you have a mandatory waiting period of one week.
(Unless you don't qualify for a new year)
In that case, you'll not have to wait a week and they'll pull forward the remainder of whatever tier you were in when your year ended.
If you advance into the next tier will depend entirely on the senate extending the extension program.
I haven't watched the news yet today, but last I heard was that they may vote to extend it 13 more months.

What tier were you in, when your first benefit year ended?

One thing the OP has yet to mention is WHAT JOBS ARE THEY SEEKING AND APPLYING FOR!!???

Why are we commending someone for seeking to stay affixed to the gubmint teet?

Sounds like the OP has been on unemployment long enough as it is!

Everyone's situation is different.
IE my neighbor works for the same truckline now for 27 years in Rowan County, he's been laid off 4 times in 2 years, so he's on and off UI and works long, hard Hrs. inbetween.
I know many in my county are in the same boat, so I never judge anyone., just try to help out when I can.

That is what worries me, my benefit year ended so i called the ESC and spoke to an agent who told me that I did not qualify for a new benefit year but because I was still on tier 2 of my last claim he would pull it forward.

I do not understand why I have to wait 2 weeks to be paid again since he did pull my old claim tier 2 forward or am I missing something ?

I plan on calling the ESC in the morning but I wanted to find out all I could so I could sleep tonight
