The reason I ask is that I went to the esc website, and found the formulas. Here they are: To determine how many weeks you will get on you regular claim you add up all 4 quarters of your base period. Then divide that by the highest quarter. Finally you multiply by 8.66. This gives you the total number of weeks. Of course that can not be more than 26 weeks. To get your weekly amount you take your high quarter and divide by 26. All other tiers are based on your original claim. If you qualify for EUC --I think Tier one is 80%, Tier 2 is 50%, Tier 3 is 50% and Tier 4 is around 25%. I hope this offers insight and doesn't just tell you something you already know. I know that at one time or another Jdjlr has already given these out. I couldn't find them here so I thought you probably couldn't either if you needed them.

thanks for the info. they can't tell why i got overpaid, they just see the balance as negative. i also asked them how they calculated my weekly amount, they said that the system doesn't show any more my quarterly earnings because it was quite a while ago.
i earned at least 20k every quarter, so i should be getting the max of 505 every week. but i only get 450, may be it was max back in 2008 and they that's what they go by i quess in 2010 also.

I would appeal any overpayment. The max as of Nov. 2008 was 494. In 2009 it went up to 505. However, it is my understanding that you are maxed out at what ever the max was at the time you filed your claim. I am sure you have thought of this but did you happen to keep your original determination letter? It has all the numbers.

At that time, yes, you would have to have a "pull forward" to pull forward your unused EUC from your previous benefit year. You would begin wherever you left off with your EUC in your previous benefit year.

It would depend on when in 2009 it was filed. If it was before August, it would stay at \$494. If it was sometime toward the end of August, it would be the \$505. The maximum weekly benefit amount potentially changes each year, at the end of August.

Sounds good to me

Honestly, I can't tell without looking at your claim. Your best bet would be to go to your local office and ask to speak with the most knowledgeable person in the office and see if they can make heads or tails of your claim. Without seeing it for myself, I can't.

It could be that you didn't qualify for regular UI and unused extension money from your previous benefit year should have set up on your new benefit year but didn't. There are still certain issues with claims right now that we don't yet have fixes for. I wouldn't give up until I talked to someone who spent the time to show me each screen from all your benefit years and confirm that you have no balance of funds left from any program in any benefit year. If that's the case, then you may be waiting for the Tier 4 programming to be done.
