You're right, it's unnecessary, lol. But thanks for the thought!

If you do not qualify for extensions in your new benefit year started in Jan 2010, and you have unused EUC in your previous benefit year, they should pull that forward for you when you exhaust your regular UI.

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.

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.
Are you having taxes withheld? Child support? Have any earnings each week?

If not, then perhaps you've had unused extension money pulled forward from previous benefit years. If you have had unused extension money pulled forward, not only is the balance of the Tiers pulled forward into your new benefit year, but also the OLD weekly benefit amount is pulled forward since those tiers were caluculated using that weekly benefit amount from the previous years.

She wasn't sure if it ran last night. If it DID run but your claim did NOT get pulled forward, someone in your local office needs to be in touch with their regional claims specialist to have that person look into it.
Will you let us know when you find out if it ran last night. My local office doesn't seem to even know about a pull forward. And I checked and was unable to file today. If it ran, I will call the local office and ask to speak to a supervisor. If not I will wait until next Tuesday. Sound reasonable?

Thank you. I think that's exactly what happened. I have had unused extension money pulled forward from the last benefit year. And i think, they also pulled the old weekly amount. I assume it's a procedure. Correct?

Yes, correct. Pull forwards bring forward the Tier balance AND the old weekly benefit amount.

Hello. I haven't been on the forum in a while. But I wanted to know if anyone has begun receiving the Tier IV benefits? If not, what is the current status of what is being done about the process?

Sorry, but (no) nobody has recieved tier 4 yet and word has it that it may possibly be ready on the 17th of March.
I'm assuming nobody would recieve it until the next week when they file.

I'm reading back a few pages and it looks like another member said that today a rep told them that tier 4 will "not" be retro'd.
You may want to go back 5-7 pages and look for "member2009's posts, They went to the esc today and recieved some current tier 4 info.

Concerning tier 4, that March 17th date has been floating around as "THE" date here lately, so it's hopeful but I'm not sure if it's a definate

Anybody know what this latest jobs bill that just passed is about? I heard alot of it is centered on unemployment, I just don't know what it entails. The only thing I did hear is that it'll entend EUC for all of 2010, instead of the old deadline of 4/4. I think. Then I heard whispers of additional tiers...beyond 4.

I dunno...one thing is for certain...I sure hope I'm not unemployed by the time I would hit Tier 4. But come to think of it...that may end up being late summer-fall...which frankly, will be here before you know it.

My main concern is with the pull forward next month...it didn't ease my anxiety when the lady told me she had no idea what a pull forward was. It's one of those feelings like you're going to slip through the cracks.

On another note...our big "award" for jdljr is quite simple...the "regulars", like myself, should contribute to the easier questions posed in this thread whenever we can. Believe me...there are 111 pages in this thread...with alot of repetitive questions that jdljr has had to go over and over and over again. It would drive me insane if I'm answering the questions. If there is an easy question that someone new posts...answer it, maybe even dig up an old jdljr post that answers it (if you can find one quick enough). If they want the "expert" to answer it to confirm...maybe jdljr can just use the thumbs up smiley if we're right on the mark, or quickly add to it. I've seen it happen...I know KC has answered questions to a few issues posed and I've seen jdljr give the thumbs up. It's quicker and it's easier on jdljr. Not to step on his toes or anything...but I just hate to see him answer so many repetitive questions over and over and over.
