In this case the claimant would have to take proof of 6x earnings into the ESC office so that the issue could be properly adjudicated and allow for the regular UI to set up and pay.

1/1/09 - 12/31/09 is the base period for your new benefit year. You may have had enough wages to qualify for a new benefit year, but without the 6x earnings earned within that first benefit year to go along with it, you don't qualify for that 2nd benefit year.
So, just to clarify, I am eligible only for the EB for 12 weeks?
I just tried to file weekly cert. and it said "can not be processed for payment because of a prior disqualification" Is this because it's waiting for the program in Raleigh to be finished or is it for something else?

Claimants also aren't eligible for EB if they have a prior disqualification, either in this new benefit year or the last...like a quit or fire issue that was adjudicated but you got a partial disqualification.

When/If the Senate passes extension to the EUC program, you should be eligible for any remaining EUC (Tier 1, 2, 3, 4) from your previous benefit year if you haven't already received all of it.

UGH...

I was in the middle of tier 2. So if it passes, I'll finish Tier 2 out and then receive Tiers 3 & 4?

Thanks jdljr for all of your help!

Yes, provided you remain otherwise eligible and the program is still in existence by the time you get to those tiers.

Hey, I got that same message but I didn't have any disqualifications at all in my first benefit year. It's just this benefit year exhausted thing because I couldn't find any work during my first year on unemployment. I'm now wondering if there's a gulch in the system that's giving out this system message.

It really makes no sense to be penalized because you couldn't find any work and finding work is what you've been trying to do with the 2 days a work thing and the log. These are the only required things to do. I mean if I needed to find work just to keep getting unemployment the list of things I should be doing should say, you had better find work in the first year or you will lost benefits even through you have money in a second, third, four tier. If I could find work I wouldn't be on unemployment.

To jdljr . . . I received the same message jmlib did. I have received this message this week AND last week. As I posted earlier, my benefit year eneded 5/23/2010. I have been confused since that Monday morning after talking to someone in Raleigh. (I'm waiting for the program to do the pull forwards). The first time I called, the girl was talking so fast that I could really barely understand what she was telling me. She got my ss#, pulled up my claim and said "I have keyed your claim for a new benefit year" and I knew that I did not qualify for a new year. I started to ask her about this and she interrupted me and told me again what my benefit for the new year would be and how much. Then I called my Asheville office the next day and got a little better explanation. But now (and since the Thursday of that first week) my online shows the new benefit year, no active issues, but at almost half of my original year. Yet when I file my weekly certification, it says "your claim has been accepted but cannot be processed for payment because of a prior disqualification" . I was 5 payments into tier II. I know we are waiting for the pullforwards. (this is the second week with no payment, and I'm now out of money. Got gas and food for the week with what I had left yesterday) This "disqualification" . . . is that because of the pullforwards? That's the only thing I know of. I was not fired or quit. I was laid off because there was NO WORK. Will that "disqualification" affect EB if I don't find employment and get to that point? This makes me nervous. People say things are looking better, but it hasn't reached everywhere yet. How much longer before the pullforwards? Could I not get the EB until those are done? Has someone really messed my claim up? Please help!

I’ve been reading posts for a while on here and most of my questions have been answered by other posters (primarily jdljr thanks ) - right now I am in the same boat as you jmlib I was going into tier 3 and as of last Sunday my profile showed benefits exhausted. I emailed reps at ncesc and they set up a new benefit year but I didn’t fit the 6X rule - but they said I would still qualify for the carryover if the senate votes yes. When I filed today it said it couldn’t accept my cert due to prior year disqualification - just like it told you. I’m not sure what this means because I’ve never had a DQ. I figured id hop on here and let you know that I’m dealing with the same thing - hopefully it all works out this week.

[LEFT]If, as expected, the latest extension of unemployment benefits passes the Senate this week, it may well be the last.
"To continue to extend, in an unprecedented fashion, unemployment benefits - indefinitely, without any kind of decision as to how this would end - I think is a mistake," said Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., an ally of the president.
That is a striking change of tone from just three months ago, when McCaskill denounced Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., for mounting a one-man filibuster against a jobless benefit-extension bill because it added to a deficit. Even fellow Republicans shunned Bunning like a political leper for what was seen as green eyeshade heartlessness.
But in the trade-off between spending and the deficit, the political balance is beginning to tip - especially among those from regions where the unemployment rate has dropped below the national average.
Some Democrats have even raised questions about whether the availability of government benefits has discouraged people from looking for jobs - a classic conservative argument rarely heard in Democratic quarters.
Pelosi said she also had to contend with opposition to extending health insurance subsidies.
