Quick question.. im on my 2nd year.. just ran out this week. i called and i had funds left over from last yr. the rep told me to file a claim today.. so I did. It was accepted but said I wouldn't be paid.. i don't get it. It's not a new claim. I called and called and called today.. nothing but the usual. I called at 4:25 and held for 10 minutes.. then when someone picked up, they hung up. SO.. will I be paid this week or will i get back paid? i'm so confused.

Without actually seeing your claim, it's hard to say what the status is. I'm not clear on if your benefit year ran out, or if from whatever fund of money you were drawing ran out. I know you tried to call, but it is by talking to someone who can actually see the status of your claim that they'll be able to let you know what's going on. Hope you can get through tomorrow.

...just like if someone living in North Carolina with a California claim came into our office for help...wouldn't be anything we could help them with, it's an interstate claim. What area of NC were you previously living? Call the local office for that area and see if they can help you. All you want is information. They should be able to let you know what's going on with your claim.

Hi Jdljr and all, I just wanted to say I got the job. Which is wonderful, however, the job doesn't start until September. Unfornaturely, I have that "benefits exhausted" thing that sent me into EB from my first benefit year. I had until the end of August on my second tier before my benefit year exhausted on 5/22/10. I didn't find any work during my first year. At the end of these 8 weeks which is now about 6 or 5 weeks left, I will not be eligible for anymore unemployment even if the Senate extends benefits, is this statement correct? If it is, me and my kids are so done. We will never make it to September with not a dime coming in. Thanks again.

First, congratulations on getting the job! I realize the excitement of this is overshadowed by the uncertainty of your benefits until your job starts.

If you've completely used up all of your EUC from your previous benefit year and are now in EB in the 2nd benefit year, when the EB is exhausted I'm afraid that would be the end of your unemployment benefits. Without looking at your claim for myself though, this is just an assumption based on the information you had previously shared.

If you've not already, you might check with DSS for your area to see if there are any other assistance programs you may qualify for (food stamps, for example). Also consider Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc, as they sometimes have funds for various things. Food banks, churches, Angelfood, etc, may also be other resources to consider. I mean, if you're not having to spend your money on FOOD, you can make it stretch just a little further.

Please call either the Remote Service Center or your local office and have someone take a good, thorough look at your claim to really assess where you're at and what additional benefits (if any) may be available to you based on whether you've received all of the EUC you're entitled to. You can't really rely on the online information about your claim, as many times it's not entirely correct. If you still have some EUC left, you should be able to get that after (when/if) the Senate votes to extend the EUC program.

Best of luck.

i was in euc08?? it's the one after the 3rd extension. in the middle of it, that benefit year had ended. I started my new year.. and it only lasted 13 weeks. I'm going to start calling now.. wish me luck.
