My guess is Yes it would kick you into your 2nd year benefits, since you were only able to collect the remaining balance of your 1st year tier due to the fact that you couldn't move on without the new extension bill in affect.
However, jdljr or someone else here may have better insight to this

Hello all - Sorry if I missed the answer to my question in previous posts - I did try to find... it has been determined at my local office that I'm eligible for a 'pull through' of my 1st benefit yr tier 2 benefits, which had been interrupted by 2nd bene yr reg UI benefits of 13 wks. I have 9 wks remaining of 1st yr tier 2 benefits. The pull through was supposed to have been done last Tuesday, July 13. When following up with my local office last Wednesday, I was told that for me and others in the same circumstance, it was not done due to "technical computer issues". Is this normal? Why? When can I expect it to be done, and can I do something to expedite this? As always, thanks for all the help!

Thanks for all the info posted here. I have one question that is specific to my claim. I'm a little confused about my quarters. Here's my info:

Benefit Year Start: 8/16/2009
Benefit Year End: 8/14/2010

I'm on tier 1 of EB with no issues.

Tier 1 should end any time and I guess I'll move on to tier 2 if the bill passes the senate tomorrow. I'm more worried about my year ending and filing a new claim in Aug. I'm trying to figure out if I'll continue with tier 2, 3, etc. or get set up with a new claim. I need to know, based on my benefit start date, what quarter dates they'll use to determine my status and what benefits I'll receive. I worked right up until I filed my initial claim. If I know the dates they'll use for my quarters I can figure up the rest based on my old income before being laid off. So based on my info what quarters will they use?

Thank you.

I think I might have answered my own question. I found the letter that they sent me when I filed my initial claim. My base period was from 4/1/2008 through 3/31/2009. So I assume when I file a new year they'll base it on 4/1/2009 through 3/31/2010? Since I worked until mid-August of 2009, and my quarters were all around 11k each, I should base it on that total? I'd use the amount I made from 4/1/2009 - 8/16/2009?

Please feel free to correct me or add anything I might have missed.

What are you drawing from your 1st year that you didn't qualify for in your 2nd? If you met the 1.5x rule in the 2nd benefit year, you should be drawing either EUC or EB based from the 2nd year.

Technical issues happen. The pull forward occurs once each week, usually on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Hopefully your claim has been prepared for the pull forward, I would visit someone at your local office to ensure this. Make sure that if you're waiting for the pull forward that your claim shows a "monetarily ineligible" on the 0 record for EUC/EB. The system searches for this to determine which claims need pull forwards.

I want to say thank you to jdljr. I have read many of your posts in an effort to try to understand the complexities of unemployment extensions, and the amount of personal time that you spend trying to help people like me is obvious. I hope you know how much you do for so many...whether or not they get on here and tell you. You are very much appreciated.

That's right. However, be aware that they have changed the rules effective with claims filed 5/16/10 and later. Regardless of whether you have enough wages in the base period to set a new, regular UI claim in the 2nd benefit year, that claim will not set unless you have returned to work DURING your previous benefit year (in your case 8/16/09-8/14/10) and earned at least 6x the average weekly wage in NC, or $4,550 spanning at least two quarters during that time. If you did not return to work during that time and earn the required $4,550, then when you attempt your 2nd benefit year, an issue will be set. When they resolve the issue, it will trigger the system to transfer any unused extension money from your first benefit year for you to draw. Essentially by not returning to work (part time work, even, to earn the required minimum amount), during your previous benefit year, you effectively disqualify yourself from being able to collect 13-26 additional weeks of regular UI benefits, and any NEW extensions in that 2nd benefit year for which you may have qualified, even if you have the minimum wages in the base period to set the claim.

jdljr, thank you very much for the info. That is confusing indeed. I was actually called back to my old job a few times to work odd days (all earnings were reported). I need to see if I earned more than $4,550. It would be pretty close. I guess that would determine what happens. Thanks again!
