I guess that makes sense. Though does it really make a difference if I'm going online and certifying that I was able and available, seeking work, and keeping my records, rather than coming in and signing a sheet? I mean, I know I've missed certifying a week in the past and I would just keep certifying until I got the "You have no more weeks to certify" or whatever.

I'm not complaining...I mean if that's all it's going to entail, I'll gladly do it. It just seems like they're asking over 100K people to come in, maybe next week, to physically sign a sheet. It sounds like it'll be quite a circus, especially in my already insanely busy Raleigh office.

I went with a friend of mine to our local office. He was laid off a couple weeks ago. We couldn't even find a parking spot. And that was before the bill had even passed Senate!
I jokingly told him, 'hey, there is a job creation idea,,, expanding ESC parking lots.

I too hope "James" was correct and it will all be taken care of this week. I haven't drawn a check since June 27. I know for some of you it has been even longer.

I read today that Wisconsin has already sent out 8,000 checks Thursday and another 20,000 will be done over the weekend. They hope to have all 69,000 paid out by the end of the month.

I have been logging in every week, even though I can't file. I will again this Sunday. I don't expect to be able to file then, but you never know. I hope it just picks up on our last filing and lets us file for the back weeks all at once. That would be the easiest way all around, I think.
It does seem odd that some have been able to continue to file while others have not been

Anyway, I hope it's quick and trouble free for us all. We are already going through very difficult times and don't need any further delays.

My dream is to log in on Sunday, and file my weekly certification 4 or 5 times to catch up, then get paid. I know it's not gonna happen...but I'm hopeful.

Hey jdljr,
Once again I request your help. Regarding the above quote:
Does this mean if I drew say 6 weeks of EB while waiting for this extension to pass in order to advance to Tier II in my first benefit year, that those 6 weeks will count against any Tier II benefits I now qualify for thereby leaving EB "untouched"?
Basically, I guess I want to know if EB is always paid last when tiers are/or become available?
Is this true for all states or just NC?
Any further assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!
And, Thanks again for all your time and information!!!

Yes, that is how I understand it to work. EUC should always pay before EB, therefore they would revert any EB payments received back to EUC.

hello, my name is baht. i never really used a forum before, but here goes...

i worked for dell for almost 4 years. i was laid off november 18 2009. my regular ui benefits ran out the week of june 5 2010 and received my letter for eb (extended benefits), right after the week for euc08 ended. on the week of june 6, i received my first eb payment. now my question, along with many of the people who were laid off from dell with me, now that the senate has passed the extension for the euc08, will we be able to receive that as most of our eb will run out in october. we never received any euc08 tiers, just went straight to eb. thank you in advance.

so my benefits were exhausted on june 16 last month, and i went ahead and filed a new claim. luckily i was approved for extended benefits. now my initial benefit year has come to an end on july 17th. I tried to file my claim today only to receive a message stating that my benefit year has ended, even though i still have a good chunk left in my extended benefits account. would a call to the esc office correct this issue or would i have to file for a new claim yet again? I was just under the impression that having been approved for extended benefits i wouldnt need to worry about my benefit year coming to an end.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Adjudication is an ESC process whereby the ECS puts your unemployment checks on hold until they resolve an issue. The issue can be anything, even an honest mistake such as checking "No" on box for " Did you refuse work this week?" During the adjudication process the unemployed person can not get any answers from ESC other than status. You can not contact the adjudicators or pass along key information that could resolve the issue. Be very careful when you fill out your unemployment claim on-line, as one slip can put you into the Adjudication process, putting your unemployment check on hold for a few months.

in response to sbbig, my benefit year also ended on 7/17/10. i had spoken to someone at my local ESC office and was told that you must establish a new claim (just like you did in 2009) for the 2nd benefit year.

Should be able to, yes. Once NC re-implements the EUC program, any EB payments should revert back to appear as EUC payments, and you would continue with EUC.
