Since then, they've continued to lay off more and more and more in all surrounding districts. Then, I"ve rec'd the percentages you've cited before (next one 80% of money etc). If it's easier to just summarize HR 4213, that's great too. I've read several things that attempt to summarize the new extension, but they are not clear. Thanks for any information you can give.
No, there are no more tiers or levels of extensions in this new bill. After Tier 4 and EB, that's all there is.

This is not a new EXTENSION. It is simply EXTENDING the expiration date of the EUC program from June 2 to November 27, thus allowing those folks who may not have yet received all of the EUC money they may be eligible for (Tier 1, 2, 3, 4) to qualify for that. Folks that have already gotten all of those tiers and EB will not benefit from this recent legislation.

Default New maximum weekly benefit amount beginning in August

FYI, for new initial claims filed after August 1, 2010, the maximum weekly benefit amount in NC will increase from $505 to $506. This number is evaluated each July and determined by what the average weekly wage in the state is. I'm surprised with the unemployment rate being as high as it's been that the average weekly wage in the state increased slightly during the last year. But apparently it did.

This new higher weekly benefit amount does NOT apply to ANY claims filed prior to August 1, 2010.

At the same time, the amount of wages needed in the base period to be able to file a claim will increase slightly to $4,557 (up from $4,554 or thereabouts).

Default Apparently a new EUC08 "option" beginning with claims filed this week

According to an email I received from my Regional Claims Specialist today, part of the legislation that was just signed last week included a new EUC08 option, at the discretion of each state. Apparently North Carolina has decided the following:

For all new benefit years starting this week (7/25) or hereafter, the computer will automatically run a calculation to determine if the weekly benefit amount on the new benefit year is $100 or 25% less than the old EUC weekly benefit amount in the prior benefit year. IF it is, then the computer will first pay all those leftover EUC Tiers first at that higher weekly benefit amount-THEN it will switch over and start to pay the regular new UI amount.

So apparently if you meet the $100 or 25% less requirement, no longer will you HAVE to automatically start the new benefit year with your lower-paying regular UI. But this is ONLY for new claims begun 7/25/10 or later.

Here is my situation, confusing to me so maybe someone can help with answers. I have a interstate claim NC issuing state, NY where I live now. I exausted my regular benefits and recieved 2 payments of extended benefits last week paid June 26th. Because Ny was not in a EB period at that time they told me to keep filing every week. I did. Friday after the extension was approved I called NCESC the woman told me (after I gave her all my information) that at the present time until the dept of labor gave them guidelines nothings changed and my 2 weeks had been paid but, to keep filing and keep doing my job search. I did. I called this morning to see what changes had been made or if I would be put into Tier 1. The woman took my info and informed I missed an appointment on the 19th that I knew nothing off. She gave me a fax ## and person to send my work search to. I did that immediatlly! Then I called the NY unemployment Office in my county now. They told me I wouldnt of reported to them. Hmm. So now anyways, I have to wait on this unknown person. There is no number to call direcly for interstate claims that I can find. Will I be penalized for not going to unknown appt. and if my appt was for the 19th why would I not be paid for benefits from prior to that the weeks of July 3, 10, 17 before said appointment. As you can see I'.m frustrated with all of this. I do know NY is EB status now. Of course like everyone on here the bills are stacking up and the woman Friday should of told me the staus of my claim. ERG!

I wish I could help, but I rarely deal with interstate claims and EB eligibility review issues. It's likely that for the "missed appointment", a fact finding will have to be sent and ruled upon to get your EB back going again. This can take awhile, unfortunately. If you missed an appointment on the 19th, I would think that you should be eligible for the July 3, 10 and 17 payments but it might still be a little bit of a wait since some states JUST triggered back on. Not entirely sure, there is SO MUCH going on right now with folks in different phases of their claims and waiting for things to happen with their claims. Raleigh is continuing to try and get everyone back going again.

Well, I am one of the people on here with an interstate claim (I currently live in PA). I had kept filing my claims online after I received the initial two weeks of claims since the state I live in wasn't in a EB period. I wrote yesterday asking if or when or what I needed to do to find out if I'd get paid for those back weeks since the new bill was passed. Well, lo and behold I checked my claim online & the 3 weeks I missed are recorded as being processed yesterday the 27th of July. Yay! I was so relieved. The funds ARE NOT in my account yet so I'm hoping it may just take another day to process in there. Does that sound right?

One of the problems I ran into is that there are NO PHONE NUMBER FOR NC INTERSTATE CLAIMS available anywhere on the web or on NESC's website or on any piece of correspondence I've been sent. Any help there anyone? Also, after analyzing my claim online I noticed it says I'm getting paid for EUC & the letter I received a few weeks back said I was eligible for EB & would receive that. Confused? To say the least. So I'm not really sure what the heck I'm getting paid for. What does it all mean? I'm just thankful I'm getting something & I can pay some bills.

I just wanted to post my info. to give hope to anyone with interstate claims going on. But, if anyone has any info. as far as a phone number & how long it would now take to receive the funds once they're noted on my online account...well it would be helpful & relieve some pressure.

My file switched over from EB to EUC last night... I'm assuming I'm starting year 2 tier one. I'm hoping to get a letter soon to let me know.
However I'm glad to just be able to breathe again!
