I'm in Chatham County, she said it says 2 in-person contacts on the work search form, but it didn't on the one I was mailed and have been using. She did give me a work search form stating 2 in person contacts per week. She also said I could go to another Employment Office and just let them know I wasn't ready for my appointment in the Chatham County office....I'm thinking I will have to try another office.

But if you start a 2nd benefit year and qualify for NEW extensions in your 2nd benefit year, then you would be eligible for EB in that 2nd benefit year because you monetarily qualified for EB in that year, as long as you didn't have a disqualification for a separation issue IN that 2nd benefit year.

sorry for being so late to get back to you but I do want to thank you for that good information and from reading other people questions and your response to them sure lets me know that your are very helpful person in here jdljr....sure do hope your blessings continue to flow for yourself and those that are close to you. By the way I have recieved 4 EB payments with the 25 dollar extra with it so I am assuming that it is from the EB and not the 4th tier. But everytime I have filed my claim it has continued to say( your claim has been accepted but cannot be processed for payment due to a previous disqualification) but the following day the money has been posted. Now I have continued to do my weekly search and have been keeping a record as well.

I received benefits from year 2 for 13 weeks, then seemlessly moved back (pulled forward) into tier 2 from my first benefit year and my payment was increased back to the original amount from year 1.
If you qualified for another round of regular UI in year 2, then you WOULD have to serve a new waiting week. If you don't qualify for a new round of regular UI in year 2, and began receiving your transferred unused extension money from your previous year right from the beginning of your year 2, you wouldn't have to serve a new waiting week.

Thanks in advance,

Well, it's true that not all your tiers are built onto your claim at once. So tier 2 is not built onto your claim until you exhaust tier 1, tier 3 is not built onto your claim until you exhaust tier 2, etc. So no one can see anything on your claim beyond whatever tier you're in.

However...if you qualify for tier 1 EUC, you should automatically qualify for tier 2, 3, and 4. There is no different qualification requirements for the different tiers. If you meet the requirements to get into EUC Tier 1, you should qualify for all other EUC tiers and you should transition into the next tier automatically as long as that program remains in effect.

I wouldn't worry about the messages you're receiving, as long as you're getting your money. If it was truly an issue, it would be blocking your payments. It may be an old issue that was adjudicated, but still is causing the system to give that message. Thanks for your kudos!

The preferred method of contact is IN PERSON.

Now, I'd say some phone or email or fax is fine. But the majority should be in person. Keep in mind that the term here is employer contact. From your contact with the employer, you can then apply for any available jobs however the employer wants you to...call, fill out application, email resume, mail application, apply online, etc. But at least you contacted them in person.

My manager has also warned people about not having enough in person contacts.

Is that the same even if I am in my 2nd Transitional year? Thanks for your help JDLJR. You are a God sent!! :-)

I was told the same thing!
Many, Many jobs simply don't accept job app's in person, so lately I've been doing at least 80% online.
Even Walmart and Target only excpet online apps.
Have you gotten anymore eligibilty review notices since rolling into your EUC08?
I haven't and I'm going to work 10 days temp part time at the school where I take classes next week and the week of the 22nd.
I'm hoping they don't mail me another review during my work hrs.(ugh)
I tried emailing and asking if I had any reviews scheduled for August, but after 4 days no reply., I'm assuming the reviews only take place during EB unless being audited ect..... I'm preceding with the job, it's just enrollement and directing students to point A and B, but at least it's a little extra .

Cool, good to have some temp employment. It does put you in contact with others and who will they call next time? You! :-)

No, I have not gotten any notice of another review. I had two - one at beginning of July and other at beginning of August. Still keeping track of jobs applied for, etc.

I understand what jdljr is saying re personal contact - and that there is a difference between personal contact and applying for a job. So I am guessing that if I just walked into two offices randomly in a week and said "I'm looking for a job." and tried to give them my resume, that's an in person contact?? Seems like a waste of gasoline and time - I got more time than budget for gasoline!

I'm also wondering how I can get an in person contact when many of my potential employers are in secured buildings. You cannot get past the first floor "concierges" / security - no possibility of even walking up to a receptionist' desk and making contact.

Another thing is ... right now ... there are so many people looking for jobs that I have not been able to get any "informational interviews" as recommended by job search coaches, because those folks are just not able to take the chance of being inundated by job seekers. I've also found and have been reading that HR Depts. have been tightening up on how their firms recruit candidates.

Anyway, I'd rather spend my time applying for jobs and touching base with recruiters (many of whom are out of town or who DO NOT see candidates unless they have a specific position they are submitting you for) as opposed to using up gasoline for .... what?
