there is also that EB is connected to the unemployment rate. i'm trying to look up what it is in NC now, and what the trigger number is.

Rough day for us all.
I too finally got letters, one being the NCUI-550 for my 2nd year.
My numbers match. Says I owe $1,735.00 exactly what would be left owed after taking my remaining Tier 3 and Tier 4. So I am thinking (hoping) that i will soon get a letter saying i am in EB for 20 weeks, (of which it will take 4.3 weeks at my 1st benefit years amount to pay off. That should be leaving me with 15.7 weeks left to draw on from EB.

Though I could file Sunday, my payment history hasn't changed since last weeks deposite. My status says Exhausted and I have no issues.

No idea what will happen next, but certainly I will be now moving into EB at 50% for might as well say 9 weeks and then begin getting full benefit rate once I am square with them. So if this is right, I will actually have a few weeks longer I can file, if need be. But money wise it isn't going to make much of a difference in the total amount I will get, should I need to use it all.

thanks everyone for sharing.
I do hope the brass didn't come down on JR. I feared that is what had happened when I saw his post. It is a shame and certainly isn't fair to him or us, if that is indeed what happened.
JR, if you are reading, thank you for all the help you have given everyone.
actually if they take the EB weeks away from u, it should pay off the overpayment and have no reason to to deduct anything more from weekly amounts--- of course u need to be able to ACTUALLY GET THRU TO A HUMAN BEING to talk to in order to fix that!

Yes, I thought about that, just not sure how it will all work. I would rather they do that and just leave how ever many full weeks left as just thatm full weeks for less time,,, I think, lol. As hard as it is to find a decent job anymore, I may be better off at more weeks, even if the first 1/2 (or thaereabouts) would be at 50%.

Anyway, I have already put my phone on the charger, getting ready for tomorrow...

i seriously doubt they will even consider that, if i'm reading you correctly.
they are very particular, and they are not going to assume youd reach EB and just take it off the back end so that you can keep getting full weeks of EUC Tiers right now.

no offense to Sharon, but i have my doubts about this part of your conversation with her. this is contrary to what jdljr has told us.

I think it is 9.8 now in NC. Don't know what rate triggers what. I believe if it is over 10% then the full effect is triggered.

i think we're still fine. just found this as you posted.


Unemployment Extension Bill H.R. 4213, now signed to become a law, would extend the filing deadline for unemployment insurance benefits which expired last June 2 to until November 30, 2010 allowing unemployed individuals to file and move into their next tier of unemployment benefits. This is not the Tier 5 that most unemployed Americans are clamoring as it would not create additional weeks of unemployment benefits.
For those eligible unemployed Americans, this law states that 99 weeks would still be the maximum amount of time an unemployed individual could receive unemployment benefits for states with 8.5% and above unemployment rates and 86 weeks would still be the maximum time for those who are located in states with below 8.5% unemployment rates.
Furthermore, the Federal Additional Compensation Program providing an extra of $25 per week of unemployment benefits payments and COBRA would not be extended under this law.
