since "the system" is only so flexible, thats my theory at the moment.

(wonder how jdljr is doing, poor fella.)
This may be true.
My claim now says regular active instead of the exhausted message. However ,this past summer when I had to be on EB for 8 weeks, they rolled me straight into it from UI during the senate recess.
I never had a break and then had a review after about 1 1/2 weeks.
I actually had 3 reviews in that 8 1/2 weeks (ugh)
I did recieve my EB review letter after 3-4 days.

They wasted no time, that's for sure

hmm,

#1 my pymt history shows a payment processed for 50% less

#2 Didn't try to call, I'm not filing a waiver and had no reason to call
(so far)

#3 Just going by what they told me the other day, is they did exchange my amt due and took it out of my 7 weeks tier 2, 1 xtra week and all 13 weeks of tier 3, I still owed $120.00 (Can't figure that out)and supposedly I'm now in tier 4 with 6 weeks and
(HOPEFULLY 20 weeks EB)

Athough, I'm sure something will come up with our state to prevent me /us from collecting that much EB.....we'll see.
So that's my story as of tonite....tomorrow is a another ? when the mail comes.

i think what some are wondering is why, instead of just moving all the Tiers up and catching up to where you'd be chronologically at this point, why they dont just keep moving them up until you dont have to have 50% taken out.
say i was supposed to pay back $500. and if they move all the Tiers up chronologically, i'm at Week 6 of Tier 3 and expecting $500. instead, they give me $250 this week and $250 next.
why not just TAKE all of my Week 6 of Tier 3 off the board now, and start me on Week 7 of Tier 3 and be caught up and paid up.

did i miss that anyone actually had this happen? i dont recall anyone saying it.

I got a partial payment. As far as raleigh goes I talked to someone, she just said to email the waiver and that I had 17 weeks left. I just waiting for it to show up on their website. Then i'll believe it.

you dont have to call to have anything "swapped".
they are going to take your Year 1 Tiers where you left off and slide them up into where you thought your Year 2 started all on their own.
and when that chronologically catching up maneuver still doesnt cover the "overpayments" they are going to take 50% of each and every week you have left til its paid.

if you see my post just a while ago, i dont see them doing that scenario.

Called the remote service center both times!
Last Thurs morning, got a rude rep , right at 8 am, ( no wait) it hadn't Hit the fan yet!... she told me I was now in tier 4 and they would deduct what I owe($120.00), gave me no explanation, said if she tried to help me add things up, she'd be doing that all day long PERIOD...ugh!
At this time, I still hadn't gotten any letters yet, I was just going on what jdljr had given us a heads up about.

So.... I called back Friday, waited about 20 minutes, got a nice woman, said she could help me (after I pushed the option to go to the OP line) she told me , yes I was now in tier 4, to wait for my letter and that the program that ran put me back into year one, like so many others, I'd now be making my higher weekly rate yadda yadda,
I could file a waiver IF I choose to and to file Sunday and to call monday of nothing shows in my pymt history.
She said I should definately have my start of tier 4... when I asked how I came to be in tier four????> she told me that what they paid me
(in yr 2)was exchanged for what I had left ( in yr one)and that's where I'm at now tier 4... really no explanation as to why I had the $120.00 OP.

She then went on to tell me, I now have 31 weeks of benefits to collect on, which is absolutley hilarious, since my max of tier 4 is 6 weeks and max of EB is 20.... that's not adding up right, so go figure.
My amt due was so small, it didn't matter as much to me to file the waiver and take a risk with ESC and holdups that I do not trust at all!
I need no holdups like everyone else, and since I already thought I'd be minnus this week with all this mess, I was ok, with 50 % at my larger amt year rate anyway.

So as far as what your going through, it's not really too much the same.... I still don't know if they'll take all yours out of what you have left in yr 1 and start you on your rest of your EB?
That's what they should do.
Just let you start with the rest of your EB at full rate and they still may do that..?
It's all screwy to me and no matter what they do at this point, they could still change all of this up next week!
Seems like they can do what they want wth us whenever they wish to! No warning nadda!

yep, this is exactly what they're doing, call or no call.

Can some math wizards help me out? I'm in a dummy year that ends 5/11/2011. I've gotten one letter so far that says I owe for one week. That was Saturday. Today I received NO USPS AT ALL so now I think the Post Office is part of the conspiracy

My claim says Regular Active with no issues but hasn't listed balances for a week.

My payment history shows a 50% coming to me tomorrow.

In November I received an eligibility of 20 weeks that states EUC. I'm still looking for the letters. I believe I was in the middle of Tier 2 when I crossed the 2nd year barrier, lost two weeks, and then got the fake year started.

I'm super confused over the 50% thing. If they pulled forward from previous EUC/EB then I would have thought we'd either have nothing left or the difference would have been covered.

Thanks for everyone sharing. I'll post results of Tuesday's mail once the sedative wears off.
