with the kind of errors made up to this point, anything is possible.

when we get our Wage Transcript and Monetary Determination letter at the start of a new year, they put right on there how many weeks it lasts.
in every subsequent letter, for EUC or EB, they put your total benefits, and your weekly benefits on the letter and then tell us in text that we can find out how many weeks that is by dividing one in the other.
thats fine.
but why cant THEY do it? its just one more annoyance from them. they barely differentiate what level youre in with some sort of LABEL on the letter. and then they cant bother to apply one execution of division on the letters.
and we cant even see where we are when we sign into our claim online.
ridiculous.
if we could, maybe we'd print screen our status, and we would all know exactly where we were every week and be able to refer to it NOW.

well just got back from the local office. they said i didnt get the full 26 weeks at the beginning and that every extension is based on a percentage of that first set of weeks. so every tier for me wasnt the full tier and i went into EB sooner than everybody else. I got 21 weeks and thats what the tiers were like 80% of that. Wow thats great no warning. also according to them, i overdrew on some of my tiers from last yr, i guess thats why it looked like i had 26 weeks.

i hear ya......the last letter i got b4 all this happened put me at having benefits til september and that was b4 that last extension was passed. figuring in the last extension, i put my benefits running out at the end of november. oh well, great way to end the year. if my overpayment isnt waived, thats gonna be the icing on the cake.

N&O:


Officials with the state Employment Security Commission will seek to waive $28 million in overpayments made to about 38,000 unemployed people.
The ESC outlined a plan today that includes asking Gov. Bev Perdue to issue an order to forgive the overpayments with cooperation from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Perdue has spoken with DOL assistant secretary Jane Oates, who has agreed to work with the ESC to waive the overpayments, the ESC announced in a prepared statement.
The administrative errors that led to the overpayments have become a major black eye for the ESC, which recently mailed letters warning jobless people that they had to repay the money.
"I sincerely apologize for the confusion and inconvenience cause to our citizens over this issue," ESC chairwoman Lynn Holmes said in a prepared statement.

Yeah... I don't understand what the WRAL headline means. I'm guessing it means they'll still replace those weeks with EB and EUC...and just "eat" anything anyone actually owes. That'd be my guess...so they'll still recoup alot of that money by replacing weeks.
