ok, so this is slightly delayed, but i just found my letters i got mailed to me and wanted to check here ebfore calling my local esc office. I applied for my 2nd benefit year knowing i would just be eligible for a pull-forward back in july. I received letters on 7/26 and 7/27 stating that my maximum benefit amount would be $3119. a few days later on 8/02 i got another letter stating there was a revision and my maximum benefit amount got reduced to $1964. is this a miscalculation on their behalf, because i assumed that since it was a pull forward it would just provide me with the benefits i had leftover from the tiers i never used in year one and not use any form of calculation (like they do to determine 2nd year eligibility). my initial benefit amount from year one was $4620 and that amount continued in EUC and EB(never went into my second tier just went straight from EUC to EB)

secondly, a few weeks ago i received about $100 less than my usual weekly benefit amount. is this normal or do i need to call and get them to correct this error?

thanks in advance to any input provided.

You'll recieve the rest of your tier 2, and hopefully roll into tier 3 and 4.
However the EUC08 program is set to end Nov 27th, so you would get to finish whatever tier your in at that time unless the senate votes to extend the Euc08 program again... word has it they won't!!?
So, if this happens you should be eligible at that time if you have no disquailfcations to collect state money EB, this will be for 80% of what your original UI was also at the same weekly amount
However many weeks you collected tier 2, will also be your EB.
Goodluck you should be fine
Isn't EB the same as what I'm collecting now?

They did it! They transferred the money from my old claim to my new benefit year claim.

i explained to her that i had received 3 different payment amounts in the last 3 weeks...her reply was:

1. first week had the overpayment deduction
2. 2nd week was the normal amount
3. 3rd week (yesterday) was the balance left on my tier..

i told her that i had gotten the 'benefits exhausted' message today and she informed me that i had been granted another extension and this was just a computer glitch while the transition was happening....

she gave me a dollar amount and said 'not to worry that my benefits were not exhausted and it would straighten itself out'...i hope this is the case...
as of today the 'benefits exhausted' was still on my claim....i called raleigh again and spoke with a differen't person who was rude and condescending and basically said none of what i was told on monday was correct...she was trying to explain to me by reading off of a sheet in a monotone voice...i could tell because otherwise when she spoke she used bad grammar...

so basically all that i really understood is that i need to 'requalify' and since i don't have any wages in a base period (i've been unemployed since 4/2009) i don't qualify...although i worked solidly for all the years before this...she then asked if i had sent in the waiver for the overpayments...to which i said 'i have been told that i had to and that i didn't have to so i sent an email on the 8th'...

her response was 'i don't know nothin' about that'

we have a bang-up crew working in the ESC...i love how the lady i spoke with on monday told me 3 times that i had nothing to worry about.

in other words i guess that equates to...i guess i am screwed...

I don't really know much about EB but I was on Tier 4 and it ran out after 6 weeks . I then called Raleigh and asked for EB benefits , the gentleman told me i didnt have money in yr 2 but that he could pull forward from yr 1 . Well 3 days later I get a letter saying I didn't have enough left and my benefits are exhausted. Is this the way EB works or is it a program that everyone is eligible for?

I am new to this site so please forgive me if my question has been answered before. I am nearing the end of my regular unemployment benefits and am concerned about the Nov 20 cutoff date posted on the NCESC website for extended benefits. My regular benefits will end 2 weeks after Nov 20. Does anyone know if I will be disqualified from receiving any extended benefits since I will be 2 weeks past the cutoff date? My benefit year doesn't end until July '11. Has anyone maybe been through this before? I am getting concerned I will be without any income at all.

I just got a letter saying I was eligible for 6 weeks of Tier 4. However for the 2nd benefit year I was getting $241.00 and now I'm back on my old 1st year benefit rate at $281.00. Does that mean that I should be getting a refund of $40.00 x how many weeks they started paying me $241.00? Has anyone gotten a refund for being underpayed yet?

Docking checks stopped, but when will ESC repay jobless? :: WRAL.com

time it took for ESC to TAKE money from us: 1 business day, before any waivers could even be filed.

time it'll take for ESC to GIVE the money it took: 2 weeks and counting.

i know, we're shocked.
