That's good to hear...obviously, every case is going to be different. It's been a year for me, and I just haven't had much luck in finding work. And it's not like I can just find a low paying job to squeeze by on...because it might involve putting my son back into some sort of daycare, which isn't cheap AT ALL...and in essence, I may even be worse off than I was watching my son and unemployed.

Regardless, it's the most stress and anxiety I've had in my life. And alot of it is because you don't know when you'll find good work again...and you don't know when your unemployment will be exhausted. I get more psychological anxiety by going online and seeing my benefit year expire tomorrow. I dunno...I guess it's the fear of slipping thru the cracks or someone just calling out of the blue and saying, "Oooo sorrrry, yeah, we can't give you any more benefits, effective like...now." I know it won't happen like that, but I guess I just hate being dependent on someone or something for help.

I have a question my BYE is March 27,2010. I got a letter on 10/05/09 it said Monetary Determination EUC that puts my last file date on 2/28/2010 for the week of 2/22/10-2/27/10. Will I receive anymore benefits after I have exhausted these? That's if I don't have a job by then... I am so confused

What do you do if your benefit year ends? Mine ends at the end of the month.

Also are the phones down? I've tried to call since Thursday and haven't gotten through.. I keep getting this weird message "your call can not be completed at this time....message 6"

Also forgot to put this in. If you have to go in for another year does the amount paid to you change, if so how much? Lastly, I think , is there a better number to call for info or should I head down to my UE office?

Thanks!

and to clarify (so i dont ask again, ha ha) you THINK i should be able to "bring forward" the unused EUC 3 and 4 weeks, after next month when they get all the programs in place?? but NOT the EB $? thanks again, u r a lifesaver!
There is a minimum number of weeks of regular UI, yes. A regular UI claim will set anywhere from a minimum of 13 weeks to a maximum of 26 weeks.

But a benefit year is always 52 weeks.

When you said "minimum # of weeks they set up a new year for" sorta sounds like it encompasses two different things...benefit year and benefit duration. Thus the explanation of both, above.

That's true. However, since not all states will qualify for UP TO 20 weeks, they had to break it down into two tiers. Tier 3 is UP TO 13 weeks for all states, and Tier 4 is UP TO an additional 6 weeks in states where the unemployment rate is 8.5% or above. Then add one additional week of Tier 2 for everyone, I believe.

All this equals UP TO an additional 20 weeks.

I'll wait til tomorrow (when my benefit year officially ends) in order to file my new claim...but I'm certain I won't qualify for a brand new claim (I've only worked in one of the previous 5 quarters, Q408/Q109/Q209/Q309/Q409). Actually, I was laid off in the second week of January 09 and didn't make much, so I assume that shouldn't count.

I've gone through regular UI, Tier I, and am now thru the first 1/3 of Tier II. If I apply online over the weekend...how long on average, does it take to get approved to begin drawing the remaining benefits? I mean, I can afford to not get benefits for maybe two weeks max...but after that? Yikes.

And God forbid I still can't find a job after Tier II exhausts in late February...would I shift to another Tier or would I get shifted to EB? When that happens...do I just keep filing weekly as always? It seems like I'd qualify for EB because I qualified for Tiers I + II and I believe I have a clean (no issues) account.
For a new benefit year where you don't have enough wages to qualify for a new, regular UI claim they'll bring forward any unused extension money from your old benefit year for you to draw out. At that time, you will not have to serve a new waiting period, and no paperwork has to go to your former employer. So as long as you file immediately after your benefit year ends, you should have no gap in benefits.

However, if you did have direct deposit, there is a chance (a relative good chance) that your direct deposit info will not carry over to the new benefit year. You will have to sign up for direct deposit again. Same with having taxes withheld, it likely will not carry over to the new benefit year.

Anyway, if your direct deposit does not carry over then they will issue your payment on a debit card, and you'll have to wait 5-10 business days for the debit card to arrive in the mail after the first payment is generated.

If you already have an ESC debit card then they'll put the payment to that same debit card you've been using all this time. They're good for 3 years.

Just keep filing each week after you start your new benefit year.
