I believe in being optimistic.

Keep in mind that federal law allowing a state to look back 3 years to trigger EB benefits is very new. So far only 11 states have chosen this option, but more states sign up for it every week! If a state does choose this option, state EB benefits are 100% federally funded through the end of 2011.

Use this URL for more information on how EB triggers work:

Office of Unemployment Insurance, Employment & Training Administration (ETA) - U.S. Department of Labor

It's all in the hands of the NC legislature and the governor.

I guess I will have to wait until Monday AM and line up with everyone on the phone and wait to ask...

Please be advised that due to the recent decline in the North Carolina Unemployment Rate, the state no longer meets the Federal and State requirements of the Extended Benefits Program. In accordance with Federal and State law, the Employment Security Commission cannot pay any Extended Benefit claims for weeks later than April 16, 2011.
I don't think applies to you. This mainely applies to all of us that are coming up on the end of ALL of our tiers or who have already used up their teirs. EB is a state extension that was applied after you exhaust your federal extension.

For example the end of my Teir 4 will end April 16th. I had already had an agent set up to file a B! for me after that ended. That way I would continue into EB. Well that will not happen as of yesterday.

Default EUB tiers

I was suppose to run out of tier 4 end of June. What does this mean for me.
Thanks!

you will still get your teir 4 until the end of June. This has nothing to do with EUC ( that is the federal extension) Eb is the state extension after EUC is exhausted.

I understand thanks...I am on EUC not EB. I feel for the people that are barely surviving on what they get. I pray that it gets better for all of us... real soon.

I'm one of those people. I've exhausted all savings and cashed in the little bit of 401 k I had to help with unemployment and part-time jobs. Architectural firms are still laying off. I choose the wrong profession.

Now that unemployment will be gone for me on April 16th,, I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

I was set up for year 2 in Feb. My status says "Regular Active Claim." So this April 16th cut off won't apply to me??

HELP PLEASE - I was laid off in November 2010. I started receiving benefits December 2010. My 26 weeks of unemployment ends the first week in June 2011. If I can not find employment by that time, what is the next step? What then? Can I then apply/ receive STATE Extended benefits?
