Default no EB available in NJ?

Okay nothing has changed on NJDOL website that says EB is no longer offered due to the sunset dates for the 100% EUC and EB funding. However a member on another forum is reporting that a NJ Unemployment Rep has told him/her that obviously all tiers are expired and EB as well? Sounds like bad info to me? Can anyone else elaborate on this?

I have seen here posted several times that NJ EB does not require the passage of 4213 so it should still be there.

yeah, njdol's website says:

Currently, there is no expiration date for EB benefits. If an individual exhausts EUC benefits after May 29, 2010, they may be eligible for EB benefits.

Some of these reps need to be let go and the job given to someone who can actually follow what is going on.

Just my .02

Looks like the majority of the states have "ended" their EB either the week of June 5th or June 12th....I wonder if NJ will be following suit shortly??? I hope not!!!

This is from NELP:
"If your state permanently participates in the EB program, and you are currently receiving EBs, you will also continue to receive those. The states with a permanent EB trigger are: AK, CT, KS, MN, NH, NJ, NM, NC, OR, RI, VT and WA." In other words, EB in NJ has NOT expired!

Shutz is confused, Its permanent in many states and for the rest the passage of bill 4213 will extend it out for them as well.

The report you mention from another site is incorrect.

If you read the full description of EB on the NJ DOL website, it says:

"Extended Benefits (EB) is an unemployment insurance extension program that is 50% funded by New Jersey and 50% funded by the federal government." and

"Effective February 2009, as part of the stimulus bill, the federal government is funding 100% of EB benefits. This expires June 2, 2010."

This means that when the 100% federal funding expires, the funding reverts to 50% state/50% federal.
Department of Labor and Workforce Development | Unemployment Benefit Extensions

The expiration of 100% federal funding of EB has no effect on the availability of EB in New Jersey. The only triggers for EB in New Jersey are the three-month average unemployment rates: 6% unemployment triggers EB, and 8% triggers high EB (for a total of 20 weeks). As long as the triggers are met, New Jersey state law requires that EB be paid.

To make the availability of EB in NJ dependent on 100% federal funding, the State Legislature must change the state law. NJ Governor Chris Christie has proposed this, but at this time he has insufficient support in the Legislature to enact such a change.

What is the EB status in Indiana? I was under the impression it would continue but after reading the website im confused?

My original claim expired on 6/5/2010. I received a notice to claimant of EUC eligibility with an EUC date of claim for 6/6/2010. The notice goes on to say that to certify for the EUC benefits, that I must file on 6/23/2010. I dont know why I received this notice since I thought that the date to qualify for the EUC tiers had expired at the end of May and my original claim wasnt exhausted until 6/5/2010. I thought I would begin to collect EB. I dont know when and if bill HR 4213 will ever be passed to extend the cut off dates for EUC. What do I do in the meantime? When will I begin to collect EB as HR 4213 is in limbo? By the way I'm in NJ. Thanks!
