Ok I need CONFIRMATION on the following:

I was laid off in August of 2009. My first set of benefits finished in Feb? I believe and then I started on a new set of benefits. Was this new set my Tier I?

The current benefits I have will end by the end of this month about $3000 left 3 checks in July. So after these last $3000 are gone what happens?

Do I go to EB?

I currently live in NJ.

If you didn't have any breaks in UE benefits - you can use this to calculate what Tier you are on

Initial Benefits 26 weeks
EUC Tier I 20 weeks
EUC Tier II 13 weeks of 14 weeks
EUC Tier III 13 weeks + EUC Tier II 14th week
EUC Tier IV 6 weeks
Then if your state still offer EB (extended benefits) and High EB, you can move onto those when your federal EUC tiers are exhausted
Extended benefits vary from state to state in length, eligibility criteria, and expiration date, so check with your state site

Initial Benefits 26 weeks
EUC Tier I 20 weeks --- So I am here currently


EUC Tier II 13 weeks of 14 weeks -- Don't get the whole 13 of 14 weeks?

EUC Tier III 13 weeks + EUC Tier II 14th week -- So Tier II and III are a total of 28 weeks?

EUC Tier IV 6 weeks -- After this Tier IV am I elgible for EB in NJ? I mean this is a long way from my current tier hoping to find a good job by then.

Okay, you figured out you're on Tier 1, so that's a plus.

Yes, you get the whole 13 original weeks of Tier 2 (if the extensions are passed)

Yes, Tier 2+Tier 3 are a total of 28 weeks

As things stand, yes, you would be eligible for EB in NJ (after you exhaust Tier 1 currently, or after you exhaust all 4 Tiers if they pass extensions to all tiers and they are available at that time)

It's a good idea to keep a record of the date you will exhaust whatever Tier you're on, so you know where you are in the process at any time.

With all due respect, we're just other unemployed people trying to advise you to the best of our knowledge. For answers to your specific situation you really need to either do your own research on your DOL website or CALL your UE office.
