You can keep a record of your job searches for your own reference, but any Tier V or additional weeks of federal unemployment benefits for 99ers (or those who have otherwise exhausted all the UI benefits available to them) that may be enacted in the future will not be retroactive.

Retroactive benefits are only paid to people who continue to certify in the UI system. Once you have exhausted all available benefits, the NJ UI system will not allow you to continue to certify.
If additional UI benefits are legislated, the state will review its records at that time and contact those people who may be eligible. Or they will publicize the opportunity to re-register for benefits.
There is nothing more you need to or can do with the UI system when you have exhausted the last of your NJ benefits.
