I'm running into a strange situation with my unemployment compensation and thought I'd see if anyone else has gone through this as well.
My Tier I expired the last week in June. After the extension was approved, I'd assumed I'd be going into Tier II. Last week the VEC deposited a payment into my bank account. At that point I was thinking that the ball has started rolling.
At the end of July, I get a letter stating that my benefit year ending date is 7/31/10. The letter stated that I needed to file again for the new benefit year. OK, I go through that process again.
This is where it gets really confusing. I had one letter stating that my benefit is amount is XXXX, letter arrived 2 weeks ago. This week I get a letter stating that my benefit amount is different. The 2nd letter is showing my benefit ending date as 7/30/2011. I'm starting to wonder what is up with this.
This morning I called the automated line to check on the status of my claim, the message is telling me that this weeks claim cannot be processed because of an outstanding issue. What the heck is going on?
Another side note, when I was filling out the claims for the first time since the end of June, I was presented with about 5-6 weeks worth of information to fill out. When filling out the claim form online one of the questions would ask how many job contacts I made, and then had fields in the form so that I could enter my job contact information. This time around, those fields were not there. Are they not requiring me to provide job contact information on Tier II?
This is getting confusing...guess I need to call VEC to find out what is going on.
