Since the subject is of interest to many, here is a partial list of EB payment expiration dates by state.

State - Exp. Date
CA - December 11
CT - None
FL - December 4
IL - December 4
MA - December 25
MI - January 1
NJ - None - payments mandated by state law
NY - December 5
OH - December 4
PA - December 5
TX - December 4
WA - None - per Opyelie post #3
WI - December 12

For those who don't know, it doesn't matter if you are already collecting EB and have a balance remaining after the expiration date, EB payments cease until Congress extends the EUC legislation.

Further good info:

While there is no guarantee that will be the case with another extension, to date Congress has never extended the existing federal unemployment benefits without making them retroactive to the date when they expired.

(2) Continuing certification - When extensions by Congress are generally expected but just delayed, many states will allow those who have exhausted one level of benefits -- and who would normally be eligible for the next level -- to continue to certify. That means you would still file every week or every two weeks (whatever is the standard in your state). You would receive credit for those weeks of unemployment, and when the benefits are extended, you will be paid retroactively for those weeks. If you have not certified in the weeks during the gap in payments, you cannot be paid for those weeks.
So, KEEP CLAIMING.

WA also has no cease date for state EB as long as WA UE rates fall within the guidelines for EB

This is a great thread! Ariadne22 asked me if this thread could be made into a sticky, and I agree that it should be.

HOWEVER - this should not be a "chat" thread. In other words, please do not make any posts to this thread unless you are contributing to the topic or if there is a correction that needs to be made. I'm going to be pretty strict about deleting posts that don't adhere to this rule.

And remember, if you like a post, please rep that person so they'll know. And if you see a post that doesn't belong, please report it so I can remove it; do not engage in argments or debates in the forum.

Thanks to Ariadne22 for this thread!

Just FYI, the National Employment Labor Project (NELP) has created a guide to the expiration of federal unemployment benefits -- including the status of EB -- in all states. That fact sheet is available on their unemployedworkers.org site:
If Congress Fails to Act: FACT SHEET on The Cut-off of Federal Unemployment Benefits | unemployedworkers.org (http://unemployedworkers.org/sites/unemployedworkers/index.php/site/blog_entry/if_congress_fails_to_act_fact_sheet_on_the_cut-off_of_federal_unemploy - broken link)

Thanks, diorgirl, for that info.

Ten states will continue EB without an extension of the EUC legislation. They are Alaska, Connecticut, Kansas, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington.

Here is updated list of state EB expiration dates.

Just found this site. Great information, as usual.
Any hope for a Tier 5?

Inasmuch as there is an erroneous news report in the Star Ledger stating that EB will not be paid in NJ when the EUC legislation expires, I thought it would be helpful to include the following posts in this thread. NJ will be paying EB.

I ask because the current news stories (I read one on the Star-Ledger site) indicates that new filers will be limited to 26 weeks if no extension is passed, but I thought EB was mandated by state law based on the unemployment figures being at a certain number. has the law been changed? The UI website indicated EB is unchanged.

It is absolutely incorrect about NJ EB. I have posted a correction in the comments sections, and have contacted the editors to correct the text.

NJ unemployment benefits WILL NOT be reduced to 26 weeks. In addition to the 26 weeks of regular benefits, NJ will continue to pay up to 20 weeks of EB. When the 100% federal funding for EB expires tomorrow, the funding formula reverts to the traditional 50% federal/50% state.

NJ state law requires that NJ continue to pay EB as long as the state's three-month average unemployment rate triggers those benefits -- regardless of the source of funding. Since NJ's unemployment rate continues to trigger EB, NJ must continue to pay EB, even if it means the state must assume 50% of the cost.

NJ is one of about 10 states who will continue to pay EB after 100% federal funding expires. That means that contrary to the misstatement in this article, NJ will pay up to 46 weeks of benefits -- not 26 weeks of benefits.
Subject to reciprocity:

NJ has a reciprocity rule for EB for non-residents. If you collect EB from NJ but you live in another state, NJ will pay you two weeks of EB. In order to be eligible for the remainder of EB from NJ, your state of residence also has to offer EB.

So residents of states which do not provide EB when the 100% federal funding expires will have their NJ EB stopped, even while NJ continues to pay EB to its residents.
Reciprocity also applies to any of the other states paying EB as well. Your resident state must be paying EB for you to collect EB from your claiming state.
