Noob to forum....
(long time lurker).
September was my 1 year Anniversary on Unemployment, and am in Tier 2 of EB.
I hail from MI, and when I tried to certify my hours online on Monday, I got a message that I had "exhausted my benefits" and would need to open a claim even though I was receiving Tier 2 benefits.
Well, today I received a call from a lady from my local Unemployment Claims office & she said she was calling to get my claim recertified as I was at my 1 year mark. I checked the number she was calling from and it was a outbound number only from the local UI office so it was legit.
She went over the past few jobs she had on record I had temped at, and my last employer that I had worked at (dates, etc & reason for separation).
Then, she said that I didn't qualify for a new claim and to expect a Monetary Decision Letter / Denial w/in 3-5 days. Gave me a Confirmation Number, and told me that I would just continue on my Tier 2 benefits as I have been.
Has any one received a call like this? Or, did they just do the extra step I would have done when calling them to file a new claim (and, now I don't have to sit on forever hold)?
Also, since I am just going to continue on with the Tier 2 Benefits..does the Decision letter go to my former employer (that laid me off) or any of the temp agencies I had worked a few temp jobs with? Just curious.
