Hi,

I am located in NYC.

I collect unemployment and I just reach Tier 1, so I just got an offer for 3 months contract on W2 and I am not sure what to do.

Can I accept this job and after that to start claiming for UI again or I should ask this contract to be 1099????

Thank you.

Assuming no new legislation is passed to extend EUC or EB it doesn't matter whether you accept W2 or 1099. If you just started Tier I it sounds unlikely you will be able to move to Tier II before the current legislation expires and since EB is coming to an end in all states, you probably aren't eligible for that either.

and be patient, someone will come along that can give you more answers, eventually!

If the rate is the same on both, go for W2. 3 months isn't enough time to make 1099 worth it.

Indeed, work on W2. Down the road it may establish new claim eligibility which will be valuable now that Congress is cutting benefits. For you, EB is gone. I don't expect EUC to keep to four tiers much longer, either.

I'm facing the same thing here in GA. Got a lowball offer for a job I don't want, and am currently receiving unemployment. If I take it, what happens after the 90 day "probation" period when they decide to get rid of me? I hate having to think this way. All the education down the toilet. Seems its a perpetual unemployment issue in my industry which is never going to change and yet I can't afford to go back to school and get a degree in something else, nor do I want to at 43.

It's complex, and there's just not enough information. How much unemployment in your past, what benefit amount, how many regular claims, what tier EUC are you in and which claim is it against, what is your normal pay rate, what is the pay rate for the current offer, is it 1099 or W-2 work, did you know it was a low offer before you submitted your application/resume?
