Forgive me if this information is in another thread. I tried searching a bit and concluded it would be better to just submit a new thread. I've been working on a 'temporary' basis since November 2010. I work 40+ hours per week and haven't even taken one sick day in these 14 months. I moved to NC from NY in July 2010. I left a full-time job in NY and worked full-time in NY for over 20 years. My current gig has been extended through the end of March and will likely be extended again. I've been going out of my way to be hired on a permanent basis but haven't had any luck in that regard. I realize companies try to save money on benefits by keeping people on as temps. Anyway, naturally I hope to continue working but am just wondering if my assignment does come to an end, how long can I collect unemployment benefits? I had to collect it briefly years ago in NY and back then it was 26 weeks. I know the current economy has changed things and I've recently read about 'extended benefits' and '99-ers'. Can anyone tell me what the deal for 2012 is? Thanks.

Based on current legislation and the fact you are likely working through March 2012 or longer...you would be entitled to state benefits only which are somewhere between 20-26 weeks. Unless legislation is passed extending EUC or EB that is all you would be entitled to.

North Carolina should automatically transition you to Tier 1, assuming they have approved your schooling. KEEP CLAIMING.

Your question has nothing to do with my question. You should start your own thread and only respond to threads if you have something to add to the OP's question.

Myrc60 has told you correctly. Without further extension by Congress, your benefits would be limited to 26 weeks.

The 99 week program is still in effect through February 29, 2012 as follows:

26 weeks State Benefits (some states have reduced this to 23 weeks, or less, and tied the number of state benefit weeks to unemployment rate (FL))
20 weeks EUC Tier 1
14 weeks EUC Tier 2
13 weeks EUC Tier 3 (trigger 6%)
07 weeks EUC Tier 4 (trigger 8.5%)
13 weeks EB (trigger 6%)
07 weeks High EB (trigger 8%)

You will file in NY state. NY is no longer paying Tier 4 because of a reduced unemployment rate.

EB/HUP in its entirety will probably be phased out this year. In its most recent extension, Congress failed to correct the lookback to four years, which means most states will be noncompliant at some point after the end of February.

Further, Congress wants to reduce overall federal benefits to no more than 33 weeks. Which means probably the elimination of Tiers 3 and 4, in addition to EB.

For now, you are wise to plan on state benefits of 26 weeks and probably Tiers 1 and 2 (reduced to 13 weeks) until Congress addresses the program again in February.

Why would I file in NY? If my assignment does end in March, I'll have worked 17 months in NC and have been a resident of NC for 21 months. I thought they go back 18 months for calculation purposes.

what qualifies people for tier 3 and 4 if the state has high unemployment rate?

I know in Mississippi my benefits ran out last week and have not seen a tier 3 active yet, the claim is still open and I can still file weekly cert but get nothing for it.

Sorry, I misread your post. So many references in NY to your post, I 'misspoke.' You would file in NC.

MS is triggered on to Tiers 3 and 4. It may take them a week or so to transition you to Tier 3, if that is your question, as a monetary reevaluation is required whenever you move from one Tier to the next.
