Thank you so much! I kind of figured that was what was going on and I just saw that you had to be on tier 3 when EB triggered off to be eligible for the 10 additional weeks for tier IV which makes no sense to me but it is what it is!

CA is 108% of 3-years UE lookback.......exactly when do they consider a state officially trigger off? The date it drops below 110%? Or does it take a little longer? This stuff is so confusing.....thanks.

BLS should announce this week - probably tomorrow or Wednesday - 5/12 EB end payable periods. BLS usually gives three-week's notice on EB trigger offs.

Keep watching this page for updates.

That means anyone who has qualified for FED-ED benefits and who has sufficient balance on their FED-ED extension could continue to receive those last three weeks of payments, but after May 12, 2012, no benefits will be paid, even if the claimant has a remaining balance on their FED-ED
extension.
Thank you for posting that. I checked CA, FL and NC for announcements earlier today but didn't see this.

Good sleuthing.

No problem. I have some family members that needed the help. I found it so I figured I check to see if it was up here already. Ugh 93,000 people cut in three weeks. Gonna have some big ripple effects.

CA Unemployed, check the EDD Twitter and Facebook pages as the info went up there first before hitting the regular web site.

Erica: See the following article that was in the Charlotte Observer this morning.

Benefits to expire for N.C.'s long-term jobless | CharlotteObserver.com & The Charlotte Observer Newspaper

Unfortunately, I am hoping that the writer got their facts wrong because he is implying that ALL benefits beyond the states 26 weeks will be eliminated!! I am currently on Tier II and was hoping at least to get through the end of the year, but if this is correct I will be cut off next month. We'll have to give up our COBRA because I was using my benefits to pay for that, but if they are cut off there is no way we can afford it because the monthly payment is over 1/2 of my hubby's take home and his company doesn't provide health insurance benefits (too small). Being 60 and having a bad back doesn't bode well for me getting any job in the near future, much less a full time one with benefits.

The article did not say that. What it said was "extended federal benefits" - the "last available program."
Quote:
The roughly 18,000 who are currently receiving benefits from the program are people who have exhausted the 26 weeks of state unemployment benefits and have been receiving extended federal benefits.

“These are long-term folks who are in the last available program to them,” Parker said. Some may have been receiving unemployment benefits for more than 70 weeks.

Eligibility for the extended-benefits program is determined by a formula based in part on a state’s unemployment rate (aka lookback, discussed extensively on this board - unrelated to tier benefits)
Loss of NC EB (the last available program) in May has been predicted since February on this Forum. This not new news, just a confirmation of what we've known since the first of the year. The last available program is not all benefits beyond 26 weeks.

Please see FAQS: http://www.city-data.com/forum/23479399-post5.html

EUC Tier payments continue to the end of the year.
FAQS describes how they change in June (interest rate triggers) and September (Tier 1 reduced, Tier 3 reduced, Tier IV increased).
