Currently unemployed in NJ. My Tier III last date is April 28th, unless I get employed of course.

If I understand all the new law correctly, my Tier IV would be six (6) weeks from May 6th to June 9th as long as the Unemployment rate > 8.5%.

1. If Unemployment rate < 8.5% on May 6th then no Tier IV ?
2. If EB expires in NJ before starting Tier IV (May 6th) then Tier IV is 16 weeks ?
3. If EB expires in NJ after starting Tier IV, there is no EB.

Thanks

One correction, if you begin Tier IV on Sunday, May 6th, you will exhaust your sixth week on Saturday, June 16th.

Ok on the New York State Unemployment website, it use to say before that 'EB would be payable atleast till may 13' and that date has been changed now to 'at least june 10'. Even the earlier NELP projection said may 13 before but i guess it is till june 10 now if i am right.

NY's UE rate is .4% higher than a year ago. http://labor.ny.gov/stats/pressreleases/pruistat.shtm

The rate has been climbing the past several months, contrary to the rest of the country. No surprise, then, the EB trigger off for NY will be delayed. Per BLS, yesterday:
Quote:
Mississippi and Nevada experienced the largest over-the-month unemployment rate declines in February (-0.5 and -0.4 percentage
point, respectively). Five other states also had statistically significant rate decreases: Illinois, Indiana, Montana, and North Carolina (-0.3 percentage point each) and Florida (-0.2 point). The only significant rate increase was recorded in New York (+0.2 percentage point). The remaining 42 states and the District of Columbia recorded jobless rates that were not measurably different from those of a month earlier, though some had changes that were at least as large numerically as the significant changes.

I will be in the middle of tier IV benefits in CA when the state is now projected to trigger off of EB (May 12). Will 10 weeks be added to my tier IV benefits or does the additional 10 weeks not apply to people who've already started their tier IV? I think the answer is no additional 10 weeks, but I just wanted to confirm, and wasn't sure if it would differ from state to state. Thanks very much in advance!

Doesn't differ from state to state. These are federal benefits under federal rules. No Tier IV augmentation for anyone collecting Tier IV at the time their state triggers off.

Does CA have the 5/12 date on their website? NELP projection is June 9.

Thanks very much for the confirmation.

I think NELP may have updated their projections? Scroll down to table B.

Thanks for the update. Here's a better link to that chart.

My thought quite a while back was the NELP chart was a bit conservative and that a number of states might trigger off earlier. Everyone should be prepared for that, actually.
