this is for NY state, I went to file a claim this morning, and they said I was on Do not claim benefits this week if you failed to search for work for any reason or did not contact at least two employers as instructed in the Extended Benefits Eligibility Rules. To submit your claim, you must check the box below and to the right.If I received in the mail a form titled "Extended Benefits Monthly Work Search Record", I will complete and return this form on the last Sunday of the month. I will show on this form I contacted at least two employers this week. To be eligible for extended benefits, I certify that I have actively searched for suitable work, including any work I am capable of doing. I have not recevied this form,but I click the link above it takes me to the form should I use that form? or call unemployment and tell that i did not get a form.

I am on my second claim, I already received 13 weeks of extended benefits on my first claim.
I have a copy the form from that claim, (the work sheet), now its saying I am eligible on my second claim,, The question is should I call UE and tell them I did not get a letter with the form , or just proceed and use the online form with the link they supply you with , and claim my weekly benefits. I don't want to do anything wrong. thank you

Message says "If" you received that form. You didn't. Use the online form with the link. Many states use online work search forms to cut the paperwork.

The online work search information should eliminate the need to mail in the work search form monthly. It would make no sense for NY to require online and mailed info. NY has not sent you a form for your current claim. Forget that you have a copy of the form from an earlier claim. This form from an older claim no longer applies if you are able to provide work search information online.

Default prior claim extended benefits relate to current claim

My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: New York
Is it true that if I exhausted all Extended Benefits form a claim begun in May 2007, I am ineligible for Extended Benefits for a claim begun in October 2010?

I am writing this on this thread because I can't figure out how to start a new thread. Hope Ariadne22 will answer.

You need to have exhausted federal EUC benefits from the May 2007 claim and begun collecting EUC benefits from the October 2010 claim before October 2011. If you were still collecting 2007 tier benefits after October 2011, your rights to EUC from the later claim have expired. EUC from any claim only remains available if you have begun EUC payments from that claim before its benefit year end (bye).

To clarify and correct, my first claim started in May 2006 and I exhausted all benefits by May 2008 (probably the 99 weeks which included the very last amount - "extended benefits." After the end of new work in 2010, I filed a new claim in October 2010. I have now exhausted all the benefits from this claim except for the 13 possible addition weeks of "extended benefits." One employee told me that if I had used up all the extended benefits from the first claim, I would have none availabe under this claim.

Thanks for your help Ariadne22.

Not correct. That rep is confusing EB with multiple open claims. In the event there is a new claim opened while you have unexhausted benefits from an earlier claim, EB from that earlier claim is lost. However, that scenario is irrelevant to your current situation, because...

You completely exhausted all benefits from the earlier claim.

Therefore, the 2010 claim is standalone in what it pays. Since you exhausted all benefits from the first claim, including EB, you are entitled to a full complement of benefits from the 2010 claim.

Due to lookback, NY state is projected to trigger off EB June 9th. Per BLS, NYS is still paying 20 weeks EB, although that may be reduced to 13 weeks soon. That said, you can collect EB until NY triggers off, possibly June 9th, or you have collected 13/20 weeks, whichever comes first. If the June 9 date is correct, you will collect approximately 11 weeks' EB.

Keep claiming. NY should transition you automatically. If they don't, call them and keep calling until you get a rep who knows what they are doing.
