Question EUC Cut off in the middle of the tier?

My unemployment began on 5/23/2011, my BYE Date was 5/27/2012, I'm in NYS. I was directed to go down to the unemployment office 3 weeks ago to prove that I was applying for jobs (and so that there wouldn't be an interruption of EUC benefits), and they told me I was going about my job search properly and that I should continue to claim as normal.

I was on Tier 2 of EUC, and had collected 3 payments. I logged in on Sunday to certify the claim for last week (and that was recorded by the system: "You last certified for benefits for the week ending 06/03/2012").

But, I did not receive payment this week, and the system does not show that the payment was recorded under payment history, nor was it released. Since my BYE occurred in the middle of the tier, do I have to file a new claim?? If I do, and since I still have a remaning balance of $2,835.00 will the new claim be automatic?

I'm scared because I thought I still had 10 payments before this tier ran out...

Thank you, I appreciate your responses!

You went to the NY office for an employment review, but did not recertify your claim.

You need to contact NY ASAP and recertify your claim. This is standard procedure at the end of a benefit year. NY will not pay you until they hear from you.

Thanks for the response! Is the recertification automatic? I.e. is there a wait period after I call them? I don't want to lose last weeks payment.

(I'm not happy they didn't mention this at the unemployment office )

You will get last week's payment whenever NY completes its monetary determination. I'm guessing you may have to wait until next week. Call NY tomorrow.

Whoever reviewed your job searches was not concerned about your expiring claim. That person might actually have been clueless on what was needed at the bye. Two separate procedures.

Huh. I did ask about the tier and all they told me was to keep on claiming as normal. I will call tomorrow and report back as to what occurred (hopefully someone else can learn from my experience).

Thank you again for your response and encyclopedic knowledge.

It's not the tier that is the issue; it's the BYE (benefit year end). Make sure you use the right words when you make contact.

When I spoke to them, they automatically told me that the BYE had ended, and since I claim the payment for this week, they were going to backdate it and release it asap. They also told me to continue to claim benefits as normal.

How long should it take for the recertification to go through and that the back-payment to be released?

If they said they'd release it ASAP it should be within a day or 2...that was always how it was for us.

Ah ok. I'll check the system tomorrow. When they re-certified you, did the 'certify benefits' button appear again after you logged in? It hasn't shown up yet...

We usually had to wait a day to certify the week and then a day for the payment. Hope it works the same for you. I understand your stress and anxiety all too well!
