first that's the worst math i ever saw its less than 11 weeks 54% of 20 weeks. where did you guys get this info? it makes no sense. they gave up everything and will beg the republicans for more room in the debt ceiling and need to cut a lot of social problems along the way. i am scratching my head on what i am reading in this thread. i did not see any news on the internet about this either. i never figured to get much more but i feel bad for people just getting unemployment if this is true.

If (when) the new extension passes, will I be able to move to Tier 4 here in California? I finished my 3rd Tier on December 29th. I'm a bit worried that I won't qualify since the bill will have passed after I technically exhausted all my benefits.

I don't know if that's the percentage or not. It might be inaccurate but there is no doubt the grammar and punctuation in your post is far worse

I dont know about the tiers in other states but this one is for Florida.

Emergency Unemployment Compensation - FloridaJobs.org

Here it is. It is 54% ............so that is right. But its up to 14 weeks. Not 12 weeks. Then you would transition to tier two if the state still offers it. Then tier 3 if they offer it and Florida no longer offers tier 4.

Hope this helps

if my grammar and punctuation was right that would mean i was drunk haha look at last years final tiers that's 54%. i am very confused with everything on this thread not saying its wrong but it makes no sense that they would pick 54% again unless that's a lucky number

September 2, 2012-January 5, 2013:*
Tier 1 - 54% of original benefit amount
Tier 2 - 54% of original benefit amount
Tier 3 - 35% of original benefit amount
Tier 4 - 39% of original benefit amount

House GOP opposition to fiscal cliff bill grows - Jake Sherman and Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com

Latest updates: Will the House vote? – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

Looks like we are in the for the long haul.

While I'm not a republican nor a democrat...come-on guys...really?

You had 500+ days to work this out...nothing that was proposed is worth what is to come.

Asian markets open in what.....4 hours and change?

I wonder is the DOW is going to have to get destroyed in-order for politicians to actually work.

It will. I'd expect the Dow to drop 300 plus Wednesday barring either a deal or an announcement of a House vote.

Yea that sounds about right...

The real question is, how will the world markets react to this.

It's no question as to the fact that the US owes money to everyone.

I'm curious how they(world markets...esp Asian) will act if this bill does not pass... If they can't get over this "bunny" cliff...how are they going to handle the debt limit....if that comes and goes its near certain the us will default on its obligations.

(That being said, its blatantly obvious that the US has the means to pay its bills....even if it his the limit...its just that the Treasury will be legally bound to not pay)

Asian markets open soon..we will see...that could ultimately make them vote...they could be in session until 8 when they open.

Edit: I'd like to state, (I'm not sure on the forum rules so I'll be vague) being a young 20-something.... congress has never been viewed positively by my generation...If we go over this and they drag it out until the debt limit....I wonder what that will do to voter turnout..why should my peers and I vote for a clearly, broken system.

Just a thought.

Wishing the best for everyone as I know that EUC is a lifeline for many.

Cantor’s opposition likely dooms the chances for fast House passage of the legislation without changes, which could prolong efforts to avert the automatic tax increases and spending cuts that technically took effect on Tuesday. If there is no agreement by the end of the current Congress at noon on Thursday, negotiations would have to start over in the next Congress. Many economists believe that the fiscal cliff’s full effect would drive the economy back into recession. ...

You get 54% of whatever your original monetary determination is.

thomasdavie collects from FL. FL does not pay more than 23 weeks, right now less, because of a lower UE rate. Information long available in FAQS, as follows:
Quote:
States currently offering less than 26 weeks – Effective 1/1/2012
Florida – 12-23 weeks, depending on unemployment rate, reduces by one week for every .5% reduction in UE rate, starting at 10.5%. Current 10% rate means 22 weeks, not 23.
Michigan – 20 weeks
Illinois – 25 weeks
Missouri – 20 weeks
South Carolina – 20 weeks

http://www.city-data.com/forum/22370378-post2.html
TD's original monetary determination was the equivalent of 20 weeks. Thus, he gets 54% of the 20 weeks for Tier 1.

So, you STILL haven't read FAQS? This information is in FAQS and has been since February:

Quote:
September 2, 2012-January 5, 2013:*
Tier 1 - 54% of original monetary determination (up to 14 weeks)
Tier 2 - 54% of original monetary determination (up to 14 weeks)
Tier 3 - 35% of original monetary determination (up to 09 weeks)
Tier 4 - 39% of original monetary determination (up to 10 weeks)

The weekly benefit rate remains the same throughout the life of the claim.

Tier benefits are a percentage of the original monetary determination, divided by the weekly benefit amount, to arrive at the actual number of weeks available per tier. A smaller claim may not receive the full 20/14/13/6 (before 9/2) or 14/14/09/10 (after 9/2) weeks, etc.
