Greetings Again -- 5 Months Later,

I had to fill out a form to enter State of Pennsylvania EUC Tier 1, twenty weeks ago, which ends at the end of June -- Last file allowed is July 1st, 2012 -- I believe.

Could anyone from experience or expertise please help me anticipate what I face going from Tier 1 to Tier 2 EUC benefits?

And are the job search requirements and the on-line filing system the same for Tier 2?

Thank you...
PA Unemployed Citizen

An application from you is required in PA only when moving from state benefits to EUC benefits, not from tier to tier. Everything stays the same - job search requirements, etc. Just keep claiming as usual, PA should move you to Tier 2 automatically. When you reach your benefit year end - which should be in the next eight weeks or so (assuming you will have collected 46 weeks at the end of Tier 1) - you will need to contact PA about recertifying your claim if you don't hear from them first. I believe the PA website has a FAQS on the EUC program. Check it out.

PA Automatically sends the EUC application to start Tier 1 once you have exhausted the 26 standard weeks of UI.

I submitted my final biweekly claim on a Sunday and the application arrived on Friday. Once I submitted my final biweekly claim for standard UI, a message appeared indicating that the balance on my claim was zero. The application is simple---just 5 or so yes or no questions. I sent my application back immediately on Friday and found I could once again submit a biweekly claim by Wednesday .. in the standard manner. The system allowed me to submit for the week right after my final UI week, so it looks like there won't be any gap in payments --- just a bit of a delay.

I just received a notification from the State of PA unemployment office that my next EUC payment is my last and that the account is now zero. This is related to my Tier I payments. The statement from the state of Pa. says,"...the balance on your claim is zero. Therefore you will not receive any additional benefits on this claim. you may be eligible to apply for a new claim now, if you had wages in another state. If so, please contact your UC Service Center immediately."

I thought I immediately move into Tier II of EUC. MY AB date is August 21, 2011. I have not worked since being layed off on August 22, 2011.

Have I missed somthing in the procedure for Tier II?

Hard to say. PA may have changed its procedure. In order to move between tiers, PA needs to do another monetary determination on new claim eligibility, which is what that letter refers to. Normally, your continued claims trigger that process once you've transitioned to Tier 1.

Better call PA and see what's up. It might be they're trying to weed people out, hoping claimants won't follow up.
