Default Confused from NJ.. PLEASE Help ..

I live in NJ and I'm so confused about the whole unemployment process.

My question is:
Date of Unemployment Claim: 02/26/2012
I get $300 weekly
My balance will dry up in less than 3 weeks (September 1st 2012)

what will happened next?
i understand that Emergency Unemployment Benefits is no longer available in NJ?
so what now? any other sources of extended benefits? how much would i get? and for how long??

I am living a nightmare and so worried


thanks

How do you "understand" this? Are you listening to hearsay which is conflating Extended Benefits with EUC? Per NJ website:

Quote:
Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Benefits to Continue On February 22, 2012, President Obama signed The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (H.R. 3630). This federal legislation extends Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefits through December 2012. Additionally, it incorporates other significant changes and additional requirements to the program.

The legislation does not include any additional weeks of benefits. But, it does extend the current filing deadlines. The new law extends federal benefits through January 2, 2013. All federal extension benefits will cease, no matter where individuals are in the process, with the week ending December 29, 2012. More

Department of Labor and Workforce Development | Unemployment Insurance

Better explanation here:
Department of Labor and Workforce Development | New Developments on Federal Unemployment Extensions

Emergency Unemployment Benefits will be paid to 12/29/2012.

Thank you so much, so what will happen in 3 weeks? can i apply for Emergency Unemployment Benefits until December 2012? how much will get? $300? and how can i apply for Emergency Unemployment Benefits?



Also, According to NJ DOL website: State Extended Benefits (EB) Program Has Ended in New Jersey The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) has informed New Jersey authorities that Extended Unemployment Insurance Benefits, also known as the federal EB program, will no longer be available to long-term unemployed people in New Jersey as of July 7, 2012.

New Jersey no longer qualifies for the federal EB program that provided up to 20 additional weeks of jobless benefits to the long-term unemployed in high-unemployment states. Effective June 16, 2012, the EB program closed in New Jersey.

There was a three week EB "phase-out period" from that date. As a result, an EB claim could be filed up to the Sunday before the established final payment date. This means the last date that EB payments may be made is the week ending on July 7, 2012.

Claimants filing for EB may file their claims through July 1, 2012 if they remain unemployed. However, under federal law, New Jersey cannot pay any EB after the week ending on July 7, 2012. Unfortunately, no additional Federal or State Unemployment Insurance assistance is available at this time through the New Jersey Division of Unemployment Insurance

Why are you quoting that language on Extended Benefits? I just told you EB has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with EUC.

Please read the NJ links and FAQS. All your answers are there.

Extended Benefits (EB) does not equal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC)

You're reading the wrong stuff on NJ's website.

NJ will put you on tier 1 and than tier 2 after that tier 3 and tier 4 are all attached to the unemployment rate but everything ends as 12/29/2012 until the government does the 2013 budget. You can look on the internet there is a lot of information written about it.

You get 6 weeks. If you exhausted your last week of Tier 3 with week ending Saturday, 9/1, even though you filed for that week on 9/3, you are perceived to have received entitlement for Tier 4 as it existed on Sunday, August 26th.

You need to have exhausted Tier 3 with week ending 9/8 in order to be eligible for 10 weeks Tier 4 - essentially receiving entitlement to 10-week Tier 4 in its new form on September 2 - the effective date of 10-week Tier 4.

You get 6 weeks.

Quote:
In order to access Tier 4 for 10 weeks, you must exhaust Tier 3 no earlier than September 8, 2012. If it appears you will be exhausting Tier 3 on 9/1 or earlier, you might still access 10-week Tier 4 if you are willing to suspend claiming the appropriate number of weeks by which you are missing the 9/8 eligibility date.

This strategy was recently discussed, here: Tier 4 in CA
