EUC benefits are prorated based on the original monetary determination of the claim and other factors - see below. OP has a small
claim. Any EUC, if eligible, will be about another 14 weeks - 7 weeks on Tier 2, 3-4 weeks on Tier 3, and 4 weeks on Tier 4.

Just collected 3 months approx 14 weeks and I just received a letter stating the following
Notice of exhausted unemployment benefits
During this historic recession, the federal government has approved an unprecedented amount of unemployment benefits available. According to our recods, you have now collected all of unemployment benefits currently available.
Unemployed workeds who have collected all benefits available to them do not have any further payable weeks to claim.
I also received the same day the claim continued form BUT blank ... All it says
You have received all benefits payable on your claim. You may qualify for extended benefits . If you qualify , the claim will automatically be filled. No action is needed in your part. You will be notified by mail of your eligibility
I notice from earlier posts, you are in CA.
You have exhausted your state benefits on the July claim. CA will now transition you to EUC Tier 1 if your claim qualifies, provided the total base-year earnings used to establish that claim are equal to 40x your weekly benefit, or are 1.5x high quarter earnings used for that claim. If you qualify, you will receive extended benefits, on a prorated basis.
Get out your monetary determination letter for the 2012 claim.
We can determine from that if you will be receiving federal EUC benefits and for how long.
- What is your total monetary determination?
- What is your weekly benefit?
- What does that letter list as earnings by quarter?
Also, if you collected benefits from 2/10-12/11, you have collected all 99 weeks' benefits available under that 2010 claim. There are no benefits left on the earlier 2010 claim.
Also, read FAQS, post 6. For now, all federal benefits end December 29, 2012.
