EUI benefit claim pended.
I hope someone can answer my question. I was laid off from my job March 29th 2012. I collected the full 26 weeks of New Jersey regular unemployment Compensation. Then I was placed in the Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation program in September 2012. I collected 14 weeks as part of Tier I until December when Tier II kicked for another 14 weeks, which doesn't end until March 31st 2013. On March 25th, I went online to claim the previous two weeks and the website said the benefit year has expired, no unemployment benefits are available at this time. I checked my claim status and I still have a remaining extended benefits balance. However, at the top of the screen it says my claim has been pended. I assume this means it's been held up for some reason. Last week, for the first time I was sent a form to fill out to show jobs that I applied for. I did so, but could this be why my claim is pended? Tried calling NJ dept of labor and it's a 3 hour hold.
