If you are a resident of NJ and collecting from NJ, you will be eligible for state mandated extended benefits for another 20 weeks.
Otherwise, you need to exhaust Tier 1 by December 31, 2011 in order to transfer to Tier 2. State benefits need to be exhausted by December 24th in order to transfer to Tier 1.
Other states with mandated EB are Alaska, Connecticut, Kansas, Minnesota, New Jersey
, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington. In order to collect EB, however, both resident state and claiming state must be paying EB. So, for people collecting from any of the above states, but not residing in a state with mandated EB, EB benefits will cease in January 2012.
