No davebj2009, YOU are the one who should scram you little sissy. Sorry, no food stamps for me, but you obviously also have a problem with people who ARE collecting food stamps. Just do everyone a favor and go crawl back under your rock , but don't forget to cry to the moderators again before you do. And please don't get the pretty pink dress that I got for you dirty....

OK, as per below, I've been paid Federal benefits from Nov 14 to last week, 2/9/2010. That's not twenty weeks. Today was told 'no more benefits are due.' Seems like our state, MO, UE associates, really don't understand the number of weeks. Who enters the info into their UE 'system' so checks are paid? What a mess! Can somone please share some insight? Thanks.

The new extensions add a total of UP to 20 weeks. Please review information below. On Friday, November 6, 2009, President Obama signed new federal legislation making further unemployment extension benefits available. The first eligible week for the new extensions is the week starting Sunday, November 8, 2009. Because the new extensions are not retroactive, they do not apply to any weeks of unemployment prior to the enactment date of November 8. The new extensions do add a total of UP to 20 more weeks of benefits available to those who have run out of all available benefits. The new extension benefits include UP to one week added to the second federal extension, a new third federal extension for UP to 13 weeks and a new fourth federal extension for UP to 6 weeks. Thank you for your inquiry

What Tier are you in? Looking at the following you should be able to determine your current tier.

1. State Initial Benefits - up to 26 weeks (if less than 26 weeks, your Tiers will be pro-rated accordingly).
2. Federal EUC Tier I - up to 20 weeks
3. Federal EUC Tier II - up to 14 weeks (the 14th week was a package deal with 13 weeks Tier II, and 6 weeks Tier IV = 20 weeks total).
4. Federal EUC Tier III - up to 13 weeks
5. Federal EUC Tier IV - up to 6 weeks

MISSOURI State Extended Benefits (EB): With the passage of the Worker Assistance Act, which provides for additional EUC08 benefits, no new state EB claims can be filed with an effective date of November 29, 2009 or later.

So in about 8 weeks from today, the 1st wave of people will reach their 99 week maximum of unemployment (completing all extensions available). Is there any statistic available that would estimate how many people we are talking about? I mean, is it in the hundreds of thousands or much less? Im trying to put it into perspective when comparing it to the the amount of people last time when there were no more extensions and all that activity was happening in congress to add more weeks.

The amount of people on this first wave may determine how quickly the government reacts (if they even react at all).

Almost, if not more than a million. Cross your fingers...

We will be totally exhausted. Many will lose their homes. many will starve. Many will not be able to feed their kids. The government, at this point, doesnt seem to be addressing what will happen to those who are going to be totally finished. I know a line must get drawn but are they going to let all of these people go hungry in 8 weeks? I believe I read somewhere that ultimately, welfare would actually cost more federal money than it does to keep the unemployment going. Not to mention that if people don't have any money, they wont be spending money and the local businesses will suffer too. The Government seriously has to weigh out what is more expensive. Keep people on unemployment or deal with the further damage that happens to the economy when nobody has anything to spend.

Extending the deadlines is very very important and I know that however, the people who will finish tier 4 ( again, the 1st wave is 8 weeks away) are in serious trouble. The 1st wave will be the 1st week of April.

If anybody gets an important info regarding any talks of extending the weeks of tier 4 or adding a tier 5, please let us all know. The job market is still terrible out there and many Americans need another lifeline for the essentials.
I've been wondering that myself. My max is 60 weeks, which is the end of March. If UI isn't extended, I'll apply for Welfare, medical help and Food Stamps. I know I can get the food, but I'm not sure about the welfare and medicalI think that would ultimately cost more than the UI/COBRA.

I'd be for this. My Grandfather had work through the WPA for a while. I'm sure there'd be some way I could help with public work projects.
