I am currently on Unemployment Tier 2 in the state of Michigan. I called on Tues Feb 16th for my claim. I see online that i have 1 week of Tier2 EUC remaining an my Tier2 Tag end amount. The next time that i call Marvin is on March 2nd does this mean that i miss the Feb 28th cut off date.

Just seems weird because my tag end amount isnt a full weeks pay an i am only collecting for 1 "full week" next time i call. So technically speaking i am collecting for the week of Feb15-Feb20th because your collection dates are for previous weeks. Then i believe my Tag end amount counts as the next week of Feb21-Feb27. So technically my next tier in my eyes would be opened on Feb28.

Just wondering if i am entitled to my Tier3 if next week they don't pass an extension. Any help would be great.

If you have just 1 week remaining, you can call the 23rd to collect that week. You don't have to wait 2 weeks to call for 1 week. You will move to tier 3 after that, because your end week for tier 2 is Feb. 20th, if your numbers are correct....

The requirement is to exhaust a Tier by SAT 2/27. The next Tier would start on SUN 2/28 and would be collected in full. This is not affected by your scheduled date to call MARVIN (3/02) because like you said, "your collection dates are for previous weeks".

I have exhausted my tier 2 EUC benefits and I only have a tier 2 tag amount. When I filed my new claim, it should only that I would receive my tag amount and obviously nothing for for tier 3. Eventhoughni filed an extension application. Does this mean I have exhausted all EUC benefits?

No. You will begin Tier 3 with your next claim. Per FAQS:

11. Why is my last payment so small?

State benefits must be exhausted completely before federal benefits begin. Same applies to Tiers and EB. In most states, one tier must be completely exhausted before beginning payments on the next tier/EB. This often results in an odd payment before full benefit payments resume, especially if you’ve been working and have been receiving partial benefits.
