I wonder if anyone could help us answer a few questions?
My husband has been out of work for a year today.
Today we got a letter from Unemployment that his benefit year has ended and he has to call a certain number in Nashville to file a new claim.
He was right in the middle of getting Tier 2 benefits and still had a balance on it. When he called the number there was a recording that said something to the effect that Congress has not extended benefits.
He took it to mean "don't bother filing a new claim because it hasn't been passed" --s o he didn't talk to anybody about it.
But I am wondering, does that apply to us since he was in the middle of collecting tier 2?
Should we file a new claim?
Will they deny it since he has not worked, and continue him on the old claim on Tier 2?
Or do we continue to certify on the same day until Congress reconvenes and the senate passes the extension?
If we do have to file a new claim, can we do it online? Or do we actually have to speak to a person
to deny the new claim and get him back on Tier 2 of the old claim?
