Firstly: i am trying my best to find a new job, there are not many openings in my particular field. After filing my last bi-weekly claim i came upon this notice on the PA UC website homepage:

"The Pennsylvania UC Law was recently changed to add additional eligibility requirements for UC benefits. If the effective date of your application for benefits (AB Date) is on or after January 1, 2012, you are required to do all of the following:"

I quote from the PA UC website homepage: [url]http://www.uc.pa.gov[/url] and from the article entitled: "Active Search for Work Requirements for Applications Effective..."

Does this mean that this new law does not effect me because i have already been collecting unemployment for some time now (my AB date is earlier than Jan. 1) or does this new law still effects me?

I also recently reached the end of my first Tier of EUC. After filing my last bi-weekly claim i was informed that my account has reached 0. I assume they will mail me something, and if not then i will call and ask if i am being transferred into Tier 2, or how i should go about doing that. My question is: when transferring Tiers do i receive a new (AB Date) or does my (AB Date) remain unchanged. Does it remain the date that i lost my previous job and started collecting regular UC?

I am asking because i do seek work, but under this new law i would be required to apply to 3 jobs every week. I find at most 1-5 job openings in my particular field a month. Does this mean i will have to apply to more places (outside my field) and accept the work from these (other) applications if interviewed and hired? I am trying to get hired at a job in the same field and at a similar pay rate, with no luck so far.

Does this new law effect me? Are they cracking down on people who are not actively seeking work? Should i be extra sure to keep record of all the places i apply to? Will i get in trouble if i only apply to a few places a month like i have been doing?

I would greatly appreciate any advice. I'm in a pickle and a little worried and stressed out about what this means for me in the coming months.
