My benefits ended in middle of June. It was the 1st 26 weeks. From what I have read I should be able to get on tier 1 or something?

I hate CO benefits phone line, they have no hold system so if all the CSR are busy you get disconnected

You should be eligible for Tier I -- which, under the new legislation, will be retroactive to mid June when you exhausted your regular benefits.

Because the time frames for actually making these retroactive payments can vary from state to state, check your state's DOL website regularly for updates on how quickly they expect to resume payment of benefits.

so basically everyone who has just used his/her first 26 weeks is eligible to go to Tier I, or are there some exceptions? I'm asking this because I received my last check of my first 26 weeks last month, and didn't get a notice that I might be able to get extended benefits..

You don't say what state you are in, but if you exhausted your regular benefits in June, you missed the May 23 eligibility cut-off date for Tier I. The new legislation extends that cut-off date through the end of November 2010 for the EUC Tiers program in all states, so you will now be eligible for Tier I -- retroactive to the date your exhausted your regular benefits.

You should receive notification shortly from your state UI. In the meantime, it's a good idea to check your state's DOL website for updates on how they will be administering the Tiers now that they have been extended.

The law requires that all federal benefits (EUC Tiers) be exhausted before state benefits (regular and EB) are paid. So most states who put people on EB while there is a break in the Tiers move those people onto the Tiers ASAP. Then after they complete the available Tiers, they can collect any EB they have remaining if it is still available at that time.

However, other states -- because of the way their systems are configured -- have the people exhaust EB before moving them to the Tiers.

Check your state DOL website for how they will be handling it. In addition, you should receive written notification from them shortly confirming how they will proceed.

I just exhausted my Tier 4 benefits and still out of work. What happens now? Is there another type of extension because I have not collected 99 weeks of unemployment. I was laid off in April of 09.

You should have one more called EB and depending on your states unemployment rate you will get between 13 and 20 weeks. One cavity though is if the extension for unemployment doesn't get through congress in due time your EB will be cut off until it is extended most likely. There are a few exceptions to the rule but for most you will be cut off. There are posts within this forum with more detail about exactly what happens.
