Based on what I read here, a copy from the NYS benefits calculater page, I'm guessing that once my current balance ends, currently four more weeks from today, that's it. Oh boy.

UI Benefits Calculator

These estimates are based on timeframes in the current federal legislation, which may change in the future. Keep checking this web site for any updates. For additional information about unemployment benefit extensions, click here.

The calculator below estimates the maximum number of weeks a claimant could potentially receive based on the effective date of the Original Claim (OC)*, AND provided that:
  • they have been claiming full weeks of benefits since the beginning of their claim and
  • there are no breaks in their claim
Total number of weeks of benefits you may be entitled to (not including your unpaid waiting week) :

*OC effective date entered:05/04/2009

*OC effective date March. 23, 2009 - June. 29, 2009

26 weeks of regular UI
20 weeks of EUC-Tier 1
13 weeks of EUC-Tier 2
14 weeks of EUC (13 weeks Tier 3 and 1 week Tier 2)
1-15 weeks of EB (based on OC date)
74-88 weeks total

Yes and no. A little known secret is the more recent you've gone on unemployment, the sooner your "expiration". Not everyone gets 99 weeks (and in NY it's actually 93 at max because since the 3 month avg. UI rate went below 8.5% (I believe it's 8.2 or 8.3) we've lost Tier 4), so in that sense currently that would be the end for you. However, as each "time extension" (as opposed to an extension of max weeks, i.e. a "Tier 5") passes you get more for whatever date you became unemployed (i.e. if after the November expiration they extend the existing tiers so people on them can keep getting UI, you may qualify for more than you do now, i.e. perhaps the full 93 weeks). Someone like Diorgirl can probably explain this better than I but I hope that helped.

Thanks. I better not "plan" for that though. I take it as four more and no more.
