I Live in illinois, I was laid off January 1 2010 and filed for unemployment for a month, I got a new job and was there for 6 months before I was let go. My claim was reopened but my benefit year ends January 2nd 2011, My concern is that I will not be eligible for any extensions because they all seem to end in November/December, however because I worked will they open a new claim based on that income once this one ends, How would this work?

You have probably earned enough to qualify for a new claim year instead of a continuation of the old, so a new claim would be opened in January 2011. If the benefit under this new claim is 25% or $100 lower than the original claim, under HR4213 you should be able to continue with the original claim, assuming Illinois has implemented this change and the EUC program is still in effect.

If Congress does not extend the EUC program beyond November 30th or otherwise changes qualification for EUC, your new claim in 2011 might not qualify for EUC extensions nor will EUC be available to old claims other than those already collecting and then only to the limit of whatever tier/eb they are on, although you could still collect the initial 26 weeks' state benefits. Congress seems to be doing the extensions in 2-3 month increments depending on funding, political opposition, etc.

It's a waiting game, now - for everyone - not just you.

I live in PA. After using the state 26 weeks , Had begun extended benefits and used 6 weeks of. Got full time temp work through end of 2013 my state benefit year ends in November. In January would I go back on extended benefits or have to file a new state claim which would pay squat as was unemployed for most of the new benefit year.
And yes this presumes that feds will have extended benefits in 2014, which is not known yet.

Since your bye is in November 2013, you will need to apply in January for a new State of PA claim, which will be based on your earnings October 2012-September 2013, including the Oct/Nov 2012 earnings in your LAG from the earlier claim. If you don't qualify for a new state claim, then PA can continue EUC from your first claim - legislation permitting.
