In New Jersey Am I eligible for benefits from my first claim if I exhausted all my benefits from the 2nd claim?

I had lost my job in Oct 2008 then got a job in May 2010. Then got laid off in August and have exhausted all my benefits of the 2nd claim. Can I "get back" any of my benefits that were entitled to me in the first claim since I started working before they were completely exhausted?

This question was already answered in the other thread you started for it -- and the best advice you got was to contact NJ UI directly about your situation:

As I told you last night, you should be eligible for what little remains of your previous claim - possibly 1-2 weeks of Tier benefits. The 20 weeks EB are in question.

In CA, as in WI, they do not pay EB (a/k/a FED-ED in CA) when there is a new claim subsequent to the first.

Your claim for Emergency Unemployment Compensation extension IS allowed on your regular claim dated 3-15-2009. This is the beginning date of his 2nd claim - also received a separate letter with a claim form for the next 2 weeks #3 on the form is NOT marked with the dreaded "X".
If I am to transalte this correctly, it looks like this is a brand new Tier 1 - this time based on the 2nd claim. So far my husband has received a total of 105 weeks as follows:
03/15/08 claim @ 26 weeks @ $272 per week
03/14/09 claim @ 26 weeks @ $247 per week
1st extension - 20 weeks @ $272 per week (based on 3/08 claim)
2nd extension - 13 + 1 weeks (same as 1st extension)
3rd extension - 13 weeks (same as 2nd extension)
4th extension - (same as 3rd extension)
Fed-Ed did not kick in
- instead a new extension is allowed @ $247 per week, now based on the 03/09 claim.
Note: My husband worked in between the 2 claims for a total of 8 months
Hope this is helpful for anyone else in a somewhat same situation.

Based on WI and CA procedure, it appears, at the very least, questionable whether you will be eligible for 20 weeks of EB from your first claim since you have since opened a second claim and collected 12 weeks on that. And, since you did not work the requisite 20 weeks, you are ineligible for EUC tiers on your new claim.

You need to call NJ.

If it is any consolation, you did work for 3 months, earning almost $15,000, AND collected another 12 weeks' benefits on those earnings. So, financially, you are better off than if you had not worked, as those 20 weeks of EB would not have equaled your earnings and 12 weeks' benefits combined.

Good luck.
