I currently live in TX but am collecting benefits from FL as that was my last place of employment. If I finish out Tier IV (and assuming/hoping that the extensions are passed in Congress), how do I go about applying for EB? I remember reading somewhere that you get EB from the state you currently live in, not the state you're collecting from. Does anyone know if that's true? And can anyone give me any additional info on this? Thank you.

You would apply for EB through FL. The state in which you earned wages is the state which pays your benefits, including EB. In order for FL to pay you EB, however, Texas must be paying EB, as well - both resident and claiming state must be paying EB for an out of state recipient to receive it. This is a rule specific to EB.

Know that when the extension is passed, FL will need to take state legislative action to authorize EB. I do not think this is the case with TX, based language on their website as they imply EB will resume as soon as the extension is in place. So, your resident state not paying probably will not affect you. However, you may need to wait for the FL legislature to authorize EB. Because of this, it did take FL a while to resume paying EB after the July extension was enacted.

I do not think this is the case with TX, based on language on their website which encourages everyone to keep filing for their EUC/EB benefits during this lapse. However, you may need to wait a while for the FL legislature to authorize EB and, then, longer yet for FL to begin payments.
