Hello,

Maybe someone knows more than I do about this topic and can help us figure this one out.

My wife is current receiving unemployment in Massachusetts which is eligible for a total of 99weeks. She received regular benefits (26weeks), Tier 1(20weeks), and tier 2(14weeks). Because the deadline passed for payable weeks on 11/27/2010 the state put her into EB, or extended benefits, which is a total of 20weeks. So my question is what is going to happen when congress extends benefits? Will she continue in EB or retroactively start in tier 3?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much all!

Josh

MA will probably switch her back to the tiers. She will finish what remains of her EB when her tier benefits are exhausted.

FYI, MA should have or will soon be triggering off Tier 4. Three-month average unemployment rate needs to be 8.5% and yours is 8.2%. If the rate does not rise above 8.5%, then your wife will get Tier 3 and what remains of EB.

EB also has triggers - first 13 weeks is 6%, remaining 7 weeks (High EB) is 8%. If unemployment rate continues to drop in MA, the remaining 7 weeks is also questionable, although the rate did tick up .1% in Nov.

You've been claiming for 79 weeks. Max benefits paid since you opened your claim would have been 79 weeks, as follows:

26 wks NJ state benefits
20 wks EUC Tier 1
14 wks EUC Tier 2
09 wks EUC Tier 3
10 wks EUC Tier 4

Your claim is exhausted - unless you've extended your claim by working, in which case you need to call NJ.
