Hi all:

I've been collecting NJ UI since May 2010, had the federal extension automatically kick in during December 2010, and filed a claim today and registered a change of address in California.

The online receipt says I have a $0 Gross Amount. I haven't worked in any other state in my life except New Jersey, so I'm sure I can't file against CA. I've tried calling the NJ hotlines today, but couldn't get passed that pre-recorded "due to the high volume of calls...." message.

Further, the online receipt confirms I have a balance remaining. What should I expect?

Thanks!

as I understand it, you're supposed to be available to work in the state that's paying your unemployment. Since you're not, you probably won't get it anymore.

That is INCORRECT. It is perfectly OK to move to another state and collect from your claiming state. EB would be the only benefit impacted if the new resident state was not paying EB. However, OP should be on EUC and not affected.

NJ might have put your claim on hold due to the address change. Keep trying to contact them until you get through.

Wink So

so in other words if you move from NJ (or any state for that matter) EUC Isn't Effected? NJ Is A Tier-4 State, Currently. Suppose one moved, during A Tier, to a Low-Unemp. rate state, such as Nebraska, where only Tiers 1-2 Are Offered because of their low unemployment rate. Can one still continue to receive All 4 Tiers because their claim is against NJ? Or can they only receive through Tier 2, since That Is All That Is Triggered In That State?
if this sounds confusing, i can rephrase.....

but what if u move from a state (such as NJ) which has 4 Tiers Available, to another that Currently Has Only Tiers 1-2 (60 Weeks Total) Available. Would you still be able to receive Tiers 3-4, if you reside in that state?
