If a state cuts down to 20 weeks, will that only effect those newly on employment? or will they take 6 weeks away from someones EB to compensate for the 26 initial weeks? Also, does anyone know about Indiana? I have been keeping an eye on the Indiana uplink claimant page, and it hasn't mentioned EB ending anytime soon yet

That change has to go into effect before your qualify for regular benefits -- otherwise you will not be affected.

With regular state-funded benefits and the federally funded EUC Tiers, the length of your extension (the number of weeks for which you qualify) are determined when you start that level of benefits -- and your account is credited for for the dollar amount of those weeks. As long as you continue to qualify for unemployment, you can collect the full amount for which you initially qualify. So, if the state reduces the number of regular weeks it offers, or if the funding for the EUC Tiers expires while you are collecting those levels, you can continue to exhaust those levels.

EB is not the same. If your state fails to qualify for all or part of the EB benefits after you begin collecting EB, you will be subject to those changes.

Thank you! I guess no news may be good news in the fact that anytime anything is subject to change, its always on uplink, and nothing has been mentioned. Hopefully since its already passed everything and on the way to the govenor, he'll sign it shortly.

The Chattanoogan is reporting that on March 28, the U.S. Department of Labor informed Tennessee that it triggered-off the EB program as of the week ending March 26.

Those individuals who are currently on EUC Tier IV will continue to transition to EB until April 15. No new EB claims will be established after April 15.

Those who are currently receiving EB payments will continue to receive them until benefits are exhausted or the week ending April 16 -- whichever comes first. No EB payments will be made after the week ending 04/16/2011.

The Indiana Senate has approved the extension of EB, and it is awaiting the signature of Governor Mitch Daniels (R). If the Governor signs the bill by April 15 -- today -- claimants will see no disruption in payments.
