Unfortunately, current federal law requires that once a state triggers off EB, that state cannot trigger those benefits back on until 13 weeks later. So unless there is a change in legislation, there's nothing that can be done until that 13-week period passes.

If your state does trigger EB back on, you will be able to collect benefits then, provided you are unemployed at that time. But the benefits won't be retroactive, so you cannot collect for the weeks you were unemployed while EB was triggered off.

Well, gee. It looks like you partly answered my question in this thread. Why drive me crazy with links I already read on my own prior to posting my thread? LOL

So thats means that be cause the legislation has not changed and we just received our last check. Nothing can be done for 13 weeks? Also does a state normally trigger back on once they have triggered off?

Correct.

A state will trigger back on only if they have again met the EB criteria by the time the mandatory 13-week waiting period expires.

States triggering off EB at this time because they did not meet the 110% two-year "lookback" criterion -- and chose not to extend the qualifying period to three years -- are unlikely to meet the two-year criterion only 13 more weeks down the road. And I am uncertain whether the current legislation will give them another chance to invoke the three-year "lookback" option at that time.

Default Update on nj

Spoke to Maddens office 11:15 AM

To reiterate March Unemployment is up to 9.3% in NJ.

March 14th bill was passed on both ends.

Gov Christie has until June 15th. (that's the 45 days)

I was told that if in fact you have run out of unemployment benefits. If he signs the bill you will be entitled to refile a new claim and collect

The second source with whom you spoke in State Senator Madden's office today appears to be misinformed -- or is confusing the EB bill with another.

(1) The specific bill in question is S2680, which revises the trigger for EB unemployment benefits. The bill was passed by the New Jersey State Legislature on March 14; the Governor's 45-day window starts on March 15, and ends on April 28 -- as you were correctly informed by the original source in Madden's office about whom you posted on April 12 (see first post reprinted above).

A 45-day window ending on June 15 would not have yet begun.

(2) There are no provisions in the bill that would allow anyone who has exhausted their unemployment benefits to refile a new claim and collect. The bill simply extends the availability of EB in the state -- it does not change individuals' eligibility for "new" claims or more benefits.

The bill allows those who have exhausted their regular benefits and their Tier benefits to collect EB. It also allows those who are already collecting EB -- and whose benefits may be temporarily suspended during the legislative process -- to resume collecting EB after the legislation goes into effect. But, as far as I am aware, this temporary suspension is unlikely to happen.

Thanks for the Info..however I'm somewhat confused as to what you wrote an what they said.

I have exhausted my regular benefits, along with Tier benefits and my last check is at the end of the month. I was told if the Gov. signed the bill, I would have to "Open a New Claim". Are you saying that is incorrect?
Thanks

Yes.

Without legislation to extend it, EB is expected to trigger off in New Jersey in May, with the last payment being made in June.

If you are due to exhaust the EUC Tiers by the end of April, NJ UI will automatically review your claim at that time for eligibility for EB (as it did for each of the four EUC Tiers), and you will receive your determination. You do not open a new claim at that time.

If you qualify for EB, your benefits should start shortly after you exhaust Tier IV. If EB is not extended, your payments will cease in June -- otherwise, you will continue to collect until you exhaust EB.

According to Arthur Delaney reporting for the Huffington Post, unless local lawmakers take action to extend EB, payments will stop on May 14 in Alaska, Alabama, and Kansas. Payments will stop in June in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey (though legislation to prevent the cutoff there is on the governor's desk).
