With the bill that Christie recently signed, does anyone think theres a chance there might be more benefits beyond the 99 weeks?

Also, has anyone applied for General Assistance (GA)? And does anyone know what it pays?

There are NO benefits beyond the 99 weeks. The bill which Christie signed puts NJ laws in compliance w/fed regs so it can continue to pay EB. The bill did not change available benefits in any way.

The current political situation doesnt look very good with elections coming and are huge debt along with government spending out of control. If anything as previous years have shown they will wait until the last minute if not a little longer to pass any bills concerning unemployment

To add to all the economic woes, I just read the headline that NJ unemployment has actually risen from 9.3% to 9.4 % for the month of May. We are obviously going in the wrong direction!

The whole country is going in the wrong direction. NJ is no different.
