Hello, I need some advice for my situation asap. I am on NY UI since last Dec 2010, I worked on a project for 4 monthes from May to Sept in NJ between during which I didnot claim anything. After my temporary work my UI was reinstated and I enterted tier 1. Now my effective date is coming up next week and NY is asking me to file claim with NJ even though I worked only for 4 months in NJ. My question:

1. Will my claim in NJ be a brand new claim.
2. What happens if my wages are not enough to qualify in NJ? Do I go back to EUC tier 1 in NY?
3. Is there any waiting period in this process.

Please respond asap, if anyone is aware. I am pretty tensed about this new development as I never expected that I will have to file in NJ as my work there was only for 4 months.

Ah, yes, the old multi-state/combined claim yo-yo. NJ will have to deny benefits before you can resume NY EUC. These states play ping-pong on this all the time.

Read this thread:

//www.city-data.com/forum/work-...ims-nj-ny.html

There are others, as well, if you do a search.

Call or visit NJ immediately, get a claim denial, or a determination on a NJ and/or NJ/NY combined claim. There is no way around it.

If a new claim is opened, those benefits will be paid first, unless the benefit is $100 or 25% lower than your previous claim, then you might be able to defer those benefits under HR4213 and receive benefits under the old claim.

It may be a week or two before you get this straightened out.

Every report we've had on this board involving two states is a PITA and requires patience and persistence on YOUR part.

At least NJ has offices you can visit.

Good luck.

Based on this:

Where are the unemployment offices located in NJ?
New Jersey's One Stop Career Centers (http://www.wnjpin.net/oscc/index.html - broken link) page lists all the job-related offices in the state. Choose your county and a town or center near you to view all the services offered, including unemployment insurance.

Frequently Asked Questions | Employment
The offices are located here:

Department of Labor and Workforce Development | One-Stop Career Centers

Generally what happens is you are able to speak to a rep via phone at these offices. Some people do actually see live people. If there is a receptionist, talk to her first.
