I, living in IL, need to extend UB and have found the work search requirement as follow:

"You must have at least five employer contacts per week and apply for work on at least three days during each week you are claiming and daily, make positive efforts to find work. If you claim EB for a week you do not meet these requirements, you will be ineligible for that week and all future EB payments until you return to work and requalify."

I am not sure if this statement was there from long time ago or was updated recently. Based on this statement, if I only applied jobs to 33 to 4 companies on 2 days per week, what will happen?

Is there anyone who knows when this statement was updated?

There's 3 kinds of unemployment

Regular claim up to 26 weeks

Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) for up to 53 weeks

And Extended Benefits (EB) for 20 weeks.

What you're citing is the work search requirement when a claimant is on Extended Benefits (EB). IL has been off extended benefits since 5/12/12. What you're citing is not applicable to where you're at in the claims process. Because as of 5/13, there is no Extended Benefits (EB) available to you.

You need to figure out what the work search requirement is during your first round of up to 26 weeks of benefits because the EUC extensions have the same requirements. What you've quoted is the more stringent requirements for extended benefits (EB).

Exactly. If you are at a point where you need EB, unfortunately those are no longer available to you.
