Before I even start I just want to say that, if I do in fact ask a stupid question, or more then one of those, or do something like that in combination with missing a previous topic on this, then I apologize.

Alright, so I collected Unemployment(in NYC) starting in 2009, all the way into 2011.

So the reason I'm confused is two fold, but first the base question-

If my Benefit Year Ending date was back in 2010, why did I continue to receive Unemployment benefits all the way into 2011? I know I used up Unemployment, and then was put on extended benefits, but as for "tiers" or what have you, not a clue. I didn't even know what those were until I found this forum and did some reading.

That being said, I wouldn't even be looking over this, since my Unemployment balance has remained at $0 for some time now, BUT yesterday I got a letter in the mail noting that I may be eligible for six weeks of Tier 4 Emergency Unemployment Benefits. I also don't remember the system processing my request when my benefits were used up last time, so yeah...very much only able to speculate, but had I not got this letter on a Saturday, and it was a weekday, I probably could have just asked phone rep from the Dept. of Labor about this.

Oh well.

So what I'm wondering is, do I need to submit a new claim, or just wait-

I tried the online method, and it actually claimed to have processed by...well claim for Unemployment, but the balance still says $0. This is the same method I always used to claim Unemployment each week.

Again, sorry if this question was already answered, but I didn't see anything like it when I searched.

Oh yeah, thanks for reading.

NY just triggered back on to TIer 4 benefits, beginning June 4 for the week ending 6/9-10 (NY weeks go Monday-Sunday). You need to call NY to determine if you are actually eligible and when the money would be available to claim. Today is way too early for NY to have credited your account.
New York begins a payable period in Tier 4 of the EUC 2008 program Monday, June 4, 2012.

The 13 week mandatory "on" period in New York for Tier 4 of the EUC program begins June 4, 2012. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in the EUC program will increase from 47 weeks to 53 weeks.

Yep you were right, but since I couldn't sleep I decided to check the Unemployment page around 5 AM, and noted that the balance showed a change, and my certification for benefits as of yesterday had gone through.

So it would seem I will be getting Unemployment, and at the absolutely most needed time as well.

Hopefully things go well for everyone else, but thank you again Ariadne22 for clearing it up for me yesterday!
