Hi everyone,
My 26 weeks of NJ unemployment benefits will terminate soon. How can I know if I am eligible for extended unemployment benefits?
(I worked full time in NJ for an uninterrupted three year time span making 40k/annum)

Thanks for your quick response
-I am nervous about how to make ends meet.

Your employment history will qualify you for EUC. In NJ, the base-year earnings used to establish the claim need to be 40x weekly earnings. NJ is presently paying all 4 tiers, which should take you to the end of the year. NJ will transfer you to EUC when your state benefits are exhausted. Due to the sequester, your weekly EUC benefit will probably be reduced about 11%. Keep claiming.

This is an oxymoron.

You cannot already be receiving one tier and then not be eligible for the next tier - unless you have a new claim.

Even then, when that claim is exhausted, you can go back to collect any unexhausted tiers from an earlier claim - if legislation is still in place.

In other words, if you are already collecting a tier, you are eligible for the next tier, assuming your state is still paying that tier.

I have a question regarding EUC. My earnings from working in Florida were not included in my wage determination. Due to this, I am four weeks short of the required 20 to qualify for EUC. My claim is in NJ. What should I do? My balance for this claim will be zero in two weeks.

Are you sure about this? Has NJ told said you are ineligible for EUC?

What is your weekly benefit amount?

What is the total $$ amount of earnings used for this claim?

If you do not meet the 20 weeks, you should qualify in NJ for EUC if base-year earnings for this claim are 40x your weekly benefit.

http://workforcesecurity.doleta.gov/...10/special.pdf - see pages 4-3/4

NJ was able to qualify you initially on NJ earnings alone so didn't use FL earnings in a combined wage claim which might have qualified you for EUC. States are not required to qualify you for the best possible benefit - only use a minimum standard to establish eligibility.

If you do not meet the 40x test, you could appeal, but it is doubtful NJ will at this point include those FL earnings - however it is worth a try. Contested claims in NJ take 6 months for a resolution. I'm not sure how quickly NJ would attempt to review your request to recalculate your original monetary determination. Your best bet would be to call and speak to a rep. Your chances of getting a correct answer will vary depending on who you talk with.
