I hope someone can answer my question. I was laid off from my job March 29th 2012. I collected the full 26 weeks of New Jersey regular unemployment Compensation. Then I was placed in the Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation program in September 2012. I collected 14 weeks as part of Tier I until December when Tier II kicked for another 14 weeks, which doesn't end until March 31st 2013. On March 25th, I went online to claim the previous two weeks and the website said the benefit year has expired, no unemployment benefits are available at this time. I checked my claim status and I still have a remaining extended benefits balance. However, at the top of the screen it says my claim has been pended. I assume this means it's been held up for some reason. Last week, for the first time I was sent a form to fill out to show jobs that I applied for. I did so, but could this be why my claim is pended? Tried calling NJ dept of labor and it's a 3 hour hold.

In NJ, you MUST call and speak to a representative at the end of your benefit year.

If you don't want to do that, go to a local one-stop office. There are phone banks there. Probably won't have to wait 30 min.
8. I've been collecting for a year and am on Tier 2. My claim expires next week. What happens now?

Some states automatically perform the recertification process as long as you continue to file weekly or biweekly claims. In most states, you will need to telephone your state to RECERTIFY your claim. Your state will do a monetary reevaluation for a new claim. If you have not had eligible earnings during your past benefit year, your "application for a new claim" will be denied, your old claim reopened and you continue to receive benefits on that claim. You may receive confusing correspondence at this time, especially in Illinois. Be sure to telephone your state if this happens - and keep claiming if the system allows.
