I got a message while filing this morning:

• Your claim expires on July 10, 2013. If you worked in the past 15 months you may file a new claim. Be ready to provide the names, addresses and dates of employment for all employers.
I HAVE worked in the past 15 months (granted, june 2012 was a LONG time ago).

The last I worked was in June of 2012, will I qualify for a new claim?

What is that criteria based on?

Confused as to what this means; I thought I still had 2 months left on tier 2 and then I was cut off?

Thanks for any advice. In the state of MASS by the way.

Your state needs to perform a normal benefit-year-end (bye) recertification of your claim. You will either continue on EUC from your earlier claim, or be granted a new state claim, with your remaining EUC available for future use if legislation is still in place.

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.

You say you last worked in June 2012, and your claim expires July 2013. Therefore, you have not worked since you filed for benefits in July 2012. If you haven't worked since you filed for benefits, you won't have a new claim. Your earlier earnings can only be used for a new claim at your bye if you have worked during the benefit year of your first claim.

Therefore, MA will continue to pay what remains of your EUC Tier 2 until exhausted.
