Not searching, preparing for future openings. But I was asking because you are at the point where you will not be elgible for nothing. So you will have to take something eventually.

Really? Gosh thanks for filling me in on that part cause....ya know I DO already have a job, and have had this job for a few years now and guess what? Went from 40 hrs to almost nothing a week. Thanks for also making me aware of the fact that I am at the point of not getting anything real soon here. OH and do you care to know that I have 3 small children here at home and yes, they do have a daddy (I do have a husband) that works full time but ya know what????? In June their contract is up and he may be out of a job too.......so yeah....when that something comes around I will be sure to eventually take it!!!!

My tier 2 has run out on april 1st & on saturday i got a letter saying that i would be eligible for extended benefits but i have to come in person to the office to file. So, all you people worrying you will get the same treatment. I am in south carolina. It is for all states who has high unemployment over 6.5 percent. Yall, gonna get some relief thanks to the new stimilus package.

Default Extended Benefits Claims

I am in Michigan. My Tier II will run out with my next call in on April 13th. I received a letter from UIA stating I may qualify for the Extended Benefits - but the information is confusing. The notice says your benefit year end date must be 1/31/09 or later. However, the PDF on the UIA website regarding EB's says, you must have exhausted your Tier II ON OR AFTER 1/25/09, but if you exhausted Tier II PRIOR to 1/25/09, THEN your benefit year end must be 1/31/09 or later. So which is it?

When I filed my original claim in January of 2008, because of severance and payroll payment through 1/31, UIA closed and reopened my claim to begin 2/4/08, which should have adjusted my benefit year dates but they never reissued an claim year. I'm confused because the letter I got says one thing, the "offical" PDF from UIA says something else, both were updated in March 2009. I filed my claim for EB, all I can do is wait and see what I get in the mail.

It says I may be elibgible for the 2nd extension on their website, and they are "supposed" to automatically file it for me. Since that didn't happen the first time if it doesn't say anything when I get my last check this week I'll be on the website applying myself again.
So when I got my last check for the 1st extension last week there was a separate letter saying I would be receiving the 2nd extension. I didn't have to re-apply this time. So I didn't have to do anything from extension 1 to 2 like I did between the regular claim and the 1st extension. I had to re-apply as a new claim after the regular one ran out, and they didn't give any kind of input as to whether there even was an extension. I tried for weeks to get an actual person on their phone as I had questions, but finally just applied as a new claim online to get the 1st extension.

There are no Tier III benefits included in the 'Economic Stimulus Package', to my knowledge. Guess I will get nothing for now. Nice.
I live in AZ too, and have been laid off since September 2008. And you are right Glitterbug, there are literally NO JOBS ANYWHERE in Arizona. Sure, you have your call center jobs, but who wants to work under extremely stressful situations for extremely low pay? I am an Office professional myself, and where I live, there is nothing.

"you must have exhausted your Tier II ON OR AFTER 1/25/09, but if you exhausted Tier II PRIOR to 1/25/09, THEN your benefit year end must be 1/31/09 or later. So which is it?"

If you were receiving EUC Tier 1 & 2, and exhausted the benefits after 1/25/09 you qualify for Extended Benefits (EB); if you are still receiving EUC benefits then you qualify for EB when you exhaust all EUC benefits. For most people this is what will apply to them as most people have just recently begun to exhaust all EUC benefits.

For those that exhausted all EUC benefits PRIOR to 1/25/09, then the criteria to qualify for Extended Benefits (EB) is their benefit year end has to be 1/31/09 or later. If their benefit year ending is prior to 1/31/09 then they will not qualify for EB.

Thanks for the reply Embagel. Where did you get this info? It sounds like what was on the UIA website fact sheet, but that is what contradicts what was in the notices sent out. It will be great if this is true, as I have one UE check left, but I can't seem to find a clear, official answer anywhere.
