Yes, we know!! you must be a newbie...if you are telling us this information at this late date...;-) EB passed in my state in late Feb/early March! i didn't say it was difficult, I just said it was more hoops, which it is. Just a reality statement. And my comment was specifically tailored to MM 2008, because she ALREADY filed a re-file claim, so her last post several weeks ago, she was complaining because she didn't understand why she had to re-file again, when they had already rejected her. A good question, imo. ;-) and yes, everyone has a slightly different situation, but the rules are generally the same.

In all the calls I've made to UIA since being unemployed in January of 2008, they have been very nice, and done all they could to help me. Yes, I've waited on hold for 10+ minutes like everyone else, but that's a small price to pay to actually get paid. I have no complaints. 79 totaly weeks of bens. when Michigan leads the nation in unemployment, I think they are doing what they can to help us. GO MICHIGAN! LOL. (Now find me a job!)

Yeah Gea12345 I guess each time they make you do a new claim/and determination of regular benefits If your benefit year has past before they will send you on to the next step for any extended benefits.

I didnt think I was to do the EB application this early on but when I called the unemployment office she told me to go ahead and do it since I only had two weeks left of tier 2 at that time. Now I wonder how it works with these next 7 weeks added. Not sure if there is anything else to quailify, sounds like it is automatic. Will see what Marvin says tomorrow when I call I guess.

Hardly a newbie since I've been collecting since Jan. of 2008. Funny, I thought this was a string about people being supportive and informative about collecting unemployment benefits...you have to file an new standard claim and then an EB claim, which is not re-filing the same thing...but don't worry, I'll keep my opinions to myself from now on...

Well, good luck!! and I am obviously very thankful that I didnt' have to refile to get my EUC. Very painless! (and my benefit year has elapsed.) But I hope that things work out for you. I just came back from a week in Canada...so I thought you had told me about your call to the U.C. a couple weeks ago. I didnt' realize that was just to get over the re-file hurdle. Now you have to do the file E.B. hurdle! But at least it is there, since for many in other states it is not.
