Yes, i don't know since i am in philadelphia, not in michigan, but based on research i have done for other posters, these are different pots of money!! When I did the small business program, I was granted a waiver to not have to look for work!! Once you get in this program, you just have to worry about their rules, not EU or EB rules!! imo

don't worry and study Well!!

I don't know why it wouldn't. But I have not ventured into that arena, mostly because I heard it took so long to actually get into the program. How long did it take you to get your NWLB funds to get started?

Will be getting my last two week tier 2 check in the mail today or tomorrow. Hoping some info is in it about the additional 7 weeks, or the EB determination because I have heard nothing back since I applied for the EB a couple weeks ago. Not sure when the additional 7 weeks start up either....Im gonna call today after the mail runs I think.

Michiganmom: I got my last Tier II payment yesterday and have not yet heard on my EB ap that I filled out about 11 days ago. When I called to see if they had it, the guy told me someone would look at it when it got closer to my time...whatever that means. But like you, I am going to check the mail today and call them if I haven't gotten anything.

I know there are threads with multiple websites and everyone is posting stuff that might happen, or is soon to happen....Post here EXACTLY what is happening currently in your state and particular situation. If you have 2 weeks left of tier II and you just received a letter from UIA with information about Extended Benefits....let us know stuff like that!


Please subscribe to this thread so you can find it later. Also if every visitor would post something so it keeps the thread current and so viewers can find us. Like.."I have 5 weeks left" or "1 week", "Im from California just waiting and watching", "I ran out 2 months ago and Nothing yet for us here in (whatever state)" you know...stuff like that!

2009 Ohio’s Extension of Unemployment Compensation Benefits]Frequently Asked Questions
On April 1, 2009, Governor Ted Strickland signed legislation amending Ohio law to allow
up to 20 weeks of additional unemployment compensation (UC) for eligible Ohioans
Individuals can now receive these state-extended benefits after their federal-extended
benefits expire. This legislative change was made to take advantage of the 100 percent
federal funding of state-extended benefits offered by the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act
Who is eligible to receive this extension?
Currently unemployed individuals who satisfy all of the following criteria could qualify if
they
*have ave ehausted all regular state UC benefits and federal Emergency Unemployment
Compensation (EUC) as of February 22, 2009, or later;
*have no rights to regular UC, federal-extended benefits, or state-extended benefits
under any other state unemployment compensation law or federal law or in Canada
What are individuals eligible for?
Individuals are eligible to receive up to 20 weeks of additional benefits, for a total of up to 9 weeks overall. These benefits are known as “Ohio Extended Benefits, or Ohio EB.”
The extended benefit amounts will be the same as claimants’ previous UC benefit amount
unless there is some other change in circumstances (such as an adjustment in deductions,
like child support).
would be the course of benefits, in order of payment:
*Regular UC (state funded) -- 26 weeks
* First phase federal emergency unemployment (EUC, federally funded) – 13 weeks
*Second phase EUC, Tier 1 (federally funded) -- 7 weeks[/LEFT]
* Second phase EUC, Tier 2 (federally funded) -- 13 weeks[/LEFT]
*Ohio EB, Tier 1 (100% federally funded through 12/31/09) -- 13 weeks[/LEFT]
* Ohio EB, Tier 2 (100% federally funded 12/31/09) -- 7 weeks
Total eligible weeks through 12/31/09 = 79 weeks
I think I am eligible for extended benefits. What do I do?
Potentially eligible individuals who exhaust their unemployment benefits will receive
instructions by mail or by phone in the next several weeks on how to file for Ohio EB.
How long will it take to process my application and start benefit payments?
We are reprogramming our unemployment delivery system to be able to issue the extended benefit. When we begin processing Ohio EB, claimants will receive payment retroactive
to February 22 or their date of federal EUC exhaustion, whichever is later. Following that
initial payment, subsequent payments will be issued on a routine weekly or biweekly basis,
by preferred payment method (debit card or electronic funds transfer)
How can I find out if my payment has been issued?
By visiting http://unemplo yment.ohio.gov or by calling 1-877-OHIO JOB (644-6562)and selecting the option to obtain information about your unemployment compensation
claim. Both options require a personal identification number (PIN).
How may I file continued claims of Ohio extended benefits?
Once a favorable determination has been made, continued weeks may be claimed via our
self-service Web site (http://unemployment.ohio.gov ) or by calling 1-877-OHIO JOB
(644-6562) and following the recorded instructions. These options require a personal
identification number (PIN).
]Are there any special weekly eligibility requirements?
Yes. In addition to being able and available for work, an individual is expected to make a
more diligent and active search for work than would normally be required of an individual
receiving regular UC or federal EUC benefits. Two job contacts must be made each week,
on different days of the week.
How are these benefits being paid for? With certain exceptions, the program is being financed by the federal government forindividuals who establish eligibility on or before December 26, 2009. The program will be
phased out for individuals who began receiving state-extended benefits prior to December
26, 2009. The last week payable for this program will be the week ending May 29, 2010.

MichiganCap,

I was accepted into the No Worker Left Behind (NWLB) program right away.

When I first applied for NWLB in the beginning of 2007, I was to go to Oakland Community College for an Associates degree in Information Assurance, however the college was unable to fill out the paperwork correctly.

Then in the middle of 2007 I attempted to go to Henry Ford Community College for an Associates in Information Assurance, Michigan Works would not pay for this based on the fact that O*net (see link below) indicates that it would take a Bachelor degree before one could obtain a job (Michigan Works would only pay for a 2 year degree not for a 4 year degree).

Michigan Works ended up paying my tuition and book to go to Macomb Community College in the Winter semester of 2008. Where I am enrolled in the Cisco Networking Academy program, earning an Associate of Applied Science degree in Information Technology (IT) as a Networking Specialist (SO FAR I HAVE EARNED 41 OF THE 63 CREDITS REQUIRED).

Wow~! that is an excellent story!! and yes, they will only pay for 2 years...but there are a lot of good fields that you can get hired after 2 years, and fortunately, thank god, computers is still one of them!!

I went to Macomb Community College and my ex-boyfriend did too! I am amazed that the other cc's didnt' offer the IT degree??!


good luck!!

Is there anyone from NJ that has info on EB benefits after Tier 2 runs out?? I claimed my last Tier 2 check this week and I'm wondering how long it is going to take for EB to kick in. I know they automatically file the claim for you but how long is it taking for them to process the checks etc.?? Any info would be appreciated.
