I know it is probably to early to know what is gonna happen for sure when our tier II unemployment benefits run out I have 4 weeks left. But please update here when and if the Extended benefits kick in for you. That way people will know the facts as to "What to expect" to happen in their states. 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!

I have been on unemployment for 6 months. My original UI Benefits ran out 2 weeks ago. When my benefits reached 0, I immediately filled out the online EUC application. It was a quick process. I got my EUC benefits about a week after my regular UI ran out. It was very quick with me, I don't know about the other states.

Hello, new here. I'm trying to keep up with what's going on with unemployment benefits.

Anyway, I'm located in AZ. Job market is non-existent here. I've exhausted tier II benefits (been out of full time work since January 08). There are currently no other benefits available to me

There are no Tier III benefits included in the 'Economic Stimulus Package', to my knowledge. Guess I will get nothing for now. Nice.

I just got this off the NJ site: for the complete article see: Department of Labor and Workforce Development | Mar-20-09 New Jersey Qualifies for Federally Funded Extended Benefit Program (http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/lwdhome/press/2009/approved/032009_march_eb_release.html - broken link)


TRENTON March 20, 2009 – As of the week ending March 21, 2009, the state of New Jersey will qualify for the federally funded Extended Benefits (EB) program under the guidelines of the Federal-State Unemployment Compensation Act of 1970 and the New Jersey Extended Benefits Law.

[Excerpted information] As with regular unemployment insurance, after individuals exhaust their benefits they will be mailed notification about their eligibility for extended benefit programs including the EB program. Eligible individuals also will be mailed instructions on how to certify to receive the new benefits. Please note that there is no need to call or file a new claim to receive any of the extensions; the department automatically will enroll individuals to qualify for their next extension after their last check is mailed.

The first week that EB benefits are payable in New Jersey is the week ending March 21, 2009. Those who exhaust their Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Tier II benefits on or after the week ending March 21, 2009 will be mailed a separate monetary determination and a separate letter explaining their rights and responsibilities under the EB program.

Individuals who exhaust EUC Tier II benefits the week of March 21, 2009, will receive an EB information packet by April 9, 2009. Any individuals exhausting EUC Tier II benefits after April 9, 2009, will receive their EB information packet within a few days after receiving their last EUC Tier II benefits.

Thanks Precisio! (still doesn't solve the wrangle as to whether N.J. has draconian rules before they will give you your E.B., but is definitely helpful!)

p.s. perhaps someone will scan a copy of N.J.'s info packet, for us to judge ;-))

California here. Ran out of regular benefits last Sept (only got like 4-5 months) , and didn't know I was eligible for any extended. Never got anything from them saying I was. Finally applied on the website and found I was eligible for 6 week extension, which I've now exhausted. 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.
