I called the unemployment offices in NJ last week because there seemed to be an error on my computer when I went to file my benefits.

When I called, the guy said that I should call on the 10th because I will need to file a new claim. My date of claim was on 5/17/09. He said I may loose my benefits. I just started my second tier.

I know you do not know the circumstances, but does everyone need to file a new claim after a year? What if so, what makes them decide if I belong on unemployment?

If you need more information - I will be glad to tell you.

Yes - at the end of your benefit year you need to speak to an actual agent & either re-certify your claim, by answering a few questions, or open a new one if you have worked in the past year under circumstances which would qualify you for a new claim [seasonal, full-time temp job etc.].

If you have not worked in the past year, the process for re-certifying is fairly simple & you will continue on your way through whatever tiers you are eligible for according to cut-off dates.

The only work that I had was 1099 (self employment) - does that count?

By self employment, I sell Blackberry themes on mobihand.com - I work an hr a week...IF I work at all (design new themes). There are weeks that I do not work but do make anywhere from 85-100 a week.

While 1099 earnings will reduce the payment you receive from UI each week, they are not counted toward a new claim. Earnings from an employer who pays into the UI system and pays you on a W-2 basis are counted toward a new UI claim.

Whether or not you have worked over the past year -- and, if you have worked, regardless of the nature of your earnings -- you must still re-certify on the one-year anniversary of your original claim. When you re-certify at the one-year anniversary, UI will check to see if you have accumulated any earnings toward a new claim.

Is there any back lag? Will I receive weeks without a check?

As long as you re-certify on or immediately after your one-year anniversary, the verification is usually done immediately while you are on the telephone with the UI rep. So unless something unexpected turns up in your file to cause UI to halt your benefits, you resume receiving payments with no gap.
