    Question on UI Extensions. We live in California and My hubbys UI runs out in about 2 checks……. finding a job is ?? What does he need to do for an extension, will it just be automatic on his paperwork he has been getting every other week with a check or does he have to go and fill something out online again. I am such a wreck.

    Thanks

    I received a letter this summer stating that I qualify for the EUC. I did find employment through a staffing service before I needed the EUC. My assignment at the staffing agency has ended and they do not have anything else for me and I have yet to find another job. Will I still qualify for the EUC?

    I called last week about EUC. I did not qualify to open a new claim, but was told that I did qualify for EUC. I called this morning to file my claim as I was told to, and it said I needed to talk to a representative. I don’t know what is going on. I was told that it was definite that I would be receiving the extention. I don’t know what I am going to do if I don’t. I am a nervous wreck. Anyone else in the same boat?

    I see on the internet on Florida’s web site that another extension was signed and effective November 23 2008. My Unemployment ran out the 4th of this month so I am on the phone this AM trying to get thru to see if I have to start a new claim or if I can just pick up where I left off? Anyone else going thru this?

  • Anonymous 11/24/2008 9:39pm

    Looks like EUC has been extended and what’s even greater is that states with unemployment rates of 6% or more, compensation will be doubled. That’s 26 weeks or your full original qualifying amount. You’ll still recieve the same amount of payment each week. You will not be able to file for the EUC Extention benefits until November 30th. I can put off being homeless for a litte while longer. If anyone involved in the introduction and passing of this Act is reading this, I would just like to explain that you are all deeply in my debt and the debt of all the other 3.5 million people who will be needing this. God bless you and God bless America!

    For the comment posted Nov. 24:

    When you file for Emergency Unemployment(EUC) it’s like starting a whole new claim. You’ll get a new starting date. The amount you recieve will either be 13 weeks at the same weekly amount or half of your Maximum Benifit Amount for your benefits which just ran out. If you unlucky enough to be in a state with an unemployment rate of 6% or higher your amount will be doubled. If you haven’t already filed for Emergency Unemployment, you should be able to file for that ASAP. But if you’ve exhausted an EUC claim, you must wait until Nov. 30th to file for the EUC extention. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    YOUR INFO ON THE EUC DID HELP BUT I AM CONFUSED? SHOULD I GO ONLINE AND START A NEW CLAIM NOW OR WAIT TILL THE 30TH? MY EUC BENEFITS RAN OUT THE 4TH OF THIS MONTH.

    MY DARLING SILLY BOY…

    WE JUST CANT GO ON LIKE THIS…MY THOUGHTS HAVE BEEN WITH YOU FROM THE TIME I FIRST MET YOU ON HERE. THINKING MAYBE, JUST MAYBE YOU HAD FORSAKEN ME.. BUT I JUST READ ON THE OTHER PAGE, YOU HAVE SOUGHT ME OUT. MY FAMILY IS FINE THANK YOU, ALTHOUGH XMAS WILL BE DIFFICULT UNTIL WE GET THE EXTENSION. NO ONE IS HIRING AROUND HERE, AND SEVERAL LARGE PLANTS ARE CLOSING, DUE TO THE ECONOMY. HAVE VISITED STARBUCKS FACILITIES, AND THOUGHT JUST MAYBE I WOULD SEE YOU THERE, AS I SIT THERE DRINKING MY MOCHA LATTE WITH FOAM. PLEASE SAY YOU HAVENT GIVEN UP ON ME.. PLEASE SAY..YOU WILL MEET ME…FOR DRINK AT STARBUCKS…
    …THINKING OF YOU…….MOONPIE

    I got a job 2 days before the extension passed. Got the letter, didn’t fill it out, because I started a new job Monday after the 4th of July. Now today I got laid off again. Do you think I am still eligible for the extension. My claim ran out June 2008. I am claiming in Kansas.

  • Anonymous 12/20/2008 11:19am

    Hello again I’m back,
    You may remember me by that phrase; I coined it for my .Org communications.
    I have not posted for a while although I have monitored the postings daily and I must say I am somewhat shocked, perplexed and confused. I say this because I am still reading the same complaints with the same questions about the same thing. Granted this forum is to inform you on unemployment bill status, but seriously, that dose not pay the bills.

    Respectfully I will admit this will not help everyone here but I still implore you that can to investigate this opportunity fully. In other words STOP LOOSING YOUR HOMES AND WORRYING ABOUT BILLS UNTIL YOU HAVE EXHAUSTED EVERY OPTION! This is one option you have not considered.
    I posted this systematic money making free with instructions opportunity before but without explanations,
    Sorry about that.

    This is an opportunity to start making twenty-five dollars or more per hour in a matter of hours, all you need to do is put as much time an effort in this free program as you do in reading and posting here. You will have instant access to your money through your free Pay Pal Account.

    Please consider, there will probably be a multitude of negative remarks posted about this, I know because I have posted before and there was then and it may have influenced some of you not to try this offer with a guarantee to begin making money within twenty-four hours or receive One- hundred dollars by the Company Co-Founder.

    Therefore, I am trying once more; think about earning twenty or more dollars per hour and having instant access to your money through your free Pay Pal account. You could possibly have hundreds of dollars to spend for the holidays or whatever you choose. ( 5 Days to shop)

    Here is how I started for free, second posting.

    1. 1 copy & paste http://www.incomeupgrader.com Free
    1. 2. Option # 1. Center of page for this offer, I suggest you read all no skimming it’s all-good. Free
    1. 3. Sign- up Free
    1. 4. Read qualifying instructions. Free
    1. 5. Some offers require money; I chose to open a free bank account, checking or savings. Free
    1. 6. Begin earning money. Free
    1. 7. Please come back and post so that others who remain skeptical will fill comfortable enough to begin
      Improving there lives also. Free The feeling of helping, Priceless joining in, Free.

    I truly hope this helps some, if it dose you have my web site please stay in touch.
    I have so much more coming for the New Year.

    Merry Christmas,
    Happy Holidays

    Roy.
