I too am in the same boat (and sinking fast) but in Colorado they told us to keep filing since we hit Teir IV and that it would be retroactive. Also not to refile because that would confuse the computers…hope that helps.

My husband was layed off through no fault of his own and was only on his first tier when it ended in June…he has apps and resumes’ out everywhere…you can’t make people hire you…so what are people suppose to do?…it’s basically the have’s refuse to give to the have nots….I don’t care how many tax cuts you give the wealthy…they are not creating jobs for people here…they are sending it overseas…I think once it leaves this country for someone else to do the work that an able bodied American can do and give a job to someone..it should not be let back in this country…or taxed so high they will want to bring it back to America…I can’t wait to vote in November….

kathyjo 07/22/2010 9:23am
How do you know what tier you were on? I received 77 weeks,I think….. definitely not 99. I’m in a high unemployment state, Ky. I can get no helpful info from the UI offices or their onlne site. I’ve been told to keep claiming my weeks….but the balance is 0…Do I re-file online, or will that hurt me if that’s not the route I’m supposed to take???? Errrrggghhhhhh…
kathyjo 07/22/2010 9:13am
The official count of unemployed also does not include the ones that didn’t qualify for unemployment,therefore they did not file. I know several that were fired or quit their last job, disqualifying them for benefits,in most cases.

At 218, the remaining not voted could have all voted against the bill and still have passed.

minimoe 07/22/2010 9:07am

Wonder when goes to him to sign? Tomorrow?

c-span just announced that the house has passed the bill

dls52174 07/22/2010 9:03am

With 232 “yay” are we at the simple majority? I believe so, but am afraid to assume that I am correct.

And even now that all the remaining non voted wouldn’t affect pass or fail, they don’t call it.

lordgotmilk 07/22/2010 9:00am

Here’s one of the inefficiencies that I’ve brought up…the vote timer has expired and still nearly half haven’t voted…what’s the reason for this? When the timer goes to zero, it should be over with.

lordgotmilk 07/22/2010 8:57am

So, once this passes, does anyone know where we can follow it to the president other than waiting on news to report it tonight?

lordgotmilk 07/22/2010 8:52am

As adamantly as they all spoke about this, you’d think much of the voting would be done already. I don’t consider myself less patient than others, so apparently the sheer inefficiency of this process is really on show….

Oh, the changes a group of regular people could make in this system.

I agree. The official unemployment numbers that are reported do not include what are referred to as “discouraged” who have given up looking for work. It also does not include those that are grossly under-employed and working for substantially less than they originally were making for the simple sake of taking a job. These facts are not conspiracy theories and there is plenty of information out there to validate that the “real” rate of unemployment is hovering around 20% nationally when the “discouraged” and the “under-employed” are counted in addition to the so-called “available work force”.

Abaratarrr 07/22/2010 8:42am

they are voting in the house now

And BTW. The only thing that destroyed the unions was the unions themselves and the Democraps who jacked up the minimum wages to over $8/hr. Between the two of them big business got smart and started sending jobs anywhere else where they could get less costly labor. End of unions. End of jobs. End of story. For every action the Democraps cook up there is always and equal and opposite reactions. The problem is the dumb voters who keep voting for the dumb Democraps. But the voters will probably never put 2 and 2 together as they have been dumbed down for so long by the Democraps. It is un F-ing believable how lame some folks are. You would think with our modern schools at least a few folks would wise up some day.

PART 3 – But the same option applies to anyone; white, black, brown, male, female, young or old. If you work for someone else get used to the fact that you are expendable and government will not suckle you from cradle to grave… not even the Demcraps. Once the November elections have come and gone and they get your bought and paid for votes then they will cut you off same as the Repubs. So, I suggest you wise up between now and then and ask the Democraps and Obama, “Why haven’t you used some of that $780 BILLION to teach folks how to start their own small businesses YET?” Good question huh? Instead they piss it away on worthless “stimulus” programs and pork, and bail outs, and tax credits for house buyers, and you name the jerk off ideas. What a bunch of losers.

PART 2 – Have any of you unemployed folks who do get the full meal deal ever wondered if it was even a FAIR deal to begin with? Life is a carp shoot when it comes to which votes the Democrats will buy next. And, BTW, there are 8 million jobs sitting out there waiting to be filled by the 8 million plus who have been milking the new 99+ week gig for over two years now. Jobs no unemployment office I know of has ever bothered to tell anyone about. Those jobs are posted down under SMALL BUSINESS OPORTUNITIES. All you have to do is START YOU OWN BUSINESS. That’s what I did. When you hit 50 years of age and nobody will hire you because your medical insurance costs more and because you are over qualified and you are a white male and smarter than 99% of the hiring managers out there then you have little or no option but to get creative and start learning how to become your own boss.

PART 1 – I have been “unemployed” from June 2004 until now. I looked for jobs for 26 long weeks, took my UE checks, paid my bills, found out there was another path vs. the UI line, and moved on. Nobody has ever called me and said, "Oh BTW you are now included some bill Congress passed that gives you retroactive UI payments for the extra 73 weeks that you did not get back when you got laid off. So, now you get to play catch up and get the same cut from the system everyone else gets…” I’d love to get an extra retroactive payment of around $36,500 for my fair share (at $500/wk average). What the F is really going on here? How come those who began getting UI payments 99 weeks or less ago get an extension from the Democraps but the folks who were laid off 100 or 101 or 1001 weeks ago and are still hunting and get squat?

mjh 07/22/2010 7:52am

and, what now is the official handling of the FAC as we move forward here with this bill, is it completely done for anyone starting ANY NEW TIER, or will it just not exist for those beginning UI state claims and successive tiers (no fac). I will be like many, be retroactive on a tier 1 dating back to last week’s payment.

WHAT CAN I SAY??? THIS HAS BEEN SUCH A LONG, DEMEANING, DEGRADING, HARROWING PERIOD OF SUFFERING AND WAITING AND BEING USED AS PAWNS BY THE PEOPLE WE ELECTED INTO GOVERNMENT POSITIONS!! MANY OF THEM SEEMED TO TAKE DELIGHT IN WATCHING US WALLOW AND BED. IT IS NOT BAD ENOUGH WHAT OUR EMPLOYERS HAVE DONE TO US, SOME UNNECESSARILY, BECAUSE WHERE I WAS EMPLOYED, THEY FIRED 25 OF US AND THEN REPLACED US ALL. THEN THEY HAD THE AUDACITY TO TRY TO BLOCK OUR U/C BENEFITS AND WE ALL HAD APPEAL HEARINGS AND WON!!! YET THIS IS ALLOWED BECAUSE PA IS AN AT-WILL-STATE!!! WE NEED TO KEEP PUSHING FOR MORE EXTENDED BENEFITS UNTIL THIS GOVERNMENT HELPS US TO FIND JOBS, OR MAKES LAWS TO KEEP CORPORATIONS/EMPLOYERS FROM DOING TO PEOPLE WHAT THEY DID TO ME!!!! YOUR SELF-ESTEEM IS CRUSHED, YOU BECOME ANTI-SOCIAL, YOU GET PHYSICALLY ILL, YOU FEEL WORTHLESS AND IT JUST SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE. THEY CARE MORE ABOUT ANIMALS/WILDLIFE/MARINE LIFE SUFFERING THAN THEY DO ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS!!!!!

“According to the official, the projects will be part of a five- year, 7.5-billion-dollar aid package approved by U.S. Congress last year, which hopes to temper anti-Americanism in Pakistan by building schools, infrastructure and democratic institutions” This was not paid for.WHY. America can not get help but pakistan can 7.5 Billion. GET THE MESSAGE PEOPLE!! WAKE UP!!

If you have any tiers left your unemployment will be reinstated and retroactive. Those instructions you were reading were for the last extension. So apparently you were in whatever tier you were in before 6/2 that is why it ended on 6/20 but you weren’t able to got to whatever your next tier was.

In America’s economic hay-day (50’s, 60’s, 70’s) small business drove 70% of the American workforce. (Neighbor helping neighbor) Obama is creating a good environment for the small business to come back and create enough jobs for Americans, however, China and other outside influences to our currupt congress isn’t helping a thing. …How about this as a solution: we have over-filled jails across America; how about instead of serving years, the prisoners serve work hours (based on productivity, of course)in factory jobs… No work, no time off your sentence!… How many millions of jobs would this create? … How fast would republicans shoot it down? … “too much government.. it would hurt the world economy” (china)

sniperxess 07/22/2010 5:49am

this is what is confusing me, it is on NC’s websites…..

Individuals must exhaust regular UI benefits no later than the week ending May 22, 2010 and qualify for EUC08 Tier 1 effective May 23, 2010. Individuals must exhaust the first, second, or third tier of EUC08 no later than the week ending May 29, 2010 to qualify for the next higher tier*****.

My last payment was on June 20th and i cant remember what tier….i think tier 1 or 2 but no higher!!!

so what does that mean? i dont get anything?

This all is a statement by the super-rich (that fund the republicans campaigns) that the American worker will work for less money! Ronnie Reagan and the republicans destroyed the unions (the voice of the people) and our wages will stay the same as the cost of living will continue to inflate. Also, the corporate loopholes Reagan put in drained billions of dollars of taxes that would have been collected each year from the super-rich. (America would have still been an economic power-house!) The bank bail out was approved in a matter of hours, yet the republicans (who all voted yes) all bash Obama for doing it! It did save millions of American jobs! Remember a republicans main purpose is to act as reverse robin hoods (steal from the middle-classed to feed the super-rich!) They make a fine living by being the corporate salesmen. They destroyed the Americans way of life and will not help us! … good luck fellow American … we need a revolution!
