    Good question below,what about those of us who ran out of benefits in like june or something and were told there are no more, do we get help as well? anyone know if it will be automatic or we will have to re-file?

  • tiffany5839 09/21/2009 3:11pm

    as long as your benefit year has not ended then you will get them and not have to reapply

    It depends on your state. We always have to reapply.

    Yes indeed. History repeats itself over and over here.

    I did it in a better time many years ago. I came out much stronger and wiser. Many are doing it in their own way now.

    What will you find at the end of the journey?

    Trailing Indicators: Out of a Job, Some Decide to Take a Hike

    RUTLAND, Vt. — Unable to find steady work in a dismal Florida job market, Dan Kearns did something a lot of gainfully employed Americans can only dream of: Ditch the straight life and hike the length of the Appalachian Trail.

    Alright so let me get this straight. I live in Connecticut. So not only are we not getting the 7 weeks of EB but we will not qualify for the new federal extension either??? How could this be? Can’t exceptions be made? I mean everyone in CT knows the numbers have been messed with.

    This is insane.

    NOT ONLY THAT THE REST OF THE STATES HAVE A 20 WEEK ADVANTAGE ON US-DID YOU HEAR PRATT & WHITNEY IS OUT OF HERE- I KNOW 4 PEOPLE WHO GOT THE AX WITHIN THE LAST WEEK!!!

    John, the House has 2:00 to 6:30 set aside tomorrow for “legislation.” No votes on bills until 6:30. Ways and Means committee has possibly reviewed NELP’s suggestions and that may be part of the “legislation” process before the votes. Nobody can predict the future (or I would have won the lottery by now) so we have to wait and see what happens. Seeing as how the senior member of the Senate Finance committeee is in a state that has an average of 6.6, it is also possible that if the House doesn’t amend the bill, the Senate will. I have to say that I think NELP’s tier level suggestion may be a little expensive at this point in time but I think an agreement of 13 weeks for all states is highly possible.

    here’s the bottom line your in conn. your TUR is 7.9 you have been at this level for a month and ahalf ,nothings going to change in the month and ahalf
    get over it already, scan back over the last 75 pages, you look like a broken record, you can complain for the next 75 pages, nobody here is going to be able to change that and didn’t make it what it is. I wish I could change landscape with you ! what you are considering bad numbers in your IUR and TUR
    right now is the same numbers my state when the economy is good ! and we don’t even do a third of the crying and fuss you people are putting up.

    A question
    Gov. Rell signed a bill along with 22 other governors asking Congress for additional help for the unemployed? do you think the Senate may change there mind & add all states.
