Good for them! It depends on each state and if they have funds left. I am sure a lot of states don't have the funds which is why we need
HR 589.

Troy,

48 states & Hawaii? So does that mean that Sarah Palin is NOT a United States citizen?

Back on topic, RI received money for the same type of program last year. It was up to the states how to disperse it. I have NO clue what RI did with it and wish I knew how to find out! Twisted Evil

All this money came from the Oregon State Unemployment Trust Fund that is funded Oregon employers paying a percentage of the payroll for each employee into this fund. After researching this fund it is normally around $2 billion (in good times) as of the first of March it was about $900 million. To quote the Oregon Employment Dept...

"The UI Trust Fund is forward-funded to provide sufficient resources for 18 months of benefits during recessionary conditions. To date, 36 states have borrowed federal funds to pay their claimants as their trust funds became insolvent. The U.S. Department of Labor anticipates up to 40 states may have to borrow funds at some point during this economic cycle.


Even after paying out a record $2.8 billion in benefits during 2010, thanks to the state’s tax model and supporting funds from the Federal government for unemployment extensions, Oregon will not have to borrow funds."

There were some states with high UE rates that were given additional funds from the Federal govt. last year and RI was one of them. They could have done something like this with it, but those funds were allocated elsewhere. I believe they hired additional personnel at the Department of Labor and Training with part of it.

Or additional administrative cost to take care of all of us. SB 638 was for $30 million but I believe the payout is just $26 mil with $4 mil for taking phone calls and sending out checks.

I thought I read this on this forum

Post by woodhorse74 on Sun Jun 12, 2011 11:56 am

I think I read that some state possibly Oregon got additional weeks after
the 99. Am I correct on this and if so, how did that happen?

Yes I believe that is correct. I will try to find the thread to be sure and bump it up for you. It can be done on a state level if they have the funds, I believe.

Some states returned the money. They were as Desp. said not under any obligation to use it for anything specific, such as 99ers as Oregon did. PA and NJ used some of the money to offset their higher than expected payouts of unemployment compensation.

States with high unemployment rates were given additional funds from the federal government to use at their discretion to help lower the ue rates. All the states that were allotted these funds used them for other purposes, such as job training. Oregon chose to pay an additional 6 weeks to the individuals who had exhausted all their benefits.

I believe that the state ran out of this money before the full 6 weeks were paid out to everyone so I'm not sure if all got the full 6 weeks. Someone from Oregon may be able to help you.

SB 638 did not use any federal money it came from Oregon's Unemployment Trust Fund. There was a total of 30mil that was supposed to last six weeks for what they thought would be 17,500 people, but when 23-24,000 (proof they have no idea how many of us there are) requested benefits it was cut back to four weeks. So I guess I'm a 103er.

"The House also endorsed Senate Bill 638, which offers an additional six weeks of state benefits to Oregonians who have been out of work for more than 99 weeks and have exhausted all other benefits, including the federal extensions.

Officials say they plan to contact the estimated 17,500 Oregonians who could be eligible. The Employment Department will spend up to $30 million from the unemployment insurance trust fund to pay for those benefits. "

"(b) 'Oregon emergency benefits' means unemployment benefits
funded entirely by this state and payable under ORS chapter 657
to individuals described in subsection (2) of this section during
the emergency benefit period."
