Question about Federal Extended Benefits in Ma?

Post by baseq3 on Tue May 31, 2011 2:33 pm

Hello friends

I found out i will be laid off next week which only gives me 20 weeks of work since my last claim expired i was a 99er and stopped getting benefits last September and was able to get a job in January.I did find out the formula for determining benefits and i do qualify for 18 weeks of benefits but my question is once that expires will i qualify for any extended benefits and how many tiers if any ??? Thanks Smile

It sounds like you will exhaust your initial ui claim in mid-October. I'm not sure how many weeks of Tier 1 you will get based on your earnings. That is the only extension you can count on right now - the Federal extended benefit program ends on December 31. If you are on Tier 1 at that time, you will continue to receive benefits until the funds are exhausted. There will be no further Federal extensions.

I don't think MA is one of the states that continues EB once the Federal program ends. It would be highly unlikely given that MA's ue rate is under 8% now.

Yes, but you can do an interstate claim through the RI Dept. of Labor and Training. You would still be collecting from MA though and subject to the MA EB rules. That is unfortunate. RI is one of the states that continues EB when the Federal program ends, and having the 3rd highest unemployment rate in the country, it is unlikely they will end it.
