PA resident / 'Commuter' status for NJ EB

I Live in Northeast PA,a commutable distance to NJ (Wayne co). Also, when I filed my original claim I was working in NJ, and Living in Bucks County PA. Do I fall under the classification of commuting non resident, therefore (if I understand correctly) I am entitled to the same EB benefits as a NJ State Resident? (Right now, PA has 13 weeks of EB, NJ Has 20 weeks) as as a 'Commuter' I would receive 20 instead of 13, where as if I lived in let's say Pittsburgh, a distance too far to commute I would not be eligible to receive the 20 weeks? Also, I would love to speak to a UI agent about this, does anyone have a number that you can get a person on the phone? Thank you all so much for the info! Here is from the NJ State website:

Claimants residing in New Jersey or out-of-state claimants classified as commuters (lived in another state and commuted to work in New Jersey), eligible claimants living in Canada or claimants residing in a state/territory in an approved EB period, are eligible for 20 weeks or 80% of their maximum benefit amount on their original claim whichever amount is less if EB qualification occurs in an approved EB period. Interstate claimants who are not commuters and reside in a state or territory which is not in a federally approved EB period, are only entitled to receive the first two weeks of EB benefits

I have a similar issue. I live in NJ but worked in NY, thus I receive my unemployment through NY. NY has just been cut off of EB because they have fallen JUST below the 8% minimum for EB. The way I understand, and the NJ unemployment explained it to me, I am still eligible for the full benefits and all of the Tiers because I reside in NJ where the TUR has been well above 8.5%. When I called NY they had very vague responses to me saying that they don't do that and then saying "well we used to do that but not anymore". Don't know who to contact to get this worked out.
