6 or 16 weeks of Tier IV?

Post by unemployedinsc on Wed Apr 25, 2012 9:26 am

My husband will exhaust Tier 3 EUC on May 12th, EB ended here in SC on 4/17, will he receive the 16 weeks of Tier 4?

Thanks for the reply, but the article you quoted says this,

"If a state triggers off Extended Benefits/Fed-Ed between now and June, people in that state can get up to 10 weeks added to Tier 4 benefits. These people will still lose up to 20 weeks of round five benefits, but they can get up to 16 weeks of Tier 4 benefits instead of just six (as long as their total benefits do not exceed 99 weeks)."

We are not longer having EB here in SC as of April 7th.

-- Tier 1: Starting in September, Tier 1 is reduced from a maximum of 20 weeks to 14, but remains available in all states regardless of their unemployment rate.

-- Tier 2: Remains at 14 weeks, but starting in June is available only in states with an unemployment rate of at least 6 percent. Today it is available in all states.

-- Tier 3: Starting in September, Tier 3 is reduced to nine from 13 weeks and the trigger rate rises to 7 percent from 6 percent.

-- Tier 4: The trigger rate rises to 9 percent from 8.5 percent in June. In September, the duration of benefits rises to 10 weeks from six today. (Some people will actually qualify for up to 16 weeks under Tier 4, which I will explain in a minute.)

Also, in June the trigger for Tier 4 goes up to 9% from 8.5%. Right now, SC is at 8.9%.

He is running out of tier III on may 12th, so he should make it before it goes up to 9% in June, right?

I assume that everyone eligible for Tier 4 will get the 6 weeks, the extension is very confusing. You should be receiving notification from the unemployment office because there are new work search requirements that take effect as well. In the past, there have been times that benefits have cut off. You should double check with your state's unemployment office. The 16 weeks does not go into effect until September, and then it will be decided on a state's prior month's unemployment rate.

Just found this, so it looks good so far, guess we wont knww for sure til mid-may, thanks for your input!

Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Tiers Through May 2012

Tier 1: 20 weeks
Tier 2: 14 weeks
Tier 3: 13 weeks if the state unemployment rate is 6% or higher
Tier 4: 6 weeks if the state unemployment rate is 8.5% or higher unless state doesn't have EB, then 16 weeks

My question is this --- and I know I'm looking at months ahead, but what happens in December when ALL tiers will expire and cease? As of April, CA unemployment stands at 11%, one of the worst in the nation.

CA at 11%... pardon my French but if I were you I'd be setting my SOB sails for better waters!

These are new times and one needs to adapt.

Hi, carlch! Good question, I think we are the only ones who are looking ahead and know that things are not get better AND with people receiving less weeks of benefits, there will be less demand for goods and services.

Unemployment will return to only the original weeks of EUC, no more federal or state extensions. Several states have cut back their original weeks from 26 to 20! What will happen will be continued uphill fights for extensions of original extensions and the Great Depression 3. We who have been hit the hardest, losing our jobs at the beginning of this current depression will be totally forgotten, no matter who the president is at that time or who controls the House and Senate.

Sorry to sound so pessimistic, it is just my opinion, but I don't see the economy picking up and it is only going to get worse.

Desperate, I'm grateful to you for keeping this site alive.

Your post is right on and factual. I do look ahead and as an "older" female worker, I know the odds. I've always felt (since 2010) that it would be uphill for additional weeks. Back then I was communicating with some of Pelosi's staff here in the bay area and I sensed that weeks would eventually be cut. (I was right!)

I agree --- it will get worse most likely after the election. I see marginal economic growth in some sectors but for the most part, I feel we are in a fragile or false recovery. The "employed" that were NOT affected by the downturn don't have a clue nor do they care about our strugge since unemployment does not affect them. I saw this first hand while working in the temporary assignment I held last year. [b] Desperate, you are not pessimistic but in reality.
