Check the list to see if your state is still eligible for Tier 4!

The trigger to advance to Tier 4 is 8.5, so does that mean that once Tier 3 is exhausted that all unemployment benefits are exhausted?

YES If you are already on tier 4 you can finish it out. I know of some people in NY who though they had 99 weeks to help get through xmas, only to find out 2 weeks before xmas they only got 93 weeks.

EUC tiers would be exhausted but if your state has EB (state unemployment 8.0 or above) then you would have a max of 20 more weeks.

getthem, correct me if I'm wrong please. A house is being built next to me and the constant banging is driving me nuts!

If you have not used EB yet then yes I believe it will be there. Basically if your state is 8.5 or above then you get 99 weeks. If its under you get 93.

http://www.labor.state.ny.us/ui/claimantinfo/importantnews.shtm NYS has a benefits calculator but its based on the NY rate of 8.2

None of this new legislation will effect those already on unemployment in Florida including EUC AND EB!! Current unemployment rate for Florida is 11.9%.

These are the official numbers used to determine each State's UE rate for the month and always lag. The BLS figures released today also determine which states are eligible for the Federal Tier 4 extension. Sad

I don't see anything listed but December/January adjustments and the January 2011 state rates. I don't see the new February rates. Oh maybe I am blind.

So...if I'm understanding this correctly, if someone is presently on Tier 3, that individual would complete tier 3 and then not be eligible for Tier 4, due to the unemployment rate falling below 8.5,but would then be eligible for EB?

The figures they use lag. They are using January stats. These figures were released by the BLS today at 10:00 am. February job statistics will be reflected in April's unemployment rates. It is called "fuzzy math", but unfortunately the numbers the US goes by to determine state's eligibility for the existing tiers.

That is correct. However, eligibility for EB varies by state when they fall under the 8.5% trigger. Check with your employment office to see if PA is one of the states that continues EB when Tier 4 is no longer available.

I just got off the phone w/ PA Unemployment Office (1-888-313-7284), and inquired about transitioning from Tier 3 to Tier 4 and if there were any impact that the new BLS #'s that just came out placing PA at 8.2. The gentleman I spoke w/ told me that it will not be a problem and that there is not a trigger factored in to transition from Tier 3 and into Tier 4. He said that a trigger does not factor in until after completing the Tiers 1-4, to move on to EB.
Has anyone else from PA inquired w/ their UC office?

Hi, aloneinpa, here are the Federal Guidelines for eligibility for Tiers 1 - 4:

• Tier I

o 20 weeks of benefits available to all workers

o The same as the previous Tier I (prior to the November extension)

• Tier II

o 14 weeks of benefits available to all workers

o Increases the weeks in the previous Tier II from 13 to 14 weeks of benefits in all states and is no longer tied to the state reaching a specified level of unemployment

• Tier III

o 13 additional weeks of benefits in states with an insured unemployment rate of at least 4 percent or a total unemployment rate of at least 6 percent

o This is the previous Tier II (prior to the November extension)

• Tier IV

o 6 additional weeks of benefits in states with an insured unemployment rate of at least 6 percent or a total unemployment rate of at least 8.5 percent

The employee you spoke to today may have been unaware of the effect that the drop in PA's unemployment rate would have on the transition to Tier 4. You may want to call back tomorrow to give the states time to update their information. When you call back, you should also ask if this drop under the 8.5% trigger will affect eligibility for your state EB program.

Everyone might want to look here about triggers.

And yes, always make two calls to confirm information you get from the state.

Unfortunately ET it doesn't apply to the 99ers because currently there is no Tier-5 in any state. Crying or Very sad If HR 589 passes through the House and Senate in Washington (big if) then it looks like you will get aid. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you at this point but I'm praying that this happens for all 99ers!!

Praying
