Please, please everyone check your states law on EB. I thought I would be getting EB through the end of July and possibly HUB. I was shocked when I read an article saying if PA did not change its laws to a three-year look back, 46,000 people would lose EB by May 20th and another 90,000 after that. Pennsylvanians must fight this. Most state are on a two-year look back, but unemployment (I say this with foot in mouth) has declined so now it is any ones guess whether you will receive EB. You must check with your Department of Labor and Industry to see if they will adopting a 3-year look back and if they are not, you must MARCH ON YOUR CAPITOL. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, IT WILL AFFECT EVERYONE ON UNEMPLOYMENT.

Please look back on a post I wrote today entitled "Pennsylvania will likely lose EB by May 20". This could be you next. Don't wait.

Thanks for listening and please report your findings.

Extended Unemployment Insurance Stopping Short In Several States

Extended unemployment insurance benefits for the long-term jobless are set to expire this month in North Carolina, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Tennessee, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

In Missouri, a Republican state senator who filibustered a bill that would maintain the state's eligibility for EB relented on Tuesday, deciding to focus his anti-spending efforts on federal stimulus measures instead of federal unemployment benefits.

The National Employment Law Project expects Alaska, Alabama, Kentucky, and Virginia to trigger off EB benefits after the Labor Department releases state unemployment rates later this month.


California, Colorado, and Michigan have changed their laws to maintain eligibility for the benefits, according to the Labor Department. (Though Michigan curtailed future state benefits at the same time it changed its EB trigger.)

Thank you for bringing this up. I will create a new thread with this information so it doesn't get missed. Let's pray that something happens with HR 589 within the next two weeks so everyone who has exhausted their Federal tiers will have at least 14 more weeks of this safety net.

Thank you DesperateInRI. We need to work on both, but remember if EB goes by the wayside, it can go to Tier 1 14 weeks, that will help.

DesperateInRI (can I just call you babe?) is correct it is not a tier. Here is what HUB is and some information about it, not sure all is correct though.

HUB is High Unemployment Benefits consisting of 7 additional weeks and comes after your 13 weeks of Extended Benefits. You must have a 8% unemployment rate and it must be 110% of your current unemployment rate, with a look back of 2 years and your state must trigger it ON. Since unemployment is going down (lol) you state can adopt a 3-year look back, but don't bet on it. This is all very confusing right now. But even if you are on Tier 1, Tier 3 comes fast so don't wait to check your state.

Dazed as ever.

I've heard that Senator Christine Tartaglione will introduce a bill to adopt the 3-year look back. I saw this on the DAWU forum, someone had called her office.

So I have just called the Senators office in Philadelphia.The young woman told me to call Amanda in Harrisburg since everyone who would know anything was out to lunch. I called Amanda in Harrisburg and she put me through to speak with Sherry in Harrisburg (717) 787-1141. I explained I wanted to know if the Senator was working on legislation to get Extended Benefits based on a three-year look back. She told me yes they were working on it, they would then have to get some supporters of the bill, it would then get a print #. After that they would vote on it and if they get enough votes, and I think they will if we write/fax/email every PA legislator we can, it will pass and go to the Governor for his signature in short order.. That was right out of the Harrisburg office. So lets get moving on the legislators, names and email, phone #'s. I am so tired, I have to get some sleep now.
Told the young woman Sherry from the Senators Harrisburg office that she would probably be getting some phone calls so start calling. Dazed&Confused
