So I am on Tier 2 in MA. I then will move to Tier 3. There is no tier 4 in MA, but then there is EB? I am assuming you have to apply for EB. What would disqualify you from getting EB? I know MA is just losing several weeks off of EB due to the unemployment rate going below 8%. Is is hard to apply for it or is it just like getting your initial claim set? Do you get the same amount of money per week as in the Tiers? Would be interested to know what to expect if I get there! Praying I don't need it but afraid I will!!!!!!!!! Neutral

The EB program varies from state to state, based on the unemployment rate. Your EB benefit would be the same amount as you are currently receiving. Rules and regulations regarding work searches also vary by state, and are more strict than the Federal tier system. In most every state (if not all that still have EB in place), you must submit a work search form every week in order to receive payment.

Because MA's unemployment rate dropped below a certain percentage, 7 weeks were eliminated from the program just recently. Please see these threads for more information about state EB, and MA EB, in particular.
