I have a question concerning EUC with 2 UC claims. I was originally laid off at the end of December 2009. I opened a 26 week UC claim on Jan 1, 2010 with AB date Jan 1, 2011. My employer called me back periodically in 2010 for work. I did exhaust my 26 week UC claim and even part of Tier 1 on this claim in 2010. On my AB date Jan 1, 2011 I had earned enough income from my callbacks in 2010 that a new 26 week UC claim was opened on Jan 1, 2011 with AB date Jan 1, 2012. I collected 26 weeks on this UC claim and then they moved me back to my prior claim ... the middle of my Tier 1 EUC claim from 2010. I am currently in Tier 2 on this same prior claim and this will exhaust week ending Dec. 31, 2011. If the unemployment extension is not passed or if it does am I eligible to claim EUC from the 2nd claim at any point. Is the 99 week max per claim or per individual. Just thought Id see if I could get some concrete answers here before I sit on hold for 3 hours with UC.

Thank you in advance and I am praying for all of us and believe a Tier 5 is long overdue and needs to pass along with extensions. Until they truly focus on jobs and the housing sector which I worked in before this mess this country will never recover and we should not be penalized for not being able to find work that does not exist.

The 2 claims aren't as tricky as you think. If you exhausted both claims 26 week filing, your are then moved to the Tiers. The Tiers, unfortunately only exist when federally extended. Some states offer HUP-EB, which kicks in when a state has a higher unemployment rate, say 8%, some are lower, some are higher. I don't see your state listed with your name so I cannot look it up.

That being said, some states HUP-EB is dependent on federal funds, so again the extension has to be passed. There are several states that don't use the federal funding for HUP-EB.

So, my best advice to you is to call your UC Service Center and ask the question directly to a Rep. They are really the only ones who can answer the specifics I laid out with regards to your state's rules, funding and trigger rates. Sorry I couldn't be more concrete, but it really is best for all members to stay in contact with their UC Reps. I know it's hard, but every state is different, laws change constantly regarding UC, and much of our information is obtained from their websites which may not automatically update triggers and changes.
