The two-month package preserves a $1,500 payroll tax cut for the middle class and extends unemployment benefits that were set to expire at the end of the year, preventing an abrupt cutoff for nearly 2 million long-term jobless in January alone. The bill also extends the "doc fix," a stopgap that prevents Medicare reimbursement rates for doctors from being automatically slashed.

But the bill also marks the beginning of the end for a maximum limit of 99 weeks of unemployment insurance. Although the deal reauthorizes federal unemployment programs, it does not make a change needed to prevent the loss of 20 weeks of benefits in most states over the course of 2012. The reduction in benefits represents Democrats' quiet embrace of part of the GOP's proposed reforms to the unemployment insurance system.

"We couldn't get it done otherwise," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on the matter during a press conference.

not quite sure what this means, except maybe the tier 3 and 4 cutoff (8.5 percent 3 month average??)....

howver after gaining the national spotlight, maybe thia can now be readjusted in January...

yes we ALL know the percentage figures are inacurate...

Everyone is cheering that the UE numbers are going down. However that is in good part due to holiday jobs come late Jan the UE numbers will rise yet again. Congress needs to look at the UE numbers as a whole even the 99ers.

it is possible that with the cut of 20 weeks that is going into effect, that congress could pass hr 589 and give everyone (99ers inc) 14 weeks extra....(yes this would be 20-14wks or 6 weeks less for some).

just a thought.....

the occupy wall street people are being given credit by the media for forcing the country to look at income disparity this time around, so who knows....

The EDD's website in CA states that we are still given the full 99 weeks. The Fed-Ed tier is included and the filing deadline for this is on or before March 4, 2012...

The following is straight from the EDD's website~

"It also extends the filing and payment dates for those who are currently collecting benefits on the separate extension known as the FED-ED here in California. The maximum total weeks of benefits claimants may qualify for remains up to 99 weeks."

Because the stand-off with Congress went right down to the wire on Friday, and the President probably hadn't signed it by the time the UE offices closed for the holiday weekend, I'm sure nothing has been updated. It will probably take these offices awhile, it isn't clear how they will cut the 20 weeks, and this was only a 2 month extension. The unemployed will be in limbo until at least spring!

So, if you are scheduled to begin the Fed Ed Tier on the week of March 3rd, do you start it as of what is stating now or not?
