3 times weekly benefit amount? Empty 3 times weekly benefit amount?

Post by pixma Fri Mar 11, 2011 6:30 pm

I got a letter stating that I am ineligible for a 2nd benefit year because I didn't earn 3 times my weekly benefit amount.

Now, IF that is true, I know that it's procedure to get denied for the 2nd benefit year and just continue with the tiers on the original claim.

BUT, I seem to have made well above that "3 times amount", UNLESS that amount is meant to be PER WEEK, in which case they are right and I did not earn that much.

Does anyone know what that "3 times the weekly benefit amount" is about? Is it supposed to mean the amount I made during the entire first benefit year, per quarter/month/week?

FYI Im moving this to unemployment Q and A, you will get more visibilty there.

From what you are saying you came across you BYE benefit year end. At that point they check to see if you made enough in the base period to qualify for a new claim. If you did not make enough then you go back onto the tiers.

I know. That's exactly what I meant. However, I DID make enough in the base period, UNLESS that 3 times the weekly benefit amount is supposed to mean PER WEEK. That's the only way I would not have made enough.

As far as I know its quarter.
I would contact your office it may be different for your state. Usually you have to call anyways when you get to the BYE. Sounds to me you will just go back on your Tiers.

In PA it is 6 times (6X). One of the qualifications for a new claim is you needed to have earned at least 6x your weekly rate since the beginning of date of your last claim to the beginning date of your next claim. So if some one is getting $200/wk on unemployment, X 6= $1200. He needed to have worked and have earned atleast $1200, (then lost that job through no fault of their own).

Hope I did not confuse you even more. But remember, you should still contact your state UC Center on how they do it. If you still do not understand their explanation, respectfully ask for a supervisor for clarification.

In California, a base period is a year that is divided into four quarters.
