  • how are youHi!  I was laid off in November from my job of 10 years!  It sucked!  I was going to get on unemployment but was introduced to AMERIPLAN by a cafe mom.  I started this immediately!  I love it!  So, if you're trying to find something and can't I invite you to check out this site: Let me know if you're interested and I'll help you get started!  Good luck and hopefully you won't need unemployment for long!

  • I think they just extended it to 30-some weeks ... not sure.

  • I don't know with all the changes, but the max used to be 26 weeks. With emergency benefits, and all the extensions, theoretically, if you live in a high unemployment state, like FL, you could get it for almost a yr. BUT, it also depends on your work history. It's based on how much you made in the last-I think 3 quarters. So if you didn't make a lot of money, you might not get the full # of weeks.

  • Depends on your state's rules.
