depends where you live, here they will take the app online but you have to have a follow up phone call, they also wont always send you a letter about additional benefits. the best thing to do is call in when yours runs out. Most states have a FAQ section regarding the extensions with the directions and requirements for each, and there are different extensions in different states depending on the rate of unemployment.

It varies by state. In Illinois the extension is automatic, though there was a one-week lag.
