  • I have been on unemployment for 1 year and 5 months now. I am currently on state unemployment in TEXAS I believe it is 16 weeks. I just got a part time job but it is no where what i was making so i am still getting money from my job and unemployment, which is good because I am 5 months pregnant so we need any money we can get.

  • You get federal BEFORE state in Indiana? It's the reverse in CA...but here's the FAQ from your state. 26 weeks, according to the online info.

  • I have no idea, I live in Indiana as well. I just got a job making over 9 dollars an hour and didn't have to put in much effort. It must really depend on what part you are living in.

  • I'm Sorry. We don't live in your state. But DH lost his job 21 months ago. He was going on working there 25 years! Times are tough! Extensions are there. But its Scary. Soon he'll run out.There aren't jobs here. Then we'll have no income and my illness. Good Luck.
