New Fed Unemployment extension? Is this true?

Somebody mentioned it. I exhausted all my fed ed benefits in September so will this new extension affect me? How? I'm in CA

  • OP when you say you exhausted in September, are you saying you used all 99 weeks? If that is so, you will not get any additional UE. An extension does not give benefits past 99 weeks. It allows people to move from initial to tier 1, or tier 1 to tier 2, etc. No one gets benefits beyond 99 weeks as of right now.

  • Not that I know of. In fact, a couple weeks ago my husbands partial benefits ended, after only 6 months. He came off of active duty status and only could find part time work. Good thing he started a new job the Monday after we thought he would get one last round of benefits.

  • It will only be for those who qualify some will get it others will not. You need to contact the UE office and find out.

    Well I have gone back to school so I can hopefully secure a job with a higher degree. I have never relied on unemployment like this in my life but getting laid off was horrible.
