No i think about average. I filed on the 13th and mine updated last friday. I know they say it is in order, but i think some people have cut and dry claims and some are a bit more intense due to the new quarter (IE UIO), or time frame from the last tier. But UIO has had reassuarnce that just about everyones should be done by the 17th. I am sure there will some exceptions but I think thats pretty good for the amount of claims and issues they have had.

I do agree that now may not have been the best time to update their system!!

Glad to hear you are rolling Gonzo!!

I got some of mine

Post  hsd on Fri Jul 17, 2009 1:22 pm

I filed online for I think 4 or 5 weeks, not sure because it didn't let me in again. Got the mail in form, sent that with the weeks I thought I didn't claim yet up to 7/11/2009. Also sent a letter stating my confusion because I got a dd of $1100 + $100, the next day I got a dd of $275 & $25. I called EB & they said the supposed $2916 (which is about 10 weeks, not the 20 of EB) stated as my account balance had nothing to do with EB & was due to UE which has been exhausted since 4/26/2009. Now I got the letter stating that I should continue filing online. I can't get through to UE. When I go online, it lets me file for 6/6/2009. Since I sent in the forms til 7/11, I am thinking I just need to wait so that there is not further confusion. They should have decided on a method & stuck with that. Now they have to cross check everything. PS, I have applied for hundreds of jobs & only got two interviews in over a year. And nothing came of them. I don't sleep well.

Reto weeks and then....

Post  Joanne on Sun Jul 19, 2009 5:03 pm

I am really confused... Hopeing someone can clear this up for me... I have been issued, what seems to be 15 wks retro so far.. I received a notification intially that states I qualified for 50% or 13 wks, then turned around the next day and received a re-determination for 80% or 20 wks... My next date to claim benefits shows as 7/28, and my balance is now showing $580.00....

Once the $580 is gone, is that it.. or will my balance increase again.. I was under the impression once retro was paid we were still able to claim wks until the end of the year..??? I know my balance has changed once already, just wondering if the $580 is it or will there be more added once I claim on the 28th...???

Anyone know??

Thanks.... Question

Nope, once your balance is gone then thats it. EB is available to the end of the year for those who qualify to claim, meaning it can be applied for and claimed till then. That doesnt mean you get payments till the end of the year. Jan 2010 is in essence the "expiration date" for the 3rd tier EB program. The only money you get in this 3rd tier is what has been awarded as credits already. After that, you would need to wait for the state or feds to approve another extension and drag us all through hell again. Mad

That's what I was afraid of... Not that I am not appreciative for the benefits I have received, since I was able to catch up on most bills, however, would be nice to continue receiving until the end of the year... We wait and wait until it comes in, pay all that we have not been able to pay and then..... it's gone and back to figuring out plan B... I have been searching for work seems like forever and it's making me sick to my stomach the stress it is causing.. anyways... thanks for the reply... Good Luck to you.... BTW... I am loving this website!!

UE or EB?

Post  hsd on Mon Jul 20, 2009 11:31 am

I think I've hopelessly confused the issue, I show $2916 as my balance after a payout of 5 weeks EB, so I don't know where they come up with that balance. Shouldn't it be $4125? And I partially did the first 4 weeks online, then filled out the paper form til 7/11. I paid out my bills from what I got, now I'm going to be short on rent since there is an unknown time to wait for paper application. I don't even know how to explain it to anyone via phone. Or is there a tier for the payout on EB? I don't understand if I can also apply online disregarding the fact that I submitted by paper? Whenever I called EB, they said that they couldn't/wouldn't access my info so they couldn't tell me what my balance was. UE calls don't go through to anyone.

The first part of your question, your balance should show remaining credits $2916 AFTER the 5 weeks had been paid from the $4125 amount.

You should be able to claim the retro weeks online on your next date to claim instead of using the paper retro claim form. I believe those were only a precautionary back up measure in case they didnt have the system up and running with the ability to claim retro.

GAWD! I just read about what's happened with your "new benefit year." What an injustice, when you've been so proactive to get help straightening out everyone else's problems and then they put your through that!

I understand the oddball catch-22 that new benefit years can be calculated if you work, and I know that won't happen if the only work you report is contract, but I don't see how they can re-qualify you on just that small amount. Granted new benefit years can be less money, but I thought they followed the same rules as a new claim, that you had to have worked a certain number of quarters and earned so much amount of money, etc. (can't recall the details), so I would be totally surprised if your glitch is nothing more than a glitch, not a legitimate benefit year calculation.

Beyond that, you've taken so much initiative to get this forum going that it only seems just that you should be picked up by some company or organization where you can do similar work (if it interested you on a larger scale) and get paid for it.

Two lessons I see here for all of us:
1) beware of applying for tiny little jobs that are "salaried" as opposed to temp contract (no taxes, not covered under UI, even when reported), and
2) even though this whole thing is aggravating to the max, I see the work you are doing to pull this forum together as useful in future to whatever possible career path you find or make for yourself. And it beats sitting and waiting and panicking!

Thanks for everything.

Thanks Nancy I appreciate your comments. Yeah it sucks seeing everyone finally get things settled and then having that happen with the new benefit year and $87 a week in benefits. I am just glad others were able to get things resolved. I was a GM of a retail center for a national home builder before the housing bubble burst at the end of 2007. Its impossible to think I would ever make near 200k again annually in this state with what I specialize in with sales and sales management. I cant even get a call from walmart or publix to even work midnight shift stocking shelves. Orlando has almost nothing available, either 10,000 people apply for one job or I am considered over-qualified and they think I would just take a low paying job as a temporary fix and then quit after a few weeks. The sad thing is I go into a store, restaurant etc and see these "managers" or people who think they are, and they sit around do jack-shit! Terrible customer service, bad attitudes etc and probably make 40-50k a year. I am quite a bit of charisma and cant understand why I cannot get even an interview with these companies. In the mean time we have to deal with imbeciles about getting benefits from the state, and now they cant even get that right for some of us...... Evil or Very Mad

hi, UIO !!! i, again this morning, heard on State of the Union on CNN, a republican saying something about the possible extension of the Unemployment Benefits, he did not go into much detail but he did say it!

listen, one important question you might be able to answer......let's say they call me for a job and i start working now, i still have about $2.000 left on my account, will they save that amount in case later on i am unemployed again or will i lose that amount? was really curious (and a bit worried about that),,,,,thanks sooo much UIO!

Hey Maggi, if you become employed again then you would have to apply for a new claim if you become unemployed. It would be a brand new process. Then if by chance you were to exhaust the regular claim, you would then be able to get benefits from your remaining 2000 balance if it were still within the EB timeframe. Currently they are looking to extend this but as of now EB will be no more after the end of this year.

Hey UIO, what i meant was that, if EB is finished in December, ...let's say i get a job around now, it is almost mid August, i doubt i would become unemployed again in 3-4 months, that would really be called BAD LUCK...i honestly don't think that would happen, anyway, so in other words, if I keep working, which i hope i would, then those 2,000 will be lost forever, as December is only about 4 months away, see what i am trying to get at????

Currently EB benefits expire the last week of December of this year, HR3404 would extend that till the end of 2010 if passed as currently written. Regardless, if you became unemployed again then you would have to start a new claim before you could pull from the EB account. Thats what is happening with me, I worked for 2 weeks last xmas season as a temp position, on 7/1 i was recertified and put on a brand new claim for $87 a week in benefits for 13 weeks, once those run out soon I will go back onto my EB since you cannot open a new EUC account, I have 3800 in EB which would then bump me back up to the 275 a week like I was before. The way the law is written for EB and EUC is that they cannot be accessed if there is means for payment out of a regular claim, new or old. Of course if for some reason you lost that job you would then have to file a new claim. They arent going to put you right back into EB. Hope that helps ya understand a little.

Probably a flag on your account for some reason. I would suggest calling Josh or Melody whose numbers and extensions you can find in the AWI contacts thread Very Happy

Please let us know if you find out and get it fixed tomorrow and thanks for joining the site bounce
