What happens after my regular unemployment benefits are exhausted?

I recently was awarded unemployment benefits (a total of 26 weeks) and my last check from the Colorado unemployment office will be sometime in June 2010. What happens then? Are there any extensions that I will be able to apply for such as the ones that exist currently?

    According to the CA website, there are no extensions currently available to you. They’re only set up for people who have been unemployed for over a year as of last December. But who knows what will happen next week?

    I have two suggestions:
    1) Check your UI website monthly for updates
    2) Write/email your Senators and Representative monthly to ask what they’re doing about people who can’t find jobs in this economy. That will remind them that we’re out here and know their names so come re-election time…………..

    Yes. Right now, there are three tiers of Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) that are available to residents of Colorado. I ran out of money on my original claim last month, and I have filed for the first tier of EUC.

    Tier I EUC gives claimants an additional 20 weeks of unemployment benefits once they have exhausted their original unemployment claim. If you still don’t have a job after those 20 weeks, there are two more EUC tiers where claimants receive 13 and 14 additional weeks of unemployment benefits respectively. This adds up to 73 (about 19 months) weeks of unemployment benefits that a person could potentially be eligible for.

    There is one thing to keep in mind, however: According to the Colorado Department of Labor Website, no EUC money will be paid after July 31, 2010. This was written back in November or December, so there could be a chance that this date gets extended depending on how the job market looks in a few months.

    I exhausted my original UI claim in January and filed for EUC tier I 3 weeks ago, but I have still not seen any money. It probably takes as long to process your EUC claim as it does to process your original claim, so keep that in mind as well.

    Hope this helps…
