Question by : Will there be a tier 4 unemployment extension in Texas?
The following sources claim we are at 8.5% in Texas now which should qualify Texas for Tier 4 unemployment benefits.
“The Texas and national unemployment rate stands at 8.5 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively.” http://sanantonio.bizjournals.com/sanantonio/stories/2010/07/12/daily44.html
“The statewide jobless rates, which is seasonally adjusted, is 8.5 percent, the commission reported.”
“An increasing amount of Americans want to move to Texas, according to a recent survey by a homeowner relocation Web site. Attracted by stable real estate prices and a relatively low unemployment rate of 8.5 percent..”
Answer by Lisa
Some claimants have heard news reports about EUC Tier 4 benefits. In order for a state to qualify for Tier 4 benefits, its unemployment rate must reach 8.5%. The average three-month unemployment rate in Texas is 8.3%.
Should Texas reach 8.5% and become eligible for EUC Tier 4 benefits, we will immediately notify all potentially eligible claimants by mail. The EUC deadline must be extended for Texas to be eligible for Tier 4.
I got this off of the website.
