Unemployment Update: State Extended Benefit Trigger Notice Effective 4/19…

Latest Trigger Notice for Extended Benefits by state eff 4/19/09. Please note, this is different from the Trigger Notice with Emergency Benefits Trigger by State. That is a different file and we will post that separately….

DOL: Extended Benefits are available to workers who have exhausted regular unemployment insurance benefits during periods of high unemployment. The basic Extended Benefits program provides up to 13 additional weeks of benefits when a State is experiencing high unemployment. Some States have also enacted a voluntary program to pay up to 7 additional weeks (20 weeks maximum) of Extended Benefits during periods of extremely high unemployment.

Updated with corrected links thanks commenter!! Note there is a more recent post with Triggers eff 4/19 now up as well…

PDF here from NELP with guidelines for UE Benefit Extensions

Here is the key information for people needing extended benefits, which may be most of us under the ‘new normal’ PIMCO keeps talking about:

6. Where can workers find out whether their state qualifies for EB under the different “trigger” formulas in order to collect EB after running out of EUC benefits?

On a weekly basis, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides an update of which states have reached the required unemployment level to trigger on to EB.

The most recent notice is summarized in Table 1, and the weekly DOL notice can be found at:
