Illinois Unemployment Extension - EUC08 Tier 5

Currently, there is no Tier 5 EUC08.

If you use up all of your EUC08 unemployment benefits, there is another type of unemployment extension called Federal-State Extended Duration (FED-ED), more commonly referred to as Extended Benefits (EB). You will only qualify for the EB unemployment extension if you have used up all of your regular unemployment benefits and also used up all of your EUC08 unemployment extension.

If you qualify for the EB unemployment extension you will receive additional benefits equal to 20 weeks or 80% of the maximum benefit amount on the original unemployment claim, whichever amount is less.

I received my last unemployment check Dec 14th. Benefits ended on the 4th. I was only paid for one week. I was on unemployment for 1 month last year.(Mid August to Mid September)I went back to work, and was let go in Mid Feb 2010.
I've collected unemployment since Mid Feb, until i exhausted my EUC08 Dec 4th. Do i qualify for an extension?
