Indiana Unemployment Extension - Extended Benefits (EB)

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 Extended Benefits 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 Extended Benefits 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.

How long do I collect unemployment after I start working, because I'll have to work a month before I get paid.

I have exhausted unemployment and all four tiers. I got a letter indicating I needed to come to a Work One office to apply for the (up to) 20 weeks of extended benefits. I have moved out of state, is there any way I could do this over the phone? Driving to Indiana would definitely be an expensive trip for me at this time.

I am receiving extended benefits in Indiana. My home page shows I am only collecting for 7 weeks, but there is enough money in my benefit amount for 19.63 weeks. Why can't I collect the entire amount since it is less than 20 weeks?

This is what my unemployment status is right now. My extended which I thought was longer looks like it's about to run out. Am I eligible for this (FED-ED) or Extended Benefits (EB) mentioned above. I've only been getting $ a week anyway because of child support deduction but I'm currently filing for disability with Keller and Keller but it says I have sixty three dollars left so I'm going to be hurting bad now.
