Louisiana Unemployment Extension - EUC08 Tier 4

Tier 4 EUC08: 6 week maximum unemployment extension.

If your Louisiana unemployment benefits run out you might be eligible to receive extended unemployment benefits through one of the state or federal unemployment extension programs.

This federal unemployment extension programs is called Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (Also known as EUC08).

Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08) includes 4 stages, or tiers. Each tier has a different maximum time period for which your unemployment extension will last:

Tier 4 EUC08: 6 week maximum unemployment extension.

If you use up all of your regular unemployment benefits, in most cases you don't have to apply for an unemployment extension because the system automatically applies for you, if you are eligible. It is very important that you keep track of your benefits to make sure you receive your unemployment extension if you are eligible.

If you get close to your unemployment benefits running out, give your unemployment counselor a call to check to see what you have to do in order to get they unemployment extension.

I have been unemployed since OCT 2009. On March 16,2011 I will recive my last ckecks which would be 73 weeks. Do I qualify for an additional unemployment assistance? I am a 64 year old female and I cannot find a job. I am very concern about finding a job. I have been a productive employee since I was 19 years old. Any information would be helpful.
Thanking you in advance,
Emilie

I am a 58 yr old male and have been unemployed since Oct 2009 and my last check has already arrived and I have reached 73 weeks. Does unemployment offer any more tiers (I heard it was up to 99wks). I've been working since I was 13. Any info would be appreciated.
