Massachusetts 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 was let go almost 2 years ago. I went to school to become a paralegal, got my certificate and cannot find a job because I have no experience. I apply for jobs that I am over qualified, under qualified, places that do not even have a listing, there is nothing out there. If tier 5 does not pass we will be evicted, and be living in my car. I have written and spoke with both offices of Kerry and Brown. Kerry is voting for the extension, Brown is not. What will happen to this state when that huge amount of people are desperate for money and food and gifts? The crime rate will sadly rise, so will the homeless rate as well. Not everyone is looking for a free ride. So I applied for SNAP tonight. I am going to need it for our two young children. It's sad. So Now what? Thanks

Hi. I am filing for fuel assistance and they need to see 4 weeks of income from my unemployment. Where do I find those? The govt has just been depositing it into my bank but I need proof NOT from my bank but from the govt. Please advise.

Also, I don't understand how I file or when I file for an extension should I not be employed by the end.....when is my end?

Thanks for all your help!!!!! Cheers, Randy
