North Carolina 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.

Can you apply for an unemployment extension if you have started taking college classes since being on unemployment?

I was penalized on my unemployment.when my state unemployment ran out I went to fed.Now my fed is about to run out and I still have not found work.(here in charlotte nc) Someone is lying about job opportunities because NO ONE IS HIREING. The state says because I was disqualified I am in inelegable for state benifits. Is'nt the extentions coming from the fed government.I am 45yrs old and believe it or not my age is shund appond.What can we do but pray for a tier 5. Believe me when I say, I want to work. My bills average 1,000 a month and thats with a roomate looking at me sideways over my job situations.What can we do? If someone is surely hireing I will go, but paper for resumes,gas, and bills are making me think real hard about this next election.If you have any positve feedback please feel free to comment. NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS PLEASE!

The company I worked for closed on June 1st. I have been on unemployment since. I have applied to over 100 companies and have heard from only 3 and they said I`m over qualified for the supervisor position they were advertising. I am 51 years old and hate not working.
My unemployment runs out in 4 weeks. Can I file for an extension from North Carolina? How soon should I fill something out to get the possible extension??? I`m trying hard to find a job, I`m not sitting around drawing a check, but every job I apply for, so are 500 to 900 other applicants.
