May 27 Update:  Legislation that would provide an extension of federal extended unemployment benefits, which are set to expire next week, was not approved by the Senate prior to adjourning for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.   The earliest the Senate will act on a measure is June 7, when they reconvene.   In the past, the extensions have been retroactive, so, hopefully, that will be the case this time.

As of now, the measure is a scaled down version that extends filing deadlines through November and does not include the COBRA subsidy.

In addition, the legislation does not include a Tier 5 unemployment extension that would provide additional weeks of unemployment for the 99ers – the unemployed workers who have exhausted all unemployment benefits.

April 15 Update: Congress has passed a 60 day extension of federal extended unemployment benefits, which President Obama has signed. This extension is retroactive to April 5, however it does not provide additional weeks of coverage for those who have run out of all state and federal benefits.

Eligibility depends on your tier of benefits plus state guidelines, so check with your State Unemployment Office web site for details on who qualifies and when and how benefits will be paid.
