    That’s it buddy. The maximum now is 73 weeks so you did good. (I got 79 weeks).
    The 20-week Fed-ED extension ended in May 2012.

    If only! Back in May the 20-week FED-ED extension ended, which reduced everyone’s maximum benefits from 99 to 79 weeks. Depending on when you start Tier 4, you could claim up to 10 weeks (instead of 6 weeks).

    It would be nice if they could, but I don’t think think any government agency (federal or state) takes individual situations into account to make exceptions.

    If you need immediate help, I suggest researching resources and agencies offered by the State of California and in your local community. In other words … charity!

    We still don’t know how Congress will decide on the fiscal cliff yet. There is hope that UI will be extended. But for the long-term unemployed who have collected 99 weeks, I doubt additional tiers will be added to assist them. (Again, it would be nice, but doubtful at this point!)

    At this point no case to plead. Some people got more, some people got less. If I collect until 12/29/12 my total weeks paid will be 73 week.
