Who wants to lose a job? Nobody wants to lose his or her job. Nevertheless, when a company is having a financial difficulty or you are working in a hazardous environment, then leaving work becomes a reality. When you are receiving unemployment compensation, you will not get a new job immediately and you could end up needing extended unemployment insurance. This is provided when your regular benefits have run out.

You can avail of the extended unemployment compensation when your 26-week unemployment insurance runs out. Extended unemployment compensation begins in four main tiers with distinct starting points. Tier 1 happens immediately after the regular unemployment compensation has run out. You should apply for this that lasts twenty weeks. If you still have no work after Tier 1, you can qualify for Tier 2 which last for fourteen weeks.

Tier 3 lasts for thirteen weeks and Tier 4, the final stage varies in duration because it is based on the amount the state and the federal government could pay. If your state is experiencing high unemployment, Tier 4 can offer benefits that will last for more than a year. You can apply for extended unemployment compensation as soon as you state’s unemployment office informs you that your regular benefits are coming to an end and you qualify for extended unemployment compensation.
