This is a very important factor in urging Congress to pass HR 589.....

Good info and great point about HR589!

nothing on the raleigh news today...even on wral website, the news story has been pushed aside and no one is making any additional comments...i really don't understand why the esc is saying they will have more details, it is up to our state legislature to amend the rules to a 3 year lookback...15 months, i'm so tired...

Tofer it does not sound good. When my state declined accepting the feds money for EB all efforts to draw public attention to the facts were met with silence.

If you want to post the contact info we will send emails as well.

David Clegg still has not made his announcement, after he does some research, as he stated on the local news. I have emailed every name on the NC ESC website. One person emailed me back on Monday and wanted my phone number, but I never heard back.

i was going to switch my posts to the nc only board but i understand this has caught the attention of others...nc is ending the eb program and we are fighting to stop this..we are still at 9.7% unemployment

i have worked a "generic" form letter stating our concern for nc...i will attach it below if anyone would like to use or tweak it...i am working up a list of govt contacts...some don't have direct emails, so it is a website you have to go thru to send the email, that is causing me some agnst...i will post it as soon as i list the local tv station contact info...let me know how the note sounds below...i tried to make it to the point and respectful...


Dear xxxxxxxx,

I am writing this note on behalf of the unemployed citizens of North Carolina.

This past week, the notice has been publicized regarding the ending of Extended Benefits for North Carolina's unemployed. I have researched this thoroughly and understand the formula used by states to assess eligibility. The original formula from the Federal Government said that states were to use a 2 year lookback rule. Based on this 2 year lookback rule, North Carolina no longer qualifies for the EB program.

However, the Federal Government has changed the rule to a 3 year lookback. Under a 3 year lookback, North Carolina would now be eligible for the EB program. The Federal government has left it up to the states to make the decision on rather they should adopt the new change to 3 years. North Carolina’s General Assembly has so far chosen not to adopt this change or to ignore it all together..

I understand that other states also have chosen not to adopt the new rule simply out of fiscal concern, as the money for this program would eventually have to be paid back to the Federal government. However, at a 9.7% unemployment rate, many of your North Carolina citizens are struggling day to day. We are all concerned about fiscal responsibility, and are not looking for a handout, but support, in these difficult times until we can get back on our feet. I would like to ask for your support in helping to persuade the State of North Carolina in adopting the 3 year lookback rule. Thus, reestablishing the Extended Benefit program in North Carolina.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

here is the contact information i've gathered so far...it covers the governor, state legislature, our us senators, our us representatives and our employment security commissioner...i'm going to try to focus on the state levels...i worry that our us representatives may be out of the loop with what our general assembly is doing...i'm glad to hear that david clegg's office is pushing for a change...the email addresses for the general assembly are general mailboxes since there are so many people...but i did find the email for the "head" of the senate and house for nc legislature...i've included phone numbers if i could find them as 'mya11' suggested that a phone call would be more beneficial...still working on some news stations and newspaper contacts...it may be beyond their control or their determination to report on this but it will get their attention...i hope this at least shows support that all of us have for each other...i'm still 3 months away from eb but worry what effect this will have on nc and many of my friends and neighbors...i'm sorry that the below list is lengthy...i'll be glad to give out my email if anyone wants this in word format...thanks...

Extended Unemployment Insurance Stopping Short In Several States

Extended Unemployment Insurance Stopping Short In Several States



"Extended unemployment insurance benefits for the long-term jobless
are set to expire this month in North Carolina, Wisconsin, Indiana, and
Tennessee, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Unless state lawmakers take action, laid off workers in those states
will no longer receive benefits under the federal Extended Benefits
program as of April 16."

So, the 99ers are working towards additional weeks and these states aren't bothering to take the existing weeks? More people need to know about this. You're right, keepthefaith, there need to be more advocates.

Exactly. There is a quick fix available to the states, changing to a three year lookback, which will allow them to continue EB payments.

Good morning. Glad to see this topic being addressed I hope this gets resolved quickly for folks. Why the states didn't opt for the quick fix early on to prevent it I don't know. Sometimes I think they like to see if dropping people off for a few weeks will help get the ue numbers down bad tactic but time and time again I see it happening. Last summer is an example.
