Can I apply for an extension in a different state than the original claim?

Q) Can I apply for an extension in a different state than the original claim?

A) No. You will need to apply for an extension to your unemployment benefits in the sate that issued your original claim.

Applying for Extended Compensation

  1. Contact your state’s Department of Labor. Since laws are different from state to state, the process of applying for an extension will depend on what state you live in.
  2. Fill out all the necessary paperwork.
  3. Wait for an approval to come in the mail.
  4. Continue looking for work.

  1. I have not worked in nine years. I keep getting letters from Michigan Dept of Labor saying they are offering me more unemployment money, You can’t go to their office, it seems to be closed, you can’t talk to anyone on the phone, you just get a recording telling you to go online and appeal to get more benefits.
    I mailed in and emailed in and faxed in fraud reports, I get back a nice letter telling me how to file to get more benefits.
    Now I get a 1099 for $5,500.00 that I am supposed to pay tax on.
    So I sent another fraud report and today I get a letter from them saying I am approved for more benefits and how to appeal their decision and try to get een more benefits.
    I have received no money from them, I asked where they were sending the money, no reply. They have my address to send me info on getting more benefits, so where are they sending the money?
    China? Russia? This is pure insanity.
