Can I apply for an Unemployment Benefit extension? How do I do that?

Q) I recently applied for unemployment and have been receiving a weekly benefit amount as long as I submit 2 places I applied for a job position. I do everything online, this week would not allow me to put my 2 locations in. Is it possible I have exhausted my benefits due me? If so can I apply for an extension? If so how do I do that?

A) You may have exhausted your benefits. You need to call your unemployment office to verify.  In some states you can apply for an extension of your unemployment insurance benefits online. Some states will send you a letter informing you that your benefits have been exhausted and an extension is available. However as you certify going forward your benefits will be reduced to a new rate during the extension period. If you have not received an extension notification letter, you will need to report to your local unemployment office and apply for your extension if it is available.

  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.
