26 weeks of unemployment benefits which can be spaced out over a year (like if you have a temp job for a few weeks and then go back to unemployment). This can be followed by 33 weeks of "Emergency unemployment benefits" and that is followed by about 20? weeks of "Extended Benefits" unemployment benefits. Once you get past the initial regular unemployment benefits, you may need to report your work search efforts in their format every month to continue to get benefits. If you are able to collect COBRA with the ARRA benefits, these get impacted as you switch from regular to emergency to extended. There are also career search services and educational grants and exemptions you can get. Google New York State unemployment assistance to get the website / the right area and look at FAQs. Make sure you read the actual regulations because in my experience, the representatives give you wrong info on the phone. Whether you live in NYS or not makes a difference on how long benefits last and whether you can get more than 2 weeks extended benefits.


The reference to length of time mentioned above can be found in the Glossary in the Related link below about New York.

In May 2008, my job ended and I began receiving full benefits, then a second tier of extension benefits. Once that all exhausted, I called and they told me to just keep filing the weekly certification because it resets itself automatically (they don't do it manually). I do that and I've been receiving it up until July 2009. There's an issue with it now, but once I clear it up, it'll continue. I read that NC unemployment benefits will continue, regardless of how long you'd had it, as long as the state's unemployment rate is above 6.1%. There are breaks, however, in between benefit categories. For example, I had to wait 6 weeks one time for the next set of benefits to begin. Hope this helps.
