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.
