    varies by state. This is what happened in 2010:

    Retroactive Payments

    Extended benefit programs operate differently in each state. The North Carolina Employment Security Commission advises workers that benefits will be paid retroactively for weeks after a certain date and that eligible workers should continue to file weekly extended benefit claims. Tennessee's General Assembly retroactively reinstated its extended benefit program for workers who remain unemployed and makes retroactive payments to some workers who have returned to work, but were unemployed during weeks covered by the retroactive benefits. Rhode Island, however, does not pay retroactive benefits to workers who have returned to work.

    Continue to file claims if your state allows you to do so.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

        What are you doing about the homeless in your community right now tonight?  Having all the homeless over for a New Years Eve party?  Do you send your table scraps over to Africa each day?  

        The NRA is the Gun Manufacturer Lobby. Nothing more. Their pontification about the second amendment is nothing more than their ad jingle. They're the domestic version of the Military Industrial Complex.

              Now my clients who I serve daily in my programs are another story.

                gave you to continue filing claims if your state allows you to do so to your clients. I do expect there will be a retroactive UI extension just as there was in 2010.

                  Options. It is after all, our jobs to be informed about such things.

                  That being said, many of them still do fall through the cracks anyway and many more will if UI is not extended, despite our best efforts.
