We have heard the vote, but we are now waiting to see what the response for Texas will be. Are there any questions you would like us to ask on your behalf while we are in talks with the UI division of TWC?

Here is the most recent information we have acquired:

    I would like to know: will they notify us about the extension amount by email or snail mail, or will it show online? Will there be a delay in receiving benefits and if so how long of a delay? Do we need to re-request what we already requested last Sunday? Thank you.

    This might be helpful for Sharringt0n and Jeffrey. I received notice by postal mail that I have been approed for ECU bebefits. I have been told to come to a mandatory reemployment/eligibility assessment meeting for this Friday. We will see what happens after this.

    Good Afternoon. I requested payment this Monday for two weeks. The automated system told me this will be my last payment and that I would need to call this week to make another claim to possibly continue to receive benefits. I was wondering do I need to do so when I had already completed this step.

    Hello everyone. I haven’t received any letter to report. I filed this past Sunday 12-30-12 and received my benefits posted today in my account. Wasn’t sure I’d get it since the time before when I requested the benefits, it said that would be my last. Just so thankful !

    I’m sure it will take some time to sort all of this out since the vote just happened. It would be helpful just to know where to keep checking for any updated information. On this website or where? Thanks.

    Hello everyone, Susan Wade here. I too received a letter from TWC stating I had exhausted all available UI benefits. I would like to know if this is only on the state level and if there are benefits available federally? Should we continue to request benefits?

    Good luck to all of those with interviews. I was approved for benefits extension. I have to report to the UI meeting on Friday at 9am. My letter had told me on the 19th to call that week to report my earnings for the new term, but I had just reported on the 18th. It wouldn’t allow me to report again. Today when I reported for my regular next reporting period, it gave me the same thing others have reported that this was my last check for the term, etc (even though I already received my approved letter, I don’t know if it’s just because it’s easier that way through Teleserv or what). I guess I will see some of you in person on Friday! Happy New Year all!

    Hi all sorry I haven’t been here in the last couple of weeks I had an interview in Round Rock on the 20th, I am calling back about it today to see if I get a working interview. Last week my internet was cut off and I really could not go very far because of gas. I hope the new year brings more opportunity for all of us. With Obama Care going into effect I am really thinking more people will be on the unemployment lines and with the UI benefits going away, maybe,there will be a lot of people on the street or committing suicide. Well if that’s what the American people want that’s what we got. Small business being crushed by taxes and big business also being taxed out of existence. Oh well that’s my opinion.

    Thank you so much for the info. I have not received any letter requesting me to come in for any meeting but looking into my available benefits remaining I was approved for extended benefits. I did an online interview last weekend for a potential job at Interview Stream and hoping to hear something back from them soon for a face to face interview. Fingers crossed.
    Happy New Year All!!!

    It’s true if I qualify for extended benefits if I have maxxed out my regular 26 weeks of unemployment, and I’m still unemployed?

    I know not every state is authorized to extend jobless benefits. This month is my last month in Unemployment Benefits.
    Thanks.
