A Guide to Your Rights &
Responsibilities When Claiming Unemployment Benefits in
Qualifying For a
Second Benefit Year
If you receive any unemployment benefits during
the course of a Benefit Year, and that Benefit Year has expired or is about to
expire, benefits cannot be paid in a second Benefit Year unless the following
eligibility conditions have been satisfied:
You have sufficient wage credits in
your new Base Period to establish a new Weekly Benefit Rate.
Since establishing your first
Benefit Year, you have returned to work and been paid wages of $300 or
five times the Weekly Benefit Rate established for your second Benefit
Year (whichever is greater).
Only wages earned from an employer that
is subject to Unemployment Insurance law (any state or federal law) can
be considered as meeting the second Benefit Year requirement.
If there is any doubt that you have met this
requirement, contact the Tele-Benefits Line.
