This map is very outdated – I don’t think very many states still have 26 weeks of UI – for example, NJ cut back to 15 weeks last year and I don’t even know if they have that many today. When do you plan on updating it?
NJ has never deviated from paying the maximum of 26 weeks benefits if the base period earnings warrant. If you got a 15-week claim in NJ, then you didn’t work enough to support a better claim.
NJ will pay anywhere between 1 and 26 weeks – generally 1 week of benefits for each week of wages in the base period, up to a maximum of 26. A “week” in NJ is defined as any week in which you earn at least $168.
Most states still pay 26 weeks. MT pays 28 weeks. MA pays 30 weeks. Southern coastal states like FL, NC, GA have cut weeks of benefits dramatically down to about 12-14. AR, MO, MI, SC are at 20 weeks. KS at 16. But the rest of the country still pays 26.
I have exhausted my regular U.I. benefits in Nevada, are there any extended benefits i can get? And if so, how do I go about to do it.
No extended benefits. Congress discontinued the program three years ago.
