Unemployment Benefits?

I am currently receiving unemployment benefits in Illinois. I have found information regarding the Tiers:

Regular state funded UI: 26 weeks

Tier I: 20 weeks

Tier II: 14 weeks

Tier III: 13 weeks

Tier IV: 6 weeks

I am on my 4th Tier of unemployment now, so does that mean when my time is up on this tier, I am completely out? The reason I ask is that I've been seeing so much information about the 99ers, but the chart I found about only adds up to 79 (which is where I am). So should I be planning for the 79 weeks as the chart states, or is there additional benefits that get people up to 99? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Per the UL UI website:

    "1. Who is entitled to Extended Benefits?

    If you have exhausted your rights to Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC08) and are still unemployed, you may be entitled to EB.

    2. How do I file for Extended Benefits?

    Upon exhaustion of your EUC benefits, your EB claim will be established automatically. You do not need to contact your local office. If you have not received notification of your eligibility for EB within three weeks after you exhausted EUC call 800-244-5631.

    3. What will my EB Weekly Benefit Amount be?

    Your EB weekly benefit will be the same as your EUC weekly benefit amount. (Including the $25.00 Federal Additional Compensation).

    4. How many weeks of EB will I receive?

    If you are eligible for EB, you will receive up to 13 weeks of additional benefits."

    If your state has an unemployment website then go there for the most up to date information. Or google these terms

    Unemployment extension 2010 (and then your state)
