New York Unemployment Benefits Extension
Unemployed claimants reaching the end of their claim may be wondering, How can I extend unemployment benefits? as standard payments end after a maximum of 26 weeks. Unemployment extensions in New York are only available during certain times and under specific circumstances. Federal unemployment extensions provide additional periods of benefits payments during times of unusually high unemployment.
Claimants who depleted their unemployment benefits have conditions they must meet before establishing a new claim. They must gain new employment (and be laid off through no fault of their own), earn 10 times the benefit rate, and they can only file a new claim once the benefit year in which they collected has ended. The same provisions are required for those denied eligibility due to resignation, termination or refusal of new work opportunities.
