Question about Federal Emergency Unemployment Benefits

I had enough weeks worked to get state unemployment benefits, but just got turned down for a Federal Tier I extension because I didn't have 20 weeks in a "base year."

I worked more than 20 weeks total, which qualified me the first time, but because my time worked straddled the end of one calendar year and the beginning of the next (2012 into 2013) they turned me down.

Do I have a chance of winning on appeal?

2. 22 weeks

 

from November 11th 2012 through April 12th, 2013.

According the State, I should have gotten it under Alternative Base Year calculation #2, which is from July 1st 2013 until last day worked.

3. Ask if they have an alternative base year

many state programs have alternative methods to compute a base year for people that do not met the standard base year. Perhaps the same applies to Federal benefits.

Good luck.
