When Will Massachusetts Benefits Extension Checks Be Sent Out?

I left the unemployment specialist at the Career Center in Lowell, approx. 15 minutes ago. She has worked there for over twenty-five years. I was told that they received an email this morning that stated checks should be going out next week but could possibly be delayed until the week after. I would not count on the checks being sent out at the beginning of next week if they do go out. This of course probably pertains to the folks that have been calling in regularly awaiting the extension to go through. If you have not been calling I'd suggest getting to the unemployment office and reopening you're claim. I'm frustrated, aggravated and very angry but it does not do us well to let it continue to rent space in our heads. Stress is not good for the human body, too much that is. I'm in a very tough situation myself but there is nothing we can do but wait. Stick together folks and vote Scott Brown out of office the next time around. It's the only way we get our voice heard. He made a political statement at our expense. Not at the for-igen aides expense that we give so much of. There are other areas they could have made a statement. They stuck it to us hoping to get votes in the future for watching the budget. Bull! Stick it to someone other that the American Worker.

I receive my checks via direct deposit.  As of Sunday, Aug 1st, I have not received a check.

I reopened my extension last Weds, July 28th.   

The Labor and Workforce Development Website (see link below) states the following:
www.mass.gov

Under this new legislation signed by the President on July 22, 2010, Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) and Extended Benefits (EB) will be available through December 1, 2010 with applicable phase-out periods.

All claimants whose weekly claims certifications are up-to-date will be issued retroactive you.I. Extension Benefits payments beginning this Saturday, July 31st. By Wednesday, August 4th, 50,000 payments will have been issued. For the remaining claimants, we will continue our outreach by telephone and mailings to assist them in updating their claims and getting their payments processed. Claimants should be aware that it may take several days for paper checks to be received or financial institutions to process direct deposits.

My last check issue by Unemployment Insurance was in October of 2010 because I have exausted my benefits and up to this date I am still unemployed with no other way of income. My question is: Am I elegible for the last extension granted by the Federal Government?
