Did The Senate Pass The Tier 5 Unemployment Extension?

Unemployment Insurance is crucial and is the lifeline for the long-term unemployed.  Tier 5 is vital and is needed without delay to avoid immediate homelessness for the middle-class. There are NO jobs and we need help! “Overqualified, under qualified” -- this is what I’ve heard over the past year during interviews due to my 4 year college education.

Entertaining Info:
The IRS seized my 2009 tax refund due to outstanding college loans I was unable to pay while on unemployment. Did the IRS expect me to pay $600.00 a month for school loans when I was receiving $1000.00 monthly in unemployment benefits?

I would like to know if there will be a tier 5 extension for the people who have exhausted all their unemployment benefits. These people need help now! Through no fault of their own they have not been able to find work in california and are now homeless or close to it. How can the senate take another vacation without any regard to the people who are desperate to feed and keep a roof over their head and their families?

You have no basis for that answer what so ever.  First they are going to make another extension for those people who have yet to exhaust their tiers when they get back from their 2 week break,  then the long term unemployed will be worked on whether they add new weeks to the current tier 4 to make it easier on states computers systems or add another tier 5 in general.  They vote for the extension on April 12 at 5:30 if this extension does not get approved which I do not see why it wont then there will be no tier 5 or added weeks.

People who have run out of extended unemployment are now robbing banks.  I live in Philadelphia and each day they report at least 4 or 5 bank robberies on the news on a daily basis.  Just conduct a google search-it is all there on-line.  It is getting really really bad out there.  The homeless population in Philadelphia is through the roof and it is getting worse by the day.

No they havent.Instead on Thursday the 25th they spent the whole day with Obama on his pet project (health care) which aired on tv. If you watched it you would realize why they cannot get anything done in a timely manner. Obama told the group of buffoons that we will get this done today. NOT! If we all havent starved to death by November we can get this inefficient clowns out of office. It was a good start with Scott Brown in Massachusetts. Lets keep it going.New people that are in tune with reality. We all need the extra time to get this help and plan and prepare for the inevitable depression looming on the horizon. Hell maybe it's here now.

This is why it is so important for the "99ers" to keep up the bi-weekly reporting to Marvin. Congress uses these reports for most of their statistics and deciding who is where on the Unemployment Ladder. SO PLEASE, KEEP REPORTING1

Tier 5 will happen in September as we get closer to election time. No one wants to look bad during election time.

No, the 5th extension was not approved, it's currently frozen and they are saying that it will probably not get approved.

Is the 5th tier EUC , the long term extension for up to one year????

I'm 24 and right now I'm on 3rd tier EUC my benefits are set to run out on July 31, 2010
I lost my job a year ago. I was in the medical field and had been working in the field for 6 years ether for a private practice doing clerical or minor clinical work , so I decided to go back to college to get my CMA which is a Certified Medical Assistant . I have one more year left before I graduate so I really hope they pass that bill.

To everyone seeking a Tier 5: I read yesterday (March 5th 2010) a few people have contacted Reids office and they were all told that Reid is working on a Tier 5 extension but they don`t know when it will go to congress. Someone else called Pelosi`s office and they were told there is no more extensions (tier 5) because not enough people are complaining about it.... EMAIL or CALL your state senators, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and demand a Tier 5 extension. I have contacted them all this week v
