Louisiana---can I get benefits for more then a year?
by Mary Morland
Hi..thank u for your help....I'm from Louisiana and have been drawing benefits for one year, next week will be my last week and yet I still can't find a job I have 2 boys to take care of and I was wondering if there is something I can file to get benefits longer then one year...Thank U Sooooooo Much For Your Help.
I honestly don't know. I went to the LA website and could find very little information about extensions and my experience just didn't provide me with much knowledge about how the currently unprecedented extensions work.
I think you should call the state and ask your questions. I know you need to file a new claim, but I don't know if there are additional extensions available to you or if LA is waiving requirements to establish a second benefit year or not.
I know it's hard to get hold of the state nowadays, but they really are the ones you should be asking.
I also noticed LA has Free Legal Service Programs.
They might possibly be able to answer your question.
If you do find the answer .. please come back and let us know by posting a comment. If someone else asks the same question, I could then just point them to your page.
