The latest unemployment extension passed in November of 2009 by jason monsour (nv) When are the funds coming for the tier 3 extensions Hi Jason, There really isn’t much out there to explain is there. And quite frankly I’m still confused as to how the latest extension will work. Although I believe the current extension is tier 3 and what was passed in November is a 4th tier .. I think. Since I’m as confused as many may be .. I went looking for an explanation. All I found was an analysis of the problem at the National Employment Law Project (NELP) The current extension expires at the end of the year. So I assume the funds for the next tier won’t become available until Jan, 1.
