That is so what I am. So now I will owe AR all of the unemployment benefit from August 10, 2009, through the end of the year. TN finally called today (day 12 of the filing) and when asked about the delay said, "Well, we are behind." Apparently, after the initial 26 weeks of state unemployment I should have been forced to file in TN before the Federal EUC kicked in. By the way, have I mentioned that TN is $200 less a week than AR? Yeah, so um, SCREWED, that is what I am.
When I asked when would the check be sent she said, "In 6 to 8 weeks." I said something about how unfair it was to require the payback to AR and for TN to not pick up now in 2010 she said, "Who said life is fair." I kid you not!! I told her I didn't like her attitude and I wanted to speak to someone higher up (which she did not let me do). So now I am totally and officially losing everything and still have no job prospects.
Then of course the TN worker blaimed the federal government for the rules governing the EUC funds. The sad thing is I have been in touch with AR personally all year last year and not until January 4, 2010 did they say anything about my needing to apply for TN unemployment.
