Section: 43:21-24.27: Emergency unemployment benefits

8. During an emergency unemployment benefit period, an exhaustee who otherwise continues to meet the eligibility requirements for regular benefits pursuant to the provisions of the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq., and who is not eligible for any other unemployment benefits, including benefits provided for by any federal law extending benefits beyond those provided for as regular benefits or extended benefits, may receive weekly emergency unemployment benefits for weeks subsequent to December 29, 2001 in an amount equal to the weekly benefit amount of the exhaustee's most recent regular unemployment benefit claim subject to the provisions of the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq. The maximum emergency unemployment benefits an individual may receive pursuant to sections 7 through 11 of P.L.2002, c.13 (C.43:21-24.26 through C.43:21-24.30) is 10 times the weekly benefit amount that was payable to the individual pursuant to the "unemployment compensation law," R.S.43:21-1 et seq., (including benefits payable to federal civilian employees and ex-service persons or payable under the combined wage program) in the individual's applicable benefit year.
