Questions & Answers

  1. Steve Hendricks says:

    Hi, I have a question. I have exhausted my EUC benefits tier 3 in Washington state, where my last employer is located. However, before that I worked in Oregon and I dont think I have exhausted those benefits. This would be going back to 2004. I worked for Moore Excavation, Inc from 1996 to 2004. Do benefits go back that far?
