I apologize if this is a duplicate post - WWAY is very slow approving posts - especially on busy news days as they only have a certain number of people allowed to approve posts.
Take a look at this:

And in particular:
"Federal emergency jobless benefits also will stop July 1, when the law takes effect and applies to people making jobless claims. The U.S. Department of Labor said the decision by North Carolina to refuse the extra year of benefits after six months will affect 170,000 people and hold back $780 million in weekly benefits."

It's MY understanding that anyone who is within the first 26 week period continues collecting their current rate and are not affected.
If you file after July 1 (like DAK would if it closes)
You will have LESS than 20 weeks and your benefit will be maxed at $350/week
On July 1 ALL extended benefits stop for anyone unemployed more than 26 weeks previously.

Am I wrong about that?
