04 NCAC 24B .0202          Benefit rights of interstate claimants

(a)  If a claimant files a claim against any state, and it is determined by the state that the claimant has benefit wage credits available in the state, then claims shall be filed only against the state as long as benefit wage credits are available in that state. Once benefit wage credits become unavailable in that state, the claimant shall file claims against any other state where benefit wage credits are available.

(b)  For the purposes of this Section, benefit wage credits shall be deemed to be unavailable from another state:

(1)           whenever benefits have been exhausted, terminated, or postponed for an indefinite period, or the entire period in which benefits would otherwise be payable; or

(2)           whenever benefits are affected by the applications of a seasonal restriction.
