Six months is the norm but you may be apply for an extension for 9 months of benefits.
usually about 6 months over a one year period. i heard some states offer an extension.
The limit is 6 months.
Depends what state you are in - I'm in California and its 6 months, but you can get it extended for another 6 months if you can prove you've actively been looking for work.
Over here in NJ the normal limit is 26 weeks but there is currently an extension of 13 weeks!

CA is 18 months with extensions I hope. Or else it's 12 months. Or else its 8 months. It depends on if you qualify for all the extensions. Most people do. If you make a LOT you might not qualify for the extensions.

For those already on unemployment: You ALL need to contact your state's Unemployment.commission or whatever place you contacted to get the unemployment in the first place. Each state is different so they would know the correct answer.Those not on unemployment: Your state probably has an Employment/Unemployment Office of some type and that is who you should contact. Usually some .gov website.
