Among the ten states in the Upper Midwest region (DOL Region V), eight provide guidance to workers seeking information about the unemployment benefits extension:
Nebraska does not provide any guidance, so I've linked to their general unemployment page.
Missouri offers only this guidance - and a warning:
The Division of Employment Security is in an extremely heavy workload period due to an increase in new claims being filed and the federal government's extension of unemployment benefits. The time it takes to determine eligibility for benefits has increased if you were separated from work for any reason other than a lack of work. The investigation process is currently taking six to eight weeks. Regional Claims Center representatives will be answering calls from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday-Friday.
This is the fifth post in a series of six, providing links to information on how each state is implementing the unemployment benefits extension, signed into law in late November. I've heard from a large number of readers who are frustrated and having trouble accessing their benefits.

The next and final post in this series will cover Region VI (Western).
