null What does it mean to “exhaust” state unemployment benefits?

A person “exhausts” state unemployment benefits when he or she either (1) draws all available benefits that could be paid, or (2) reaches the end of the benefit year and is not monetarily eligible for a new benefit year. Also, the individual cannot be eligible to file a claim in any other state.
