Claim balance nearing end but I’ve worked enough during this one to qualify for more. Help?

So I opened my claim in September and ended up working an “as needed” job for 13 straight weeks @ $1K per week before tax, plus 4 weeks this year at roughly that.
However, my claim balance has two and some change payments left on it and I have no job prospects. The claim doesnt expire until September.
Once the balance runs out is there any way of applying that 17 weeks of work to this claim balance? Is it possible to close tbis claim and ooen another based on the new qualifying weeks?
Basically is there anything I can do to free up that money now?

Mind you I’m not asking for free money or charity. This is money I paid in and qualify for. I just need to know my options.

    OP here – also wanted to note that I know extensions are done but that’s not what I’m asking for.
