I got a seasonal job in late May 2012 and my benefit year ended June 2012. At the time I started the job, I was just finishing my first extension – I think I had two weeks left.
On June 17 I got laid off and I filed to re-open my claim that day. Two days later, my layoff was cancelled. So although I got claim forms from my re-opened claim, I did not submit because I was working again.
I got laid off for real on August 13. I filed a new claim since my original benefit year had ended. I got an award letter thereafter listing 0′s in every category, but I also got biweekly claim forms, which I filled out and submitted. In response to those, I got a notice that says “No benefits are available for your claim at this time…you have received all benefits payable on your claim. You may qualify for extended benefits…” (there’s other verbiage but you get the gist)
I assume this means EDD is sending the info to the feds so I can be restarted on the extensions for my prior claim. It’s been a week since my last correspondence from EDD and the automated system is telling me no recent payments have been made. Does anyone see any reason, from the facts I’ve given here, that I would NOT be put back on the extension track? Anyone know how long this process should take? Technically I should be filing another biweekly claim form this week but I haven’t gotten one yet. Does this sound normal?
