I received a Notice of Determination of Invalid Claim, Section 1277. Then a week later I received a Notice of Unemployment Insurance Award Letter. But I have not been back to work since I filed my parent claim, and the wages I earned where prior to filing of my parent claim. I’m confused as to how I qualified for the new claim. Some of the EDD Reps have said I still need to have went back to work and other reps say I didn’t have to go back under section 1277 3. Using Disability Insurance or Workers’ Compensation
Disability Insurance (DI) and Workers’ Compensation (WC) payments, including benefits paid in or through another state or by the federal government, may be used to satisfy the requirements of Section 1277 under either of the following conditions:
If the claimant was not paid any benefits on the prior claim, and was disabled and entitled to receive either DI or WC to compensate for wage loss, the claimant may use the amount of DI or WC paid to satisfy the earnings requirement;
My questions is do you have to still satisfied the “some work” requirement in order to clear the lag test and make the claim valid?
