My claim for 6-12 to 6-13 is now over and I received the all confusing 1277 form yesterday. I’ve read everything on the EDD website, as well as this one regarding the 1277. I understand that new claims cannot be filed back-to-back, that I did not pass the lag test (no wages and no work for the last year), but that federal extensions are not affected.
What does the date on the form mean? Does that mean that I can file a new claim at that time based on Q1 and Q2 wages from the employer that laid me off?? At some point, the remaining federal tiers will kick back in, and THEN I can file a new claim based on OLD wages? If so, this is in direct contradiction to two separate instances in which 1)I was told by EDD on the telephone a new 26 week claim would kick in based on wages from 2012, and 2)what a response via email from EDD told me to do-file a new claim maually even though I didn’t work though it was apparently already done by EDD since the 1277 was issued.
