The problem I am having is how could I collect unemployment benefits from my 1/8/2012 claim and have worked a job in the same time period in order to qualify for a new claim? Doesn’t make sense. I was collecting benefits from that claim until September of 2012. If and when I waited until my claim year was up in January of 2013, they would have only went up until September of 2012 to calculate my base period. I was collecting unemployment all that time.
I noticed on the notice that they had checked off the box saying that This Determination Does Not Affect Your Claim For Extended Benefits.
This also does not make sense because the EDD told me that I did not qualify for extended benefits after I collected the 14 weeks on my initial filing.
On my initial claim dated 1/8/2012 and in my award letter, they only calculated my benefits up through September of 2011. I worked and earned money from October 2011 thru January of 2012, when I filed the claim. Why don’t they take into consideration those months and why can’t I file a claim from those earnings, since they were not taken into consideration when I originally filed or even now that I tried to refile again? Its like those are just lost earnings. The earnings were as much if not more than the earnings where I received benefits upon initially filing on 1/8/2012. Doesn’t make any sense and forget trying to call them to find out anything.
