    There’s a twist to the story. I just received a time sensitive letter from the EDD telling me that since I filed a UI claim that I had 21 days to register with CalJobs. Now, why in the world would they want me to do that since they already sent me the Determination of Invalid Claim, Section 1277 notice? Besides, I am already registered with CalJobs…which is useless.

      Happens all the time. Computer glitch. Ignore it.

    • Mary Stewart

      They’ve updated CalJobs and there is more info they want you to fill in and it will show them the date that you’ve updated your info. My resume was no longer valid. I was sent a letter to update my resume on it within 21 days, too so I did.

    EDD can’t open a new claim because you did not earn new wages during your past benefit year. Yes, you had earnings from 9/11-1/12 – but those earnings can only be considered for the 2012 claim if you didn’t qualify using the standard base period. You did qualify, so those earnings were ignored.

    Also, the 9/11-1/12 earnings will only be considered in the 1/5/13 claim application if you worked and earned NEW wages during your past benefit year. Many people work off and on during a benefit year AND collect UE at the same time. If you had worked in 2012 after filing for benefits, you might have qualified for a new claim 1/13.

    If you find a job and are laid off in March 2013, you might yet be able to open another claim which will include those 9/11-1/12 earnings. CA can then use earnings from 10/11-9/12 in its SBP or, alternatively, use earnings 1/12-12-12 to qualify you. CA will always use the SBP before the ABP.

      Thank you! What are your sources?

          Thanks for the link. I did have a seasonal job for a couple of months to where I earned the 1300 and listed that job on my claim. So, that letter is incorrect. Doesn’t the EDD see wages earned in October November and December of 2012? The letter states that I did not earn money from 1/8/2012 to 1/5/2013. This is not true. I did not list wages on my claim form because I had direct deposit and never received any check stubs. In order to view check stubs, I had to go online to do it. Since I am not employed there anymore, they cut that access. The EDD should have that information.

          • Isabella4ever

            What do you mean you “never listed wages on your claim form because you had DD and never received check stubs.” ????

            I hope you reported those earnings on your weekly claim forms, or stopped claiming for the weeks you worked.

            Earnings – whether you are paid or not – MUST be reported the week they are earned. This is clearly stated in the CA Handbook and on the claim form. You estimate as closely as you can what you expect your gross are for that week you are claiming.

            The employer may not have reported the earnings on a timely basis, so they may not yet appear in the CA database. If you want CA to consider those earnings, you need to call them. They will want paystubs.

            If you never reported those earnings, CA will stop your benefits and want want repayment for the weeks you claimed while you were working. CA will then stop your benefits until they investigate this failure to report.

          • ddeburger

            Meaning, they asked for any employers that I worked for in the past 18 months. In order to view check information, I had to log into their hr site to view that info. I worked for a company and we were unionized and so my direct deposit would not reflect wages earned without union dues and such. I was NOT collecting unemployment at the time because as I said in my first post, the intitial claim on 1/8/12 ran out in September and I didn’t get any extensions. I started the job in October if 2012 and worked til the end of December.

          • ddeburger

            By claim form, I meant online filing form when you apply for UI.

  • ddeburger

    Another twist in the story. Today I receive a claim form in the mail for two weeks 1/6-1/12 thru 1/13-1/19. Not sure what I am getting or for how long because I have received absolutely nothing from EDD other than that Notice of Determination, Section 1277 letter and now a two week claim form. I am totally not complaining, but its just really odd to me.

  • katiewla

    I just got the Invalid Claim with an appeals form attached. I’ve been on UI for one year. but the there is a box with an X that says “This determination does not affect your claim for extended benefits.” HUH? I have tried to reach the EDD but they have a message that says basically we are too busy call another time. Should I go to the EDD in person to find out what’s going on?

  • katiewla

    This was so helpful. I also wrote an email to the EDD for clarification. I think now that I am OK and will continue to receive benefits.

  • Gisela Rivera

    The key sentence in this confusing letter is “THIS DETERMINATION DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR CLAIM FOR EXTENDED BENEFITS.” If you are in California EDD will file an extension for you.

  • SoCal

    I too have received a invaild claim section 1277 paper with a appeal on it then later like the next day i received a certification paper then a few days later i received an unemployment insurance award……I don’t know if I will get paid? Can someone help? I was counting on the money I receive to pay my bills so I don’t end up on the street! Will I still get paid?

    • SoCal

      My invalid claim section 1277 also had the boxes a-c marked and the box that said this determination does not affect your claim for extended benefits. I’ve been on ue for a year now.
