I got this mail from EDD today which states:
NOTICE OF EXHAUSTED UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
During this historic national recession, the federal government has approved an unprecedented amount of unemployment benefits available. According to our records, you have now collected all of the unemployment benefits currently available to you. Congress and President Obama have extended the filing deadlines for federal extension benefits to the end of December 2012. However, the legislation did not include any additional weeks of benefits. Therefore, unemployed workers who have collected all benefits available to them do not have any further payable weeks to claim.
1) I have collected around 83-86 weeks not the maximum of 99 weeks. Am I not eligible for 13 weeks more (or atleast till Dec 29th? )
2) Also , is there anyway I can plead my case. I am very actively looking for a job and have all the records to show.
In need of desperate help!
