Hello,
Exhibiting symptoms of confusion here, hope someone here can help. Three weeks ago, I applied for UI, had a phone interview on 8/30/2016. After which, I certified for UI benefits online. I have not received an approval or denial letter from EDD, however. When I check my UI account online, it shows EDD issued one payment for 2nd week and the 1st was the (Waiting Period Served for week ending 08/19/2017). So far so good, now. Keep in mind I have yet to receive and debit card or approval or denial letter from EDD. What I did get in the mail was, continued claim form for the next two weeks. Here is my confusion, I login to my UI account this morning and under “notification” it reads:
“Reopen Your Claim

If you have not certified for benefits for a period of time or you have never certified during this benefit year, you must reopen your claim”

and just below that it reads, under notifications.

In-Person Appointment

Reemployment Eligibility Assessment

You have an in-person appointment scheduled. You must appear at the date and time shown. Failure to attend this appointment may affect your eligibility to receive Unemployment Insurance benefits. A letter was sent to you containing information about your appointment. If you have not received this letter before your appointment date, contact us.

Does this suggest that my UI claim was denied and I have to reapply (hence the reopen your claim title)? and there is a link to reopen claim. Since its a holiday weekend, I cant get in touch with edd rep. Hoping someone here can help me understand, if my claim was denied and that I have to reapply.
Thank you all in advance.
