Folks, please do not do this. Back in April I filed to open a claim. Finances were running out and I could get $65 a week. So, I did, but I never got any documents from EDD, except a continuing claim form. I filled it out and sent it in. Just doing what they requested. If they had sent me documents, I would have understood why I should Not have filled out the claim form. When you do that, it establishes the claim and the claim pays that stupid amount for a year, no matter what. So, fast forward to taking a job after that for six months and now eligible for benefits because the job ended. I could collect $450 a week, but if I reopen the claim, I will only get $65. Well, I am a persistent person, and I am trying to find a way to Cancel the claim, mainly because I never got payment on it, I never got a notice of determination in the mail, nor a notice I filed a claim, and I really did not understand the process, because EDD explained nothing. I have got as far as getting a telephone interview soon, but EDD obviously does not understand what the interview is about, as the questions they want to ask me are about Not Filing A Claim Within the Required Time Limits. I have no idea, and this stupid action of mine – sending in a continuing claim form once – is ruining my life. I could be getting $450, not $65, and I sure as heck am not going to do anything for now about the $65 claim. Yes, if I am unemployed in April, at one year, I can file a new claim, but that is a long way off. Do not do something stupid like I did. And let us hope, because I never got a debit card or payment, there is still a way to cancel this claim. Anybody there have any constructive suggestions re the telephone interview next week?

On 9-14-14 I receives of determination form statinf that I wasnt eligible for a new claim, on 9-15-14 I received a notice of unemployment insurance award stating my claim begins 9-14-14 to 9-12-15. It’s now October first and I still haven’t received any claim forms or anything. What should I do or expect?

I had a UI claim last year where I was awarded $289.

While I was receiving benefits, I found a job, that claim expired, and now I’m unemployed again. I started a new claim and my weekly benefit amount got upped to $350 a week.

I just got my payment for the last two weeks, and they only gave me $525. Can anyone help explain why EDD would short me $225?

in ¿Confused?

I am clueless, today I received a letter from EDD :YOU HAVE RECEIVED ALL THE BENEFITS PAYABLE ON YOUR CLAIM AND NO EXTENDED BENEFITS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU. IF UNEMPLOYED YOU MAY FILE A NEW CLAIM.

Please help, I don’t know what to do, I received EDD checks for only 6 months…what can I do to continue receiving it?

I know, the letter says to file a new claim, but what income should I write down in the new claim if I have been unemployed all 2014 and my only income has been EDD.

I heard about ppl requesting extensions, how do I do that?

I am totally clueless…I’ll appreciate your help.
thanks

Hello, my claim expires on 11-08-14 but I received a letter stating that I have received all the benefits payable on your claim and that no extended benefits are available to you. If unemployed, you may file a new claim by visiting edd website or calling one to five days before 11-08-14.
Does this mean EDD wont be filing an extension automatically? I recall that they used to have extensions in the past. Should I try to file a new claim before 11-08-14? Thanks.

I had an old unemployment claim back in 12/10/11. I used about 14 week’s of that claim. I recently was let go and approved for benefits. I’m coming up to my 26th weeks of my new claim. I just want to know if I’ll be able to use my old claim to collect benefits?

I’m confused and probably this has been long discussed already…but…I have been in and out of EDD since 2008 when I believe extensions were all in place so I don’t know any other reality of it. I have always worked part time throughout the year, and was able to stretch my claim each year, and then begin a new claim etc. Am I correct now in that this is only possible for 26 weeks? That even if I go weeks without claiming, I will not receive EDD after 26 weeks even if there are thousands of dollars still available to my claim? And I can’t open a new claim until six months after that? So really, EDD is only available as a “stop-gap” for six months out of the year?

Again, I apologize if this has already been long covered. I received this information from an EDD employee so I want to verify…

My unemployment claim expired on 8/2/2014, because of no extensions I have not received any money since February of 2014. I was told I would have to wait until my claim expires before I would be able to re-apply. I can’t get ahold of anyone at the unemployment office for answer, and I have not worked since August of last year. Do I file a new claim or what are my options.
