new claim

Find out all things related to opening a new claim or re opening an old one.

I filed a new claim three weeks ago. This past Monday (1/4) I received my UI paper work. After registering with UI I noticed I had weeks to certify for, which I then did online. The next day I received a notice of my award in the mail. On Wednesday I received a paper claim form.

I have not been paid. It still lists as “pending” in UI. Did I make a mistake by certifying via UI? Was I supposed to only certify with the paper form the first time? No interview has been scheduled. The award said I had to meet further eligibility requirements. I registered for CalJobs and updated my resume. I was on UI last year. Usually I get paid the day after certifying. But I’m wondering if I should have waited and certified with the paper form first. I emailed EDD today, since I certified five days ago and there has been no change. It says they received my certification but payment is still pending.


I filed a claim approx 5 months ago for unemployment I was fired and denied benefits, I didnt appeal because I found a job a couple of weeks later, I worked there 3 months a temporary job then was laid off, no fault of my own, company slow for the holidays, laid off this november 6th, so I filed another claim and recently recieved the letter stating that I was laid off, and next day recieved and filled out claim form for the 2 weeks, and mailed it in, today i recieved what I thought was another form to fill out for the next 2 weeks, but it was just a blank form with the stub at the top stating claim ends 7/ 15/2016 which is 6 months however it said on the stub benifits paid for each week is $0.00is this because the other claim is not valid now and this new claim cant be opened for 52 weeks? never sent me a letter of a phone interview or ant other reason do i have to wait 52 weeks to open a new claim, or is the previous claim been closed because i was dis qualified I have money in there which wasnt paid because of disqualification thank you for your help, I cant contact edd ofcourse


I had an open claim from 9-12-14 until 9-12-15. I filed a new claim on 9-20-15 (because Im under the impression that because there are no more federal extentions you just need to file a new claim). Ive now recieved some very confusing letters from the EDD. The first letter I got says that its a notice of determination of invalid claim, section 1277 (doesnt this mean I was denied?). The second letter says its a notice of unemployment insurance award and the amount I was awarded. The third is a continued claim form that tells me to certify just as I did last year when recieviving benefits. So doesnt that mean I am going to get my money??? Please help!!! Im so confused and cant find any current info online :(


I was in the CTB program and my first claim ended 9/19/15 but was informed through an appeal decision letter that my benefits would end sometime in March of 2016 with my extensions. and was told to file a new claim. I just received a notice of an invalid claim section 1277. The box to the side of “this determination will not affect your extended benefits” is NOT marked. Has there been anyone that has still gotten benefits even with the box NOT marked??? And should I appeal since I was told I would have benefits till March of 2016??


i filed my claim in April, which just re-opened the existing claim I had started the year before. In July, my claim rolled over to a new claim with a higher weekly benefit amount (yay!) and I had a waiting period week then.

Fast forward to August. I started working part time again. Certified for weeks A and B using UI Online. Week B I worked too much and had 0 benefit. Last week I received my paper claim form in the mail, along with another letter that stated that I had filed a new claim. I did not file a new claim, my current claim goes until July 2016 and I have $6000 left on it. Today, I certified for weeks C and D. UI Online is showing that week C is a waiting period and I get no benefits. I worked less than 10 hours that week, and really needed that money. I can’t even afford to feed my dog, she’s been eating beans and leftovers for the past few days. I scrounged for loose change just to buy gas to get to work and am praying that I don’t run out of gas on the freeway again today, I can’t even call AAA because my phone is shut off.

I am pretty familiar with the ins and outs of EDD, and I can’t figure out why this is happening. I submitted a question via Ask EDD (which isn’t easy anymore) and will post an update once I receive a response. Has this happened to anyone else? I hope it’s a system glitch and we can correct it, but if not, I want to know why so I can plan for it if it’s going to happen again.


so i applied for benefits feb. 2015 and it is now aug 2015 and i got a letter saying..

“You have received all the benefits payable on your claim and no extended benefits are available to you. If unemployed, you many file a new claim by visiting our………”

it says i can reapply jan 2016 when my claim is over?????

So are all my benefits over already. I wont get any help even tho my claim is still open? arent extended benefits available? atleast tier 1 extension?

Im upset its taking me so long to find a job and i am more upset that I need more time to find a job and stable out. And im just horrified t at the EDD basically told me to go f*** myself…

WIth all this stress and worry, very hard to just focus on finding job, I got kids and roof to maintain :(



I am filing a new unemployment claim next week, I have W-2 wages. I also had a 1099 contract job recently that was for 2 days.

My question:
Would I list that 2 day 1099 job on the new claim form application?

Thank you for an info.
