new claim

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

I wrote to EDD: I meet the requirements for WIOA. My UI “runs out” end of June. I called my America’s Job Center and told this to the woman who answered the phone and that I was calling to ask for information about WIOA / how to enroll. She laughed at me and said “Honey, we don’t have any funds for that and won’t until July. Call back then.” and hung up on me. Uh, what should I do next?
Here is the reply:
Thank you for your inquiry. Please contact the department 1-5 days prior to the end date of your claim, 12/17/2016 to establish a new claim. Other options may be to contact the America’s Job Center and/or search for other training/programs that you may qualify for. Other government/state assistance programs include: General Relief and 211 California that can potentially offer assistance to individuals who are facing hardships.
So now I’m confused – I should contact Job Center again? And my claim expires 12/17/16, but I don’t get paid for my entire claim? Uh, what should I do next?

I’m currently on ui. I originally filed back in 7/15 got benefits for about two months, worked for six months. Unfortunately, I had to re-open my claim on 2/16 . I was wondering after I exhaust these benefits, if I’m able to open up a new claim with the job I had I had for six months?

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 🙁
