new claim

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

Mid April is the end of my one year claim date; fortunately, have worked temp job last four months and should re-qualify. Any known pros/cons to reopening a claim during the final week of current claim or should I let it expire and then open a new claim?? Secondly, new claim will qualify only on Alternate base period wages –so do I have to request this calculation or will EDD automatically calc for me?? Thanks for any insight.

I collected umemployment insurance from July 2011 to January 2012, and then I became employed and stopped collecting unemployment benefits. Then, I became unemployed again in February 2015 and filed a new claim. I filled out my first claim for in the mail, and now I just received an REA appointment notice. Why do I have to attend this interview if I did not file for an extension and am starting a new claim?

Here’s the situation: I had a claim in 2008. I neglected to declare some part-time employment which resulted in an overpayment. My fault, I get it. Cut to Jan 2015: I get laid off and file a new claim. EDD informs me that I’m on a penalty period of 10 weeks after which time, EDD will deduct 100% of my weekly benefit amount until my overpayment balance is paid. I took that to mean that the overpayment balance would NOT be deducted during the penalty period and that the penalty period would essentially be a “holding period” during no payments would be made to me and no repayments would be deducted for my overpayment. But, here’s the thing: my 10 week penalty period ended three weeks ago and this week I received my EDD debit card with $900 on it. Does this mean that EDD already deducted my overpayment balance from my total payout amount or has something gone wrong? Note: my overpayment balance was $2800, so no way could it have cleared in three weeks if they’re only taking $450/wk. What’s going on? Anyone else experience this?

I have a letter from EDD stating a new claim was opened 12/28/2014.

Then How come I have no MONEY.

EDD told me me I need a new initial claim, the one I sent was a week too early, my old claim was good for that week. ok,
So I sent a new claim in Jan. they do not have a new one. So when I sent my 2 week form in, late Jan. I sent a copy of the initial claim. Guess what they still say they do not have it.

So on 2/10 sent another 2 week form in and a 3rd copy of my new initial claim. Still no $ and still no word from EDD.

They blaming computers that were supposed to solve the delays, this was in 2013. Still say computer problems. Someone is lying to all of us.

My benefits are about to run out and I’m about 5 months away from the “claim ending”. Is there a way once my benefits run out to open a new claim?
