new claim

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

Hi! So I just received the “Notice of unemployment insurance claim files” and on page 2, where it outlines my “maximum benefit amount” , “total wages” , “weekly benefit amount” etc…..all of those fields are $0.00. Even wages. Which is obviously wrong. But it let me file my first continued claim form. But there is no payment of funds.

Now I noticed on page 3, a tiny sentence that says “If you work for a federal agency, your wages must be requested from that federal agency. You will receive a Notice of Amended unemployment award, with these wages added”

Am I reading this correctly that I have to wait for them to receive my federal wages before they will dispense unemployment funds??

Thank you all so much!


I was laid off last year and received unemployment benefits. By June 2017 of this year all my benefits were exhausted and because I haven’t found a job yet, I was advised to apply for benefits when my claim expired. My claim expired 12/2/2017 and I applied for a new claim recently. So I received a disqualification letter stating that I would have to worked this year in order to receive benefits. A week later I received an award letter stating the weekly amount and an edd booklet. So I called edd and asked a representative who didn’t really give me an answer as to why I received a disqualification and then an award letter. I just don’t have it in me to sit on the phone for four hours only for a recorded person to tell me to call back later.So can anyone tell me what this means? Am I getting benefits or am I not?

Help Filing Extension

I filed in January 2017…only collected for 2 weeks..took a temporary job…worked til June and was laid off there so I filed again but it was still under that claim from January 2017. I still haven’t found a job and my benefits will run out soon. I don’t want to scramble to figure out how to file for an extension…there is no information on website. I know I will have money because I worked during the the time a new claim will be calculated. Just need to know how to file extension…or do I just file a new claim? Filing a new claim doesn’t make sense because there is no job that I lost…just ran out of benefits. I have benefits until Dec 4th and want to avoid any interuptions in payments if I don’t find a job by then!
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

I filed for U.I. benefits I’mwhen I was laid off in October 2016. I exhausted the benefits on my claim. I opened a new claim since I’m still unemployed. Will I still be eligible to receive U.I. benefits?

I was approved for CTB for 18 months when my school ends. Online TE states it is one time for 6 months. Which is correct? Or is after the extended 6 months when I get a new claim award based on new earnings?

Hi! So this is my 3rd time being on state disability (California) I just started this new claim early March and I’ve already done one continued claim (2500A) for a 14 day period and now I have to do another one at the end of this 14 day period. I’ve never had these so frequently. Normally it’s every few months or so. Does anyone have any idea why?

So, I usually religiously certify Midnight Sunday Morning or as soon as I wake up at around 6am or 7am, but this time, I forgot about it until Monday and filed my two weeks certification online at 9:48AM. (It’s been almost a year since I’ve needed it much so got out of habit.) Second issue is that this is a new claim. Third issue is that I have a telephone interview scheduled for next Monday. My first guess was that I’d be held back until they interview me. But, then, I was allowed to use the online certification. I am now curious as to whether or not I will get a surprise this Tuesday evening with a load at around 9pm-11pm or so. It’s already 8:15pm, so it seems doubtful: they would have processed the bulk of approvals Monday evening, so today should have been a fast run, and have already happened by 8:15pm. I’m assuming I have to pass the telephone interview and then they will release it for that Tuesday.
