new claim

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

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?

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.

Original claim expired. I never collected EUC. I managed to land a job after my state benefits were exhasted, earning around $3,000 – $4,000 … the job let me go, when I re-apply for a new claim will they take my original earnings from my 1st claim or base it off my new earnings?

Ok so Yes I’m not expecting an extension obviously but hypothetically what if you start a new claim because the previous one expired and the extension does pass do you get the extension based on the older claim that expired or the new one?

Example: claim funds ran out December 2013 would have been eligible for an extension if there were any. That claim has since expired but started a new one July 2014. Extension passes now what? Jut curios

Hello all, so I lost my job on 7/13 and got my six months UE from employer A. I exhausted my claim and after 7 month, I was employed part time for employer B.

This lasted from 1/14 to 5/14 when I was laid off. I had to wait until 6/23 to file a new claim because my first one was not yet over. I did so putting down all the money I made in each period including the wages from employer A.

Today I received an award letter for some $6000, but it’s from the money I made from employer A which I had already exhausted. Should I go ahead and mail in my weekly claim form or should I try to spend all of this week attempting to talk to a live representative. I don’t want to do anything fraudulent. Thanks.

My claim ran out. I received a letter to inform me as such. The letter instructed me to visit the website to re-open or start a new claim. I did that, and the website helpfully informed me that I would have to call EDD. I’ve tried this (without exaggeration) probably 50 times, and the recording simply says that they can’t take my call, and directs me to the same website that consistently tells me to call. Someone out there must have a number I can call to reach a human, right?
