Default How does the second benefit year work? (Maryland)

I filed my unemployment claim in Sept. 2009. I am still unemployed since then and received benefits up to Sept. 2010, when Maryland Unempl. asked me to file a new claim since my benefit year is expiring. However, Maryland unemployment has denied my claim, sayng that I had to work since my first benefit year in order to get benefits for the second year. I have been having such a hard time finding a job, i don't know how i will pay my mortgage and utilities this month. I should probably appeal, is there any way I can get benefits again?

You don't have anything to appeal - or worry about.

At the end of a benefit year, the states are required to reevaluate your earnings to see if you qualify for a new claim year. If your earnings are insufficient, your application for a new claim year is denied, your old claim is automatically reopened and you continue on the EUC tier program. This is standard operating procedure. The letters sent out are confusing because they don't tell you the whole story.

However - KEEP CLAIMING. All should be well. It occurs to me, however, that we are almost to the end of October. Your old claim year should have been reopened a couple of weeks ago. However, if you stopped claiming, that could have halted the process and you will need to call the unemployment office to reopen the claim.
