Default Crap, I just checked and they only sent one week instead of two

This morning I claimed my two weeks like always, and I went to check up on it tonight, and they show they've only sent me one of the two weeks I claimed.

It shows that I still have like a $1200 balance on my tier, so I know that it isn't because I ran out of money on my tier.

The only thing I can think of is that I made my initial clam on Dec 6th, so maybe I have to re establish the claim after one year?

If this is the case what should I do? Just call them in the morning? Can I do this over the phone? I never received a letter saying anything.

How much information would I have to have? I don't recall dollar amounts of my initial claim, and cannot find old paperwork of my initial claim.

I'm in Florida.

I searched the forum for past topics and I think I'm supposed to tell them that I haven't received any wages this year, and then they continue my original claim?

I don't know if this is by phone though or if I have to request a document to sign or what.

Fingers crossed I continue my claim like usual and hopefully get that other check sometime. Was expecting two weeks like normal instead of one, and as most of you on this forum know, every single penny counts when trying to make it month to month.

Call Florida immediately. You need to recertify your claim. They should have told you this at some point in the last month, I would think. If your wages during your first benefit year are insufficient, they will reopen your old claim and continue payments. There may be a week or two delay in resumption of benefits while they go through the process, although you will get your money retroactively.

Is this all done over the phone?

I never got a letter saying to recertify, knowing florida though it'll probably arrive in about two months. :/

Phone is the usual way, although some states have online capability. I wouldn't risk anything other than going in person or talking to someone on the phone. How did you apply initially?

Called this morning.

The lady explained that I should be getting something in the mail about wages earned this year, followed by a rejection letter after that, but not to worry.

She did the paperwork over the phone and submitted it, basically I don't qualify for some new claim because I haven't earned wages this year, so that is cancelled, and then my regular tier continues.

She said this usually doesn't take more than a week, and that they release that second check whenever this process is up, so gonna be pretty broke for a week, but at least I got it taken care of.
