Second Unemployment Year, New Claim? Confused!
Last year, I was laid off April 2010 in the state of Georgia.
Currently, I'm in my Third Tier. However, around April 15, I received a letter stating I needed to come in so they could re-evaluate my work history. When I did, I signed a form stating everything is still the same. The clerk told me that she would pay me for the previous week (since I wasn't paid) and that I will automatically continue into the Fourth tier once I've exhausted my Third Tier. From then, I would have to come in for the next step.
However, I received a letter in the mail today stating a that a new claim year starts on 4/5/11.
It states my employer, the four quarters (I only earned money in two of them in 2010; but I've worked with them since 2008).
But in the Weekly Benefit Amount/Potential Number of Weeks/Maximum Benefit Amount the amount is $0.
My appeal expires 5/11/11.
I'm completely confused at this whole process?
Can anyone please help me figure this out? I can't make it to my local Labor Career Center until Thursday morning and these questions will eat me from the inside!
