Default MD 2nd benefit year eligibility phone interview, help!

I've read through the forum and didn't seem to find a post that answered my question specifically, so I'm hoping someone here can help. FYI: I have exhausted my state unemployment and I am receiving EUC benefits (I still have about 6 months left). I have not earned any money from a job in this past year.

I received a letter a couple of weeks ago stating that my claim benefit year was about to expire and I needed to call the unemployment office to file a new claim. I did this and the woman on the phone asked me a few questions, then said she would mail out new paperwork, and told me to file my web cert for one week that Sunday, then back to bi-weekly after that. I thought that everything was taken care of on that call.

Fast forward to today, when I should have received my direct deposit and nothing was in my account and in today's mail I had a letter with a phone interview scheduled for next week. The letter states that the issue to be resolved is: 2nd Benefit Year Eligibility.

I am just wondering if this is normal or if I should be worried. Does anyone know what will be asked during this interview? I want to be sure I have everything prepared, because even missing this one week is not great for my finances.

Thank you in advance!

SOP in some states to conduct a second interview to be sure you, in fact, are still eligible for continued federal EUC benefits. Don't worry about it. If you're not working, you've been looking for a job, have kept records on your job search, you should be fine.
