They don't know if you don't tell them.

I just finished filling out the Food Stamp/ general assistance application and they ask for bank accounts, how much is in them and the account numbers. They have your social security number so they can easily find out if you're lying. When you check that you agree tot he terms, etc I'm sure background checks and asset checks are done. I'll let you guys know what happens with it.

You are probably going to get no more despite if the extension is approved.
It has to do with your start date, it varies.

It goes by #of weeks, period,

>not Max dollar amount That figure at the top of your payment history)

read the below thread, use the calculator

__________________________________

amount-extension-benefits-you-will-receive.

the amount of extension benefits you will receive if it's approved

^^click here read

if you could claim after Dec 29 (and wiat for the possible extension) and then a little after you go on the site and there is no "claim weekly benefits" it probably means you used it all up and the extension going through would have no effect.

_______________________________

A single person no kids on Public assitance,
food stamps max
$ 189/week
welfare cash, probably under $100 a week - if you qualify ( not sure the amount exactly ask some poor folk) Food stamp max I am sure about
>>> 45 days waiting period
must go immediately while waiting every day to workforce job center every day
There they have job pre-screen recruiting all the time, other job resources

_____________________________

I was in your same state of not knowing what was going on a very short time ago.
I called unemployment, they said use the calulator to determine # of weeks.
That's all you are going to get if the extension goes through, weeks is it
In my case I just have one week retroactive coming IF THE EXTENSION goes through
and that's all

I thought I was going to get 70 + weeks, turns out it's 63, Iused all 63 except one week
-the figure varies based on start date. It's all based on start date, nothing else. You don't even have to log in to get the start date. You just need to log in after to payment history and count how many weeks you used

Don't let depression hit you , you have to do everything you can do immediately.
Going into that HRA Office on 14th St, Its all poor people. It's scarey and sad . But you will get beyond it,
People can lose their house but bounce back. Houses are not you. Also evictions can take a while. I hope it doesn't come to that but accept it if it does. Plan ahead

thanks for the info but im a little confused, that calculator says its for new york im in california
also you said you got 63 weeks of benefits? i only got about 28 weeks (maybe 29 or 27)
but from what youre saying it seems like im not getting any more benefits, im just confused because they didnt mail me anything about or email or anything and are harder to get thrugh to on the phone than usual i called over 35 times yesterday and never got through to a live person

CA was mailing those who had been on EUC for a while that benefits were ending. You began too late, probably, to get a notice.

Claim date affects number of weeks you receive depending on state and size of your claim, not necessarily when you file.

You exhausted your State of California benefits and received 2-3 weeks federal EUC. All federal EUC benefit payments ended with week ending 12/28/2013. There is nothing further for you until Congress acts.

You should familiarize yourself with the EDD website. CA has been posting updates on its website, here:

EDIT: apparently my claim expires in march 2014, i get that the extension wont happen but if my claim is still active until march why do my benefits stop now?

thank you for the information i was under the impression that might be the case but i wasnt sure if i had exhausted my resources or not, i guess i have thank you again

EDIT: i just looked through some of my paperwork and it says my claim is active until march 2014 so i shouldnt need the extended benefits right? why would it get cut off now?
