Yes - new legislation permitting. In the past, benefits have been reinstated retroactively.

New URGENT Question:

My claim expires 1/25/13. I received a letter (well basically a blank piece of paper with the standard small text at the top) from EDD saying the following

You have received all the benefits payable on your claim and no extended benefits are available to you. If unemployed, you many file a new claim by visiting our website at www.edd.ca.gove or calling your unemployment insurance office ONE TO FIVE DAYS BEFORE 1-25-14. If you file as instructed and are otherwise eligible, you may receive a waiting period credit for the week ending 1-25-14.

Then the standard jargon about it being taxable

My question is this:

When filing the claim within 5 days of 1/25, on the EDD application for the question
Have you filed an Unemployment Insurance Claim in California in the last 12 months?
Do I put yes or no. Since I'm filing before the BYE which they are instructing me to do, I would imagine 'yes' but won't that make me ineligible. It's a catch 22. Please HELP!

Thanks - I had put no cause I counted the weeks....then at the end they ask if you've 'applied for a claim' in the past 2 years and I figured these were dates for 're-openeing' a claim. I then jumped back to this thread and saw your answer. Interesting thing is that is the ONLY thing you can't edit on the form. So I erased my name and ex-d out in order to start over - thank goodness I didn't submit. Better to do this than get some denial cause I accidentally put no.
THANKS ARIADNE22

NEW QUESTION.
As stated above I received a 'letter' stating that my benefits expired. However, I received a claim form as well for the following 2 weeks, ending 1/18. I went online to fill out the claim form because it is my understanding to fill out anything EDD sends. I knew the benefits were exhausted because I got the letter. As stated above I filed my claim online on the 22nd of January. I got another letter (clearly a response to the last claim form) that stated the exact same verbiage as I put above. Here is my question:

Today I went online to EDD webcert just to see what it said and for the last claim (ending week of 1/18) it said submitted and the date next to that said 1/22. I submitted the claim form on 1/19, I filed the NEW claim on 1/22....so why is the date of the NEW claim next to 'submitted' for the last claim form submitted?

I got a confirmation number for my new claim, but it seems strange to have that date next to the submittal of a claim form. Guess I am just worried cause of all the problems I've incurred...concerned they are confusing the form with the new claim. I have yet to receive the standard letter that I have filed the new claim. Perhaps this is just something they do. Clarification please...Thanks

Because you filed your new claim prior to 1/25, as instructed, and therefore, as they told you:

Sorry, not understanding....

Why is the submitted date that is under status for this form refelcting the date the NEW claim was filed - regardless of a waiting period credit that is a week later. When I see a date on this line, it seems that it reflects the day the 2 week claim 'form' was filed (hence the confusion). Below is what is on my EDD web cert - see how it looks like the 1/22 date reflects the 2 week form ending 1/18?
It would be a lot clearer if 1/25 was on a new line. Since the waiting period credit is a week later why are they noting it next to this form info? Sorry but this is soooooo confusing to me and I am afraid of errors

Beginning 01/05/2014
Ending 01/18/2014
Weeks 2
Submitted0 1/22/2014

Don't worry about it. It's CA's way of telling itself that a new claim was filed in advance of your bye so your waiting week is served.

Hello, i am in a similar situation, my claim expired on 2-1-14.

I received the expiration letter stating i may qualify for a new claim but nothing about filing before my BYE. My claim began 2-3-13 and like i said it expired 2-1-14, i worked from 4/13-12/13 at which point i re-opened my claim.

My question is in regards to the new file question, "Have you filed an Unemployment Insurance Claim in California in the last 12 months?", common sense tells me the answer is no but i don't feel like going with my gut only to find out that re-opening a claim counts as filing a claim and having to answer to the edd.

Any help in this matter would be much appreciated, also any thoughts on why i may not have received a letter advising me to file before my BYE.
