Am I still eligible for the first round of Federal extensions?
What issues caused the delay?

Technically, state benefits need to be exhausted not later than November 20th in order to move to Tier 1 on November 21st. The fact that you were paid late should not affect this, but depending on the reasons for the delay, it might if CA takes the position your state benefits were not exhausted until November 23.

You need to call CA to find out where you stand.

Supposedly I filled out one of my claim forms incorrectly, so instead of getting a check in the mail, I received a new replacement claim form. So, it made it so that I got that check and corresponding new claim form two weeks later than I should have, causing a chain reaction so that my last check was cut on 11/23/2010. I'm assuming I'm not the only person in California who made an error on one or more of their claim forms that caused the timing of when checks were cut to be skewed.

Technically, my benefits were exhausted on 11/06/2010. I tried calling CA EDD today and they have a recorded message that tells you about the extensions, etc. Once the recorded message is over, it hangs up on you. So I'm going to try calling again tomorrow.

ronallen, you should not have a problem since this was just a paperwork glitch.

I'm confused about the dates for the end of regular/beginning of Tier 1. I just got my final regular unemployment check. It paid through 11/20 and the check was cut the 24th. The edd website is confusing. It says the deadline for starting Tier 1 is 11/21 but "If you are currently collecting on a regular UI claim that provides up to 26 weeks of benefits, and you run out of those benefits anytime after the week ending November 20, 2010, you will not be eligible for a first tier of federal extension benefits or any other extension benefits unless Congress takes further action." So will I receive Tier 1 benefits or not? Anyone know? Thanks

Because your last payment of regular benefits was for the week ended Saturday, November 20, you were eligible to start Tier I on Sunday, November 21. Your eligibility for Tier I is determined by the end date of your regular benefits -- not by the day that the last check is issued.

Oooh. Thanks. I'm in the same boat. I'm still waiting for my Tier 1 claim forms, though. I'm hoping it's in the mail today. *fingers and toes crossed*

Duck, have you received your new claim forms? I haven't yet and I got my last check last Saturday. I know it's only Wednesday but I'm getting nervous. I keep trying to call EDD and it's still that bloody message.

Go to EDD Web Cert https://cccwpd.edd.ca.gov/Security/L...2fdefault.aspx

You can claim online and the checks are issued within a day and you get them in 2 or 3 days. You have to register first, after that it is easy and painless.

HELP!! Just got this in the mail. I recently got passed my one year of benefits. In the letter it said:

Please follow the instructions below. Failure to do so may result in denial of your benefits. Please include your name and Social Security number on any additonal forms you mail to Edd.

1. You are potentially eligible to file a new claim effective 11/14/10. We need your correct last employer information and last date worked before the claim can be filed and any payments can be issued. You may apply on-line at WWW.EDD.CA.GOV or call 1 800 300 5616 for assistance to complete the filing of your claim.

Does this mean I have to file a new claim?? I did not work at all this past year. Nothing has changed, I don't understand why there would be an error on my last employer and last date worked?? What should I do? Please advise. I will try and call them tomorrow!

What you received from CA is a BYE routine form letter. By law, you need to file a new claim application. CA will evaluate your earnings from your first benefit year. If you did not have sufficient earnings to qualify for a new claim, the application for a new claim is denied, your old claim is reopened and you continue receiving benefits under your old claim.

Complete the application online, or call CA. Basically, you would be repeating the information you provided them when you first filed - your employer and last day worked. You are probably right now collecting tier 2 benefits. You should be able to continue your benefits on that tier until exhausted.
