Default Confused About Tier 3 of CA UI Benefits - Can Any One Help?

I just exhausted my second extension and was told that I will be automatically filed for my their extension via email from an EDD representative. They gave me the following information regarding my tiers of benefits:
[SIZE=3]
You exhausted benefits on your 2nd extension, EUX, and the EUY (1 week) will be filed automatically. Please read the information below regarding the 3rd extension. If you collect all available benefits on your second extension before January 1, 2012, the EDD will automatically file the third federal extension. No action is needed on your part. The extension order is as follows: EUC (20wks), EUX (13wks), EUY (1wk), EUZ (6wks) & FED-ED (20wks).

What the EDD rep provided above only adds up to 86 weeks, not 99.

[/SIZE]Does anyone have any information on why I would only get 1 week for Tier 3 and not 13 which would provide me with the full 99 weeks of UI benefits?

First Extension Process
1. It is filed for you, there's nothing to do on your end.
2. Fill out your claim forms as usual every 2 weeks

Although your last check for your regular unemployment is for one week, the extension will
cover the week that is XX out.
As an example:
Last check is for
Jan 1-15 Paid
Jan 16-30 XX out, no pay

Your first extension check would be
Jan 16-30 Paid
Feb 1-15 Paid

The extensions have been extended until January 2012

Here's the correct chart of the new calculations, for some reason the unemployment offices are still sending out the outdated information.

I have been on unemployment for 52 weeks or one year. I received a letter last week saying that I had to re-apply for benefits. Then I received another letter this week saying I had to send them information on my employment for last year which of course I don't have since I was unemployed. I just sent off a letter, asking why they needed me to do this because I thought the extensions were automatically filed. I also wrote them that I need 30 or more days notice if I am not receiving an extension so I can give my apartment manager notice and find a friend to live with since I will have no money to live on. I will see what they say but I am baffled on why they are having me reapply when they already know from my claims that I was unemployed all last year.

Everyone in every state has to re-certify their UI claim at the one-year anniversary (Benefit Year End or "BYE"). It is part of the process.

You file a new claim at the one-year anniversary. If you have accrued sufficient credits for a new claim, it is opened for you. If not, your new claim is denied, and your original claim is reopened -- and your weekly benefits resume.

States often automatically file for a claimants next extension -- but few states automatically re-certify claimants at the BYE.

I'm starting to think they don't always follow their own rules. As I reflect, my brother has been on UI here in California nearing 99 weeks, and he has never had to recertify on his own. He has never had to call them up and or recertify online.

If your brother has never been contacted about re-certifying -- or about his original claim being extended past his initial 52 weeks -- and has continued collecting on the same claim past his BYE (without pause) then he is apparently the exception.

At the very least, he should have received notification that a new claim was filed for him automatically at his BYE -- and denied -- and that he would be continuing to collect on his original claim.

That he did receive. You can hardly get through on the telephone to call someone at the EDD here in California. The only time I was ever able to reach a live person at the EDD is when opened up my initial claim 2 years ago.

I keep reading people say you have to call to recertify and I keep wondering how are these people getting a live person.

I passed my benefit year last summer and had no problem getting through to someone at EDD. Had to wait on hold for a while, but not really that long, no longer than when I call any other state agency. I called a week or two later with a question, and again, no problem getting through.
