Hi all! I'm in California and my claim-year ends at the end of next week. I am eligible for a new claim based on some earnings last year. However, those earnings are a lot less than my current claim. But, the difference between the amounts of the new claim and the old claim is less than 25% and $100 a week difference (just barely by about $4!).

The thing I want to know is that do I have to file a new claim, or can I continue receiving my 1st tier and move on to my 2nd tier, etc? I would like to stay on my current claim, if possible.

You won't be able to stay on your old claim. They are going to open a new claim for you, after you exhaust those benefits, they will return you to your remaining tier benefits.

So, I would be receiving the new, smaller amount and not remaining on the older, larger amounts? Darn.

I thought that if you had already started on your tiers, you didn't have to start a brand new claim.

Your benefit must be $100 or 25% less than the previous claim in order to stay on the previous claim AND you must have begun collecting EUC in order to stay on the first claim. You meet the second criteria but not the first.

Darn. OK. Well, if it has to be it has to be.

Now, I was told either to call in a few days before it expires and/or apply again online. Would this be correct? Or, will they automatically look into extensions for me when the claim ends and I shouldn't do anything?
