I received a phone call from EDD stating that it's been 1 year/12 months since I last filled. They just asked a few questions and said everything should continue as normal.

Now, about 1.5 weeks afterward, I received the "Notice of Unemployment Award" which shows a weekly benefit amount that is 40% lower than the amount I was getting for almost an entire year.

It appears to be counting the last 4 quarters from TODAY, in which I only worked 1 full quarter, the other is only a partial quarter since I was let go, and the other two are "0" quarters since I have obviously not worked. (I was on commission + wages so it made a significant difference).

Is this a mistake? It makes absolutely no sense that they are not counting my last 4 quarters (in which they take the highest quarter) that I worked SINCE BEING LET GO.

My current claim form, which I will mail this Sunday, still states that my weekly amounts for the two weeks is the original amount: will I still at least get that last original amount for my next claim?

I am in California by the way. Thanks for any help.

You have two issues here.

One is the base period used for determining the value of this new claim. Normal qualifying for a new claim usually excludes wages from the quarter in which you file and the quarter previous to that. However, at the end of a benefit year, CA will examine any earnings from the date you filed for eligibility for a new claim. They will only use new earnings during that 12-month period.

The second issue is deferral of this new claim under HR4213 until all EUC tier benefits from your first claim are exhausted. California has what is called the Deferred New Claim Payment Program. In the event your new benefit is 25% or $100 lower than your earlier benefit, you are allowed to defer payments on the new claim until the first claim is exhausted provided:

- your initial benefit year ends after July 24, 2010
- you have remaining entitlement to EUC on that claim
- your new claim is at least $100 or 25% less than your old one
- you did not earn enough income in another state during that initial benefit year to qualify for a new claim

You are entitled to exhaust your first claim EUC benefits which should be considerable at this point. Cite the Deferred New Claim Payment Program. Call CA about this. They are routinely granting claim deferrals provided the above parameters are met.

Lastly, since you are now eligible for a new claim, FED-ED is NOT payable on your first claim ever. FED-ED is payable only on the most recent claim, if it qualifies.

I received a Notice of Determination of Invalid Claim, Section 1277. According to the notice, because I didn't earn $1,300 in one quarter during 8/28/11 to 8/25/12, and performed no work, my claim with an effective date of 8/26/12 is invalid. Additionally, I can't file again until January 2013. WHY???? Why did my claim stop at 52 weeks, but other people get up to 93 weeks? And why can't I file again until January?
