I recently received a notice stating that I do not qualify for EUC benefits. I'm so confused! I just exhausted my first and only round (5 months) of state unemployment benefits and have never needed to file for unemployment before. If someone could help me understand how/why I'm not eligible, I'd really appreciate it. I'm sorta freakin' out here.
Here was/is my situation...

- Relocated to San Diego from Colorado last August. Worked FT in San Diego from September to April. Laid off.
- Immediately applied for, and was awarded unemployment. Although my bi-weekly statements claim that my benefits don't expire until March 2012, my weekly allowance funds of $335/wk were used up by mid-August.
- Family and friends assured me that Federal EUC benefits woudl automatically kick in, and that i just needed to wait for the paperwork.

Well, the paperwork just arrived and stated that I "Do Not" qualify. Hmm?? Any idea why not? And would it be worth it for me to appeal? If so, what would my argument be??

Thanks! Any insight would be really appreciated.

Call EDD and ask. If your claim was based on six months' earnings or less, the earnings might not be sufficient to qualify for EUC. Each state is different in its earnings requirements. The March 2012 date is the end of your benefit year and time within which you are allowed to collect your state benefits. You have now exhausted those.
