I moved from California to Colorado and today I received a letter from CA EDD that I qualify for Tier 2 extension and on the bottom of the letter it talks about new Work Search Requirements.

There is a list of requirements.

1. Register for work with CalJOBS (which I have done a long time ago, while living in California)
2. Continue to look for work each week (I do that all the time)
3. Contact at least 3 employers each week. (I contact much more than 3)
4. Maintain a detailed report of your work search contacts each week. (This is something new, which I don't mind doing)

It also talks about Reemployment Eligibility Assessment (REA) Requirements.

And that's what I am confused about. It says "You may be required to attend a REA appointment.

So, I am wondering whether they will call me into local Colorado office for the appointment? The letter is not clear about out of state claims.

Has anyone already had to go through these new requirements in a state different from the unemployment claim collection state? I am sure there will be a number of people in a situation similar to mine.

Thanks!

Hello. I am sure someone might be in a similar situation as I. Moved to a different state, collecting unemployment from original state and began Tier II. Any experience with the new work search requirement? Did anyone called you in your new state from the unemployemnt office for proof of your work search? If yes, what did you need to bring with you?
Thank you!

CA EDD, along with all other states, are now doing the REA appointments. I am not sure if there will be a requirement that you attend in CA or if you will be allowed to attend in CO. I would call EDD, explain the situation, and see what they say. My guess would be that you will be able to attend in CO...but that is only a guess. Also, as some of the things EDD does make no sense at all, it is not unfathomable that they would require you to be in CA for the meeting.

But, be aware, if they say you need to attend the meeting in CA and you do not make the meeting, it will stop your benefits.

Thank you! Of course it wouldn't make sense for me to fly CA, considering how much is the cost of the ticket nowdays. Hope they come up with the right solution.

Hopefully....but if it means no more benefits, as not showing up will cancel ALL benefits. So in light of that, even if they say go to CA< it may be worth it.

I doubt they will ask someone who is unemployed to fly to L.A. for $250

It is the EDD...I'm not betting against it.

Let us know what happens. These meetings are fairly new, so I am guessing there are a lot of people who will be in your situation.
