OK Because I'm here a lot reading and getting information, I will go ahead and ask for some help or enlightenment with my confusing situation.

So Nov 13, 2011 was the day I filed for unemployment because I started working part time due to school and had requested for California Training Benefits. I then received the claim forms for the week ending in 11/19/11 and 11/26/11 which I both mailed promptly. I reported wages on 11/19 that was over my weekly benefit so i was unpaid, and the week ending in 11/26 (in which I worked a day for $71) was used as a waiting period. A week later I received a letter stating I was denied for benefits, and at the same time I was laid off the day before Thanksgiving, Nov. 23. I appealed the decision and continued to mail the claim forms. My court hearing was scheduled the end of January, and praise God , I won , so I am currently on my Tier 1. Here are my concerns:

1. It says my claim year was from 11/13/11-11/10/12..but after looking at the payment stubs I have been saving from the regular UI and the Tier 1 benefits, it looks like my 26 week benefits started payment on 12/03/11 ( I was unpaid for both weeks ending in 11/19 and 11/26). Would it have been appropriate that my claim date should have started 12/03 instead of 11/13?

2. My benefit year will expire Nov 10, 2012. Do I need to refile this myself? Will I get a telephone interview because of the $399 earnings I had from 11/13-11/19 and the $71 from 11/26 eventhough the 26 week benefits started to pay me 12/03/11?

3. If I am to have an interview, what information will I need to have? Will I qualify to continue Tier 2 with the current benefit amount I am receiving?

4. I've been reading about the alternate base period. Because I had earned $399 from when the claim started, are they going to use that towards the alternate base period because of the recertification?

I find the whole process a bit complicated. Any help or enlightenment is truly appreciated. Sometimes reading too much can stress you out, lol. God Bless everyone.

No. You filed your claim on 11/13/11. You experienced a one-week (Sun-Sat) mandatory waiting period. Thus, you were able to claim for the next completed week beginning 11/19, which you claimed along with the next week ending 12/3 in the bi-weekly claim period ending 12/3.

You file online yourself. CA may schedule a phone interview on these earnings, although the amount is so small they may ignore it.

You will or will not continue on Tier 2 depending on new claim eligibility. A new claim is not happening with $399 in earnings. So, you will continue on Tier 2.

If, by remote chance, CA finds you eligible for a new claim, it may apply its DNCP (Deferrred New Claim Program) option and allow you to continue to collect under the old claim. Benefits under the new claim must be $100 or 25% lower than first claim benefits to qualify. Otherwise, CA will stop EUC and pay state benefits from the new claim.

You don't need to have any information other than what you have readily at hand. Don't worry about it.

ABP is only used if you can't be qualified under the normal base-year method. $399 is not sufficient to qualify you for anything.

Thanks Ariadnee22.

I have read so many posts saying they file it automatically for you, so when I do file it myself...
1. Is it the same form as the regular UI or is there a recertification form?
2. When would be the appropriate time to file?
3. What information will I be needing?
4. I applied for CTB on 11/13, but was terminated on 11/20. How should I go about recertifying?
5. What factors may deem me eligible for a new claim with what I had provided?

Thanks again.

Ariadne, I read some of your posts regarding BYE

When I filed last year for my initial claim, I stated those weeks that I worked, so shouldnt EDD already have my W2 from last year? I saw a post that you had mentioned to NOT file online and to just keep claiming until CA automatically files it for you.
