I am on a second tier, soon to be third tier, of extended benefits. I live in California.

I may be starting a temp job soon and was not sure, if at the end of the job, if the extended benefits would still be available.

I have not worked a regular paying job for over a year and the BYE of the claim which the extended benefits came from, was this month.

That is mainly what I need to know - what the procedure would be or what EDD says about ending a temp job and getting back on extended benefits, if that is at all possible.

Thank you.

there is no answer everything ends this year as of right now. if its a good paying position take it and don't get fired. also anything dealing with government is never an easy answer.

It is possible to reopen your old claim. When your temp job ends, call EDD. They will review your earnings history and contact your temp employer as to why you are no longer working. If there are not sufficient earnings for a new claim and your temp employer doesn't create problems, your EUC benefits will resume.

At present, all federal benefit payments end 12/29/2012. It is unknown at this time if Congress will extend benefits into next year, or in what form.

Therefore, if you work beyond 12/29, there may be no benefits available to you at all - unless these new earnings create new claim eligibility. CA does now use an alternate base period to create eligibility, so if this job lasts long enough, you may indeed be eligible for a new claim when the job ends.

Thank you, Ariadne.

I'll take a look at the new alternate base period on the EDD site.

I have no idea how long this job will go and if the fed benefit deadline is not extended, then, hopefully, the abp will apply.

ariadnee22 and jnet -I, too, am on the final two weeks of Tier 1 here in CA. Next week I begin a 6-week temp assignment for a former company I previously worked. I assume that once the assignment ends I should be able to resume the EUC Tiers until the end of December 2012 when the extensions cease. Is this correct? Let's hope congress chooses to extend the EUC tiers in high UE states.

Aside from knowing the length of the temp assignment, your answer is the exact same as the one given to the previous poster.
