I am in California and I heard once you are unemployed and claiming unemployment benefits, you must be working a certain # days to become eligible again?

My background been:
Working Nov 2011 - Nov 2012. Then Unemployment for two months. Working Jan 2013 until few weeks ago. Entire time I was earning about $18/hour.

If I take a new job that is a 90-day contract, can I still file unemployment once the job is over? What about if they only have work for me for 60 days? Is it possible to open unemployment (reapply) multiple times a year?

Thanks

You can take a temp job and reopen your CA claim when that work is finished. There is no minimum period of time you must work before you can reopen that claim - provided that claim has not expired. You can reopen that claim multiple times.

Ok I checked my last claim, and found out my old claim expires end of November 2013. I collected about two months worth of unemployment during that time.

I just filed online with EDD with a new claim?, will this be a problem? Should I call EDD?

You need to call CA to reopen an existing claim.

CA will have to investigate the circumstances of why this temp job ended. Call them tomorrow, Use suggestions on the last few pages of this thread to get through:

You will need to go through this process whenever your claim is closed.
