If one is currently receiving unemployment benefits right now, would it be wise to take a job offer that only last 8-9 months? What is the pro and con of accepting a temporary job that only last that long? Would that person be able to reapply for unemployment after that temp job? Location is in CA.

Yes, you can reapply to reopen the old claim. CA will first investigate the reasons that job ended, first.

Have you begun EUC? If so, you will either resume EUC from the first claim, or have a new claim based on those earnings.

If you work for 8-9 months, most likely CA will open a whole new claim when that job ends. If approved, you would first collect the benefits on that new state claim and then revert to what remains of the EUC from the prior claim, if federal legislation still permits - and - provided you are collecting EUC now.

If you haven't begun EUC prior to your benefit year end, and a new, probably smaller/shorter, state claim is opened at some point thereafter, EUC from the first claim is no longer available to you. Second claim may or may not qualify for EUC, depending on base-year earnings.

Disadvantages of working are if you want to quit either to move (unless you have spouse moving for a job) or because you don't like the position, you can't and expect to resume benefits - unless you have good cause for the quit.

CA has a whole section on Voluntary Quits and potential good causes, here:

Voluntary Quit - Table of Contents
