Hi, I'm sorry if this is a repeat question, I've tried searching and read some similar posts but everyone's case seems to be unique. I'm in California and was laid off Oct 2012. I didn't immediately apply for UE benefits as I tried to find another job first but didn't have much success. I finally applied for UE in Dec 2012, my employer fought my claim (he fights all claims) but I was found eligible and began receiving UE in Feb 2013. I was only employed there for eight months, I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

My continued claim form I receive shows my claim is expiring in Sept 2013, but the funds will run out before then in Aug. I'm a little confused as to what happens from here; is my claim automatically extended? Do I have to do anything? Am I even eligible? Or does everything completely stop next month or in Sept? I've checked the EDD website and it only says "if I am eligible," which I'm not sure if I am.

Thanks for any help everyone

If the base-year earnings in your claim are the result of 20 weeks' work - or - excess of 40x your weekly benefit - or - 1.5x your high quarter earnings, you are eligible for federal extension benefits (EUC).

CA will automatically transfer you to EUC when you have exhausted state benefits.

Sounds like you had a full 26-week claim. To the end of the year, you can expect to receive:

14 weeks - Tier 1
14 weeks - Tier 2

subject to a sequester reduction of 17.69%. Under current legislation, all federal benefit payments end December 28, 2013, regardless of remaining balance.

CA is also paying 9 weeks Tier 3 - but for you to collect that, Congress needs to extend the legislation. CA will be triggering off Tier 4 on August 11th, so those benefits will not be available next year unless CA's UE rate rises to 9%.

I'm sorry I have one more question.. Since my claim expires in September, but it's still July and funds will run out before the claim expires, does EDD not do anything until Sept? Or is it when the funds actually run out?

As I told you earlier,

You are eligible for EUC immediately upon exhaustion of state benefits. Your bye is irrelevant to that process, provided you exhaust state benefits before the bye. At your bye, CA will do an automatic recertification of your claim. You will get confusing correspondence on that. In most cases, if you have not worked during your first benefit year, your EUC will continue, but you may very likely receive a notice of UI Award and then a notice of invalid claim, possibly in reverse order. In the end, you will continue on EUC.
