I have been receiving unemployment benefits since January of this year. All my forms that I receive in the mail clearly state that my claim expires several months from now.
Today I got a simple letter in the mail stating that " I have received all benefits payable under my claim." Also that I "may qualify for extended benefits and if I qualify, the claim will automatically be filled. No action is needed on my part." What the heck??

Sorry if this is a no brainer to others - but this all of this is so confusing to me! I'm really trying to stay on top of everything and still looking for a job - is this letter something I need to be concerned about? What does this notice mean? Does it mean I'm transitioning to a different "tier" or something? I have only just heard about tiers when I started digging for info on this letter online today.

Thanks for any help, advice or ideas!

You really need to familiarize yourself with the CA website and educate yourself on the benefits to which you are entitled. Your financial survival depends on it.

Apparently, you have never, in the past seven months, checked the CA page on benefits?

New Federal Unemployment Insurance Extensions

The fact that your claim expires in a few months is NO GUARANTEE you will receive benefits to that date. The expiration date means you have until that date to collect all your State of CA benefits - not that payments continue to that date.

Your CA claim provided a certain monetary amount for State of CA benefits. It appears you have now received all that money.

If your claim qualifies for the federal extensions (EUC), CA will automatically transition you to that. Your benefits will continue, less the 17.69% sequester reduction. Please read the above link carefully.

CA will send you a letter on your monetary determination and new claim forms for Tier 1 when your transition is complete. Probably within a week or so.

Again, be aware, your benefits will be reduced 17.69% going forward.

Or better yet, you have never looked at the CLAIM BALANCE on the top of every claim form? It clearly tells you how much you have left on the claim....
