Hello all, my apologies for chiming in here, but I'm dealing with a similar situation...

I opened an unemployment claim-- in CA, so if there's a sub-forum for questions re: unemployment specifically in that state, please feel free to let me know-- last December, to try to recoup some earnings for the 2 unpaid weeks my company had off for the Christmas holiday. Well in mid-February of this year, our department was outsourced, and we were all laid off (pretty sure I submitted a new claim at that point, but am not entirely sure).

In any event, although I have worked various short-term jobs since then (I'm an entertainment freelancer, so a lot of jobs can be short-term/a few weeks long anyway), I'll note my earnings from those jobs on my bi-weekly unemployment claims, and have been earning some consistent independent contractor/untaxed 1099 work lately, my claim is getting ready to expire this week... so I don't know if unemployment will continue to send me forms or what.

Since I've worked several jobs since then-- some W2, some 1099-- even if I did have to refile/create another unemployment claim, I just don't know WHICH job I'd have to list.

Unfortunately, EDD's website isn't giving me the option to send in questions, and it's nearly impossible to reach anyone on the phone.

Anyone dealt with having a claim expire, and have insight into what I need to do about creating a new one??

Basically, my unemployment earnings are kind of a safeguard if I'm unable to find independent contractor work, so if I'm not able to find work/get injured or something and cannot, I just want to be proactive in case my claim isn't open to help me.
