After one year of unemployment in texas I received a letter saying we cannot pay you. Then it said apply for benefits!

I've been on unemployment since dec 14 08 now on dec 14 09.


I received letter saying no benefits. Why does it say this. Do I have to reapply?

Hi John,

Regardless that extension benefits that have made the typical duration of benefits way longer than a year for many, a unemployment claim and it's base period used to determine the maximum weekly benefit amount that could last up to the typical 26 weeks of being totally unemployed, only last one year. A claim has a begin date (BYB) and an end date (BYE).



If you've been collecting unemployment for a year .. you've likely been receiving extension benefits for a while now as the balance anyone draws from equates to 26 weeks which are collectible between the BYB and BYE.

But when the extraordinary and unprecedented happens, such as it has with extended benefits, still when one benefit year ends a second has to begin and establish your right to continue collecting extension benefits.
