Collecting CA unemployment extension, but elligible for new claim in State of FL, now they want repayment in CA

by Eric
(FL)

I was receiving unemployment from CA while living in FL, because the majority of time prior to being laid off, I lived in CA. After the first six months ran out, I filed for and received an extension from CA for another six months. Now they tell me they want the entire $9,000.00 back, because I was supposed to file a new claim in FL instead of filing an extension in CA. Why did the not tell me this six months ago? FL tells me that I can't file retroactively. So am I totally screwed?





Eric,

I didn't notice anywhere that you mentioned you had employment in Florida. When was that?

In fact, don't bother answering that rhetorical question. You either left out a whole bunch of information .. or the State of California isn't bothering doing combined wage claims .. when they know there are wages in more than just California. Shame on them if this is true.

This isn't a problem that I can even begin to figure out with a free Q&A.

I worked for the same company 13 years, from 1999 until 11-2008 I was a CA resident and worked there. I moved to FL in 11-2008 and was laid off in 02-15-09. I worked for the same company in a different capacity as a FL resident for approximately 3 months. Since the majority of my UI benefits were paid while in CA, I filed for CA UI, not to mention that it is nearly double that of FL. CA UI has no issue with the first six months they paid to me from 02/09-07/09. CA has an issue with me filling an extension for UI in August of 2009, because according to them I qualified for a "New" claim in Florida. Of course they tell me this now, and not seven months ago when I filled out the paperwork. Now they want to be repaid the entire amount of $9,000.00. If I were allowed to retroactively file for the same period in FL, it would not be a total loss, at least I could get about $5,000.00 from FL. However, FL UI office told me that I was not allowed to file retroactively.


Like I said .. I think CA is full of shit.
