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