Do I need to fill out a new Florida claim after my credits are gone?
I was laid off as a server in a restaurant in May of 2008. I collected unemployment benefits until Oct.when I found another job. I was laid off 4/19/09 from that job and filled out another claim. When I went online today, 5/11 to get info on my claim, it said a check for $550 has been issued to my account with a balance of $712 in credits.This is leftover from last years claim. And it said that I cannot fill out a new claim until after 5/11/09, one year from my last claim. I didn't know that and already filed a claim on 4/20/09. Do I need to file again?
I'll try to answer, but you need to be a good little claimant and verify with the state because I'm not taking the responsibility:) And you have to promise to report back what you learned .. Please!!
I am quite frankly a little unclear about establishing a new benefit year in this day and age of Emergency Unemployment Compensation.
I quite frankly don't know if you need to start a new claim tomorrow or if emergency benefits will kick in to extend your current benefit year. Question 14 has a phone number to call.Florida's information about EUC benefits.
