Good Golly! That makes sense .. not.
Have you filed for the second benefit year in Colorado? I'm having doubts that two months worth of work in Colorado will monetarily qualify you, but it's worth a shot due to the combined wage reference.
My guess is that this is all due to those people in Washington DC who squabbled over passing another extension until Nov of 09 and then they went and passed it with a deadline glitch that is forcing the states to make people requalify for a second benefit year .. which isn't possible to do unless you do have subsequent wages after the initial benefit year.
Sure, appeal, I'd be interested to know what the decision says and if it explains the problem any better than the determination.
Sorry Scott. Extensions are not my forte. There's never been extension until this recession that have lasted so long .. unprecedented is bound to cause problems.
By the way I have linked to an article somewhere in the Q&A's which explains the "deadline glitch" as it has come to be known. A congress F**K UP is more like it.
If you were looking for information from someone who's tried .. nobody has reported back as of yet.
