NYS unemplyment- What do I do if I missed claiming my benefits one week and have they passed another unemployment extension yet?
(Selden, NY US)
I currently have unemployment benefits and I claim my benefits every Sunday. I thought I claimed them 2 Sundays ago but apparently I did not. Am I able to go back and claim benefits for that week that has already passed?
Also, is it true that unemployment is being extended again- and for how long?
It's high doubtful you will be able to go back and claim for the weeks you missed and get them .. because you did not claim "timely" .. and your reason "forgot" would not be good cause for the untimelness.
The bill to pass another 13 week unemployment extension for states with high unemployment?? has passed the house, but the senate is holding it up. Read more on Open Congress.
