Why do they count my UIB claim as an extension (CA)?

by Anonymous

Applied for UIB after being fired. They sent me a denial for an extension for a claim I had approx 10 months ago saying not enough funds.. They are looking at income received in 2007 instead of 2008 where I worked more. Since last receiving UIB I have worked 5 months at one job & 4 at the one I was fired from. HOw do they call it an extension?

Hi Anonymous,

I'm not really sure why they're calling it an extension because it sounds like the same benefit year to me, so I'm unsure about this part of your question.

But if you initially filed ten months ago .. the reason they are looking at wages in 2007 is because that would have been part of your "base period" or the period of time that's looked at to establish the weekly benefit amount.

It would be helpful to know which month you filed that original claim, but for the sake of argument I'm going to say it was in July of 08.

The base period is relevant to the date you filed the claim. If you filed in July of 2008 which is the 3rd quarter your base period would be 4/1/07 through 3/31/08. It's the first 4 of the last 5 COMPLETED quarters. If you had filed in June it would have been 1/1/07 through 12/31/07.

You can find the minimum wages to be found monetarily eligible for unemployment in California under Monetary Eligibility Table 3-3

Extension Denied, EDD says I don't have enough funds
by: Anonymous

I have used up my initial 26 weeks. EDD is now saying I don't qualify for the extension because I don't have enough funds. However, they sent me an appeal form. What do I say in that appeal?

Hi Anonymous,

I don't know. I honestly didn't think extensions required you to have funds left .. that's what extensions are for .. "exhaustion of unemployment benefits".

The first question the came to mind was to ask if your benefit year ended before the extension was filed for ..

Call the EDD and ask why you need "funds" for an extension.
