i received my last check two weeks ago and then i called to certify through the automatic system and certify for week ending April 16 ...i called Edd and they said i was starting tier 3 starting April 17 and was of 13 weeks... but today i received my check for week ending April 16 with no claim forms and another letter...
Notice of additional second federal extension benefits
legislation signed by President Obama on November 6, 2009, provides up to one week of additional extended UI benefits for the second federal extension. These additional benefits have automatically been filed for you effective 4/10/2011. The maximum benefit amount available to you for these additional second federal extension benefit is $xxx. You will be mailed a one week claim for which you will need to complete and return to the Edd if you would like to collect these benefits.
After you receive these benefits your next federal extension will he filed for you, if you qualify, and you will receive notification and additional claim forms.
in order to receive the additional extended UI benefits you must continue to meet all UI. eligibility requirements.
this letter says was mailed on April 19 2011
and i certify for week ending April 16 on April 21 so I'm guessing that's the additional week they are talking about in this letter? the check i receieved today??
but what i dont get is they had said i was starting tier 3 on April 17 and i was on it already and now i get this letter...
i know best thing is to call edd but is hard tu get through and my local office is far... if anyone knows about this or has been on a similar case i would appreciate your help.
