My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California
I just received a notice that I was ineligible to receive federal extension (emergency unemployment) benefits because I had not earned in excess of 40 times my weekly benefit or 1.5 times highest quarter for my base period.
After reading through the handbook again, I think I should have filed using a different base period. I was working part-time at a CA State University and was laid off in September 2010. However, I continued to work on a project-by-project basis until December 2011. I had far fewer hours during 2011 than I did in 2008-2010 and think I should have used September 2010 as my termination date. Is there any way to remediate this?
