I was originally out of work in November 2019. I filed for unemployment and got the PEUC which ended late last year when I exhausted the benefits. This year I applied for PUA because I had a job lined up last March that was lost because of Covid. The EDD denied my claim stating that I hadn't worked during the right time period. I filed an appeal because I had one week's earnings during the period in question which began 11-1-19 and enough income to meet their standard. That was a month ago... I still haven't heard back.
Now I'm wondering if I should be reapplying for PEUC because I may qualify under the new federal legislation. The question is when I apply do I say I'm out of work because of COVID or leave the disaster Information page blank?
