I'm so lost, I'm not even sure if this is the right forum to ask this. I was in the regular UI track, but my benefits ran out in September. This is because I'm typically a freelancer, but had one W2 job back in early 2019, forcing me into the UI track (as opposed to PUA).
Because of this I had very little actual UI benefits, and exhausted them by September, so I didn't re-certify. Now that this new act as passed, I tried to re-certify, but it says there is nothing for me to certify. My UI balance is at $0.
It says to wait two weeks and check back. But I'm nervous, because what happened last Spring is every time they told me to wait, I would, but not to worry, I would get backdated benefits. That never actually happened. Now I'm worried it's happening again. I feel so stuck.
