Appeals, identity verification, stuck claims, etc
EDD news releases does not have much relevant news so I did not send a newsletter update last week. Here are the bullet points:
EDD's progress with processing claims here
Updated video of how to apply here
EDD's top FAQ's here
EDD flowchart and breakdown of unemployment programs here
How to reopen your claim:
If it's been within 120 days:
Continue certifying on your already established claim
Select the appropriate week in which you had your hours reduced
Provide eligibility info as required
No need to provide information for the weeks you did full time work -- only give information for the weeks where you lost work and are seeking financial help of benefits
If it's been beyond 120 days:
Click the "ReOpen Claim" button and provide latest employment information EDD is asking for
If your claim is over a year old:
Open a new claim. Apply here
