If you meet eligibility requirements for FED-ED extension, EDD will automatically transition you into a FED-ED claim and send you a notification through the mail
How do I figure out if I am eligible for FED-ED?
I'm currently on FED-ED - is there any changes for me?
EDD is required to recalculate the award to the maximum of 13 weeks. Any weeks paid out more than 13 weeks will not be considered an overpayment
I don't need to apply for FED-ED/extension until on or after December 27. How many weeks is the extension?
Those applying on or after December 27 will be eligible for up to 13 weeks rather than 20 due to funding form the CARES Act expiring
