In Reapply / File a New Claim
My benefit year ended in 2019, and my last extension ended in Dec 2020. EDD first said they would auto-extend PEUX by March 6. When that never happened I called them and they said I had to open a new claim, They helped me to do that, and after a few days passed I was able to back certify. Today I received a letter with a new EDD account number, and register online for an account. to certify. EDD previously said on the phone everything would remain the same, as in my original account. My weeks I just certified for the other day are still listed as pending., as I am waiting for payment. I am not sure what to do, I am hesitant to open a new account as the letter states, as then I will have two accounts. It is so hard to reach them by phone. Does anyone have any info on this?
