Hi Everyone! My story below:
May 12th: Laid off from job - received 2 weeks severance. I immediately reopened my previous unemployment claim from less than a year ago (as it was still within the "benefit year").
May 17th: Nothing on UI online and re-opened my claim again.
May 24th: same thing as above.
May 31st: UI online notes my claim is "pending".
June 2nd: Can finally certify this week online!
Certify every week in June.
June 23rd: Received one week of benefits on edd card.
June 27th: UI online sends message saying that I am not eligible for benefits on week ending 06/07 as this is my one week "waiting period".
Now, per the website image I'm attaching, I cannot certify again until after 07/12 (next weekend).
My questions are:
1. I thought the one week was waived? And what about all the weeks in May - did those not qualify as waiting weeks because my employer gave 2 weeks severance?
2. Why no more payments for June? Are there additional waiting periods?
3. Is this all happening because I re-opened a previous claim instead of filing a new one? Help please!
