I was lai off in April 26, 2013 and received unemployment benefits. I receiving my first tier extension until the benefit expired last Dec 28, 2013. There was about a $2,700 balance in the said extension.
I received a letter saying I could still get a waiting period credit for the week ending 01-02-2014 if I called or filed a new claim with EDD 1 to 5 days before 01-02-2014. Unfortunately I was out of town looking into opportunities offered by a friend, and I was not able to see the letter until after 01-02-2014.
Is there a way for me to still avail of this credit even if I was not able to file based on the instruction? Whether or not I could, would this affect my eligibilty for extension credits if Congress does approve funding for the federal extensions?
