I didn't realize that I had a work requirement to keep my unemployment benefits. I thought the whole purpose of unemployment was to give you a lift until you found a job.
Well, now it looks like I need to file an appeal to see if they will reinstate my benefits. I have a few more weeks of UI benefits under my 2nd extension before I've expended my UI benefits. What can I do to get my benefits reinstated at this point?
At the bottom of my notice it states that "any unemployment insurance claim you file will be invalid under section 1277 until January 2010 at which time this test will no longer apply". Does this mean my benefits will be reinstated in january? Why January?
