I worked for the company for number of years, was laid off in Aug 2011 and put on the disability (state CA) by my doctor later that month. I’m finally getting better after all treatments etc. and disability will end at the end of June. Am I eligible to file unemployment right after my disability runs out? Should I actually file for UI before or after my disability runs out? It’s really frustrating, but I can not find any information on the EDD website as for when is the last day to file for UI after the layoff. It only says “file immediately”. Browsing the web though I found some information, that I need to file for UI "prior" to my SDI expiring in order to lock in my base period. Is that true?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
