Hello and welcome,
Time requirements for filing new, additional, reopened, partial, and continued claims may be extended for "good cause," based on the criteria set forth in Title 22, Section 1326-10(a). The Appeals Board and the courts have provided additional guidance.
Title 22, Sections 1326-10(b) and 1326-10(c), discuss termination of "good cause" for extending time requirements.
See the following link for more information as to what constitutes good cause (Section C):
Proscrastination or negligence will not typically be excused as good cause, so you will need to provide a reasonable explanation, such as you recently moved and there was a delay in your mail being forwarded to you, or you were out of town unexpectedly. Otherwise, the commission is likely to deny your benefits for the period in question I'm afraid.
