"To Socrateaser" - Thank you for your expertise answer. How would this 'wage adjustment' impact my Unemployment insurance award? My claim is for 09/2012 - 09/2013. Even the audit took away my Dec 2011 & Mar 2012 wages and lowered my highest quarter earnings, but with Jun 2011 & Sep 2011 I still have wages added up to 62,507.67,my maximum benefit amount is still the same $11,700 for 09/2012-09/2013. Does the insurance award based on each quarter or the past 4 quarters. Am I safe to receive benefit up to 11,700? (weekly $450)? Thanks a lot!
"To Socrateaser" Just received one notice with 'Determination of invalid claim, section 1277', siting I have not received wages during 9/18/11-9/15/12, hence my new claim was denied.
Conflictingly also received an 'amended unemployment insurance award' with weekly benefit amount of $450, based on the 4 quarters wages (have wages on Jun & Sept 2011 quarters, but not Dec. Mar.2012 quarters). Sept 2011 I have wages, but not after 9/18/2011.
With the invalid claim, the insurance award most likely would not happen. Should I then just count on my original federal extensions? I have received UI since Oct. 2011 and went thru 1 extension. On EDD website, it indicated all extension will end on 12/29/2012. Should I accept that fact or is there any action plans?
