Thanks Doug. I just stopped sending in the weekly certification.
Thanks Doug. I have not yet. I understood that I had to go through the whole application once again to re-open my claim.
Appreciate your help, Doug.
If I do need to fill out the application again to re-open, I my employer that laid me off under "last employer", but where or how would I disclose the 1099 contract job on the app? Would I not disclose it on the application since it wasn't an employer?

Very good - thank you for finding that. So, my list of employers will be identical to my initial application.
One last point of clarification, on page 4 question 20, do I need to disclose self-employment - or my 1099?
