Good morning Blake, I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Congratulations on your temporary position offer. Hopefully that will lead to full time employment for you. If you have been offered a temporary position that will only last 3 months, then you may suspend your unemployment and at the end of the 3 months just file your regular claim for unemployment benefits and the benefits will pick up where they left off. So long as you are not in a new claim year at that point---which would be more than a year after you first started receiving unemployment, then you won’t have to file a new claim. Just let EDD know that you will be working a temporary job so that you don’t receive benefits while you are working. That would create a big problem for you. If you have additional questions, you may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link. Please also keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
