New Developments on Federal Unemployment Extensions

Congress and President Obama have reauthorized the federal extensions of Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits for another year, sparing an estimated 400,000 unemployed Californians from losing extension benefits shortly after December 29, 2012.  The EDD will be able to automatically reopen extension claims and send our customers the necessary claim forms they will need to continue certifying for federal extension benefits for those who were claiming such benefits at the end of December 2012. For the complete update, please visit the California EDD website.
