I suggest do not give up calling . I had maximum benefits on my acct and when its time for me to certify last Sunday its said reopen so I did but after I filled up lots of questions and hit submit it was said certify on Jan 24. So this morning I called edd and fortunately an hour waits finally talked one lady. Asking my infos and in 3 minutes she said I can certify now. So do not give up keep I had my 2 weeks paid and the 300 boost per week. Goodluck. I am in California BTW.

I haven’t tried in forever, but the last time I did I used a speed dial app and it took about 25 minutes to actually get through and then I waited for a rep for another 45min to an hour. Suggestion: Let them ask you all the questions before you start asking yours, but of course have your questions ready to go. I kept thanking her profusely and I truly believed it encouraged her to do a more thorough job. It he other reps I spoke with really didn’t care and didn’t investigate like she did. That’s all it takes is one diligent work we willing to go the extra mile. Hang in there Constance. I’ll pray and send positive energy your way. #Pennsylvania

Hi I was going through a similar situation. I had a message saying something like "I had used up the maximum amount of my benefits on my claim and was unable to apply until for a new claim until the current year ended", I was going nuts, up until Tuesday night...

I woke up yesterday at 9 am an checked my UI acct.... I was ecstatic, my weekly amount plus the $300, for 2 weeks was there. I immediately certified my weeks an PAYMENT was in my debit card early this am

I hope this eased a little stress off you

The Extensions were supposed to only be until the end of December from what I remember seeing on the news. So if you had an extension from your original claim send that may be why you didn’t get any more as of 2021. I know this happened with a family member as well.
