This is the last california edd unemployment, news release before benefits are set to expire. This saturday september 4th, and in this news release, the edd announced that over 2 million californians will be losing all of their unemployment benefits. When the pua unemployment program and the peuc extensions end this saturday and an additional 500 000 people will be losing the 300 weekly boost, so they will have reduced incomes after this saturday september. 4Th remember if you are on a pua unemployment claim that is going to say, program, type, disaster, assistance or dua under your program type, if youre on the peuc extension that is possibly going to say extension tier 2 or extension tier 2 augmentation. Those programs all end. This saturday september 4th the 300 boost and your weekly benefit amount. If that is your program type, if your program type says fed ed, that will continue through the week ending september 11th as long as you havent used all 13 weeks of benefits. Yet there is a possibility if you qualify to be rolled over onto the fed ed program that is supposed to happen automatically. If you qualify for it, but again thats only one extra week of benefits. It will not include the extra 300 a week boost and there is still no mention of an unemployment extension happening. If your program type says i you will be able to collect benefits until your claim. Balance hits zero, but again after saturday september 4th.
It will no longer include that extra 300 weekly boost the exact number of people who are set to lose their unemployment benefits. This saturday is 2.2 million people just in the state of california, that will be losing all of their unemployment benefits and just to kind of put that in perspective, californias total population, including children, babies, kids under 18, people who are retired. Our entire population is ‘.5 million people and for 2.2 million of us to be losing our unemployment benefits, that is one out of every 18 people that you see walking along the street. One out of 18 of those people is not going to be getting. Unemployment benefits anymore and when we add in the half a million people that are going to be losing the extra 300 weekly boost. That number increases to 1 in 15 people who are going to have a reduced income as a result of our government. Not extending unemployment benefits and in terms of dollars and money, the loss of the 300 weekly boost alone will mean 810 million dollars less in income per week, or about 3.5 billion dollars a month in lost income, because the federal government hasnt extended our unemployment benefits. Those numbers are truly devastating when i hear them, but again i dont want you guys to lose hope. I want us to take action. Please tweet at gavin, newsom use the hashtag extend edd. Please sign jenny silvers petition to gavin newsom trying to bring attention to the fact that we need to extend unemployment benefits.
I will link that for you guys in the description down below and lets get into the california edd news release. I will screenshot it up above and i will link the edd news. Release in the description down below the edd, reminds californians about ending federal unemployment programs and highlights other vital benefits that continue. Sacramento edd continues to remind californians that most federal, extended unemployment programs expire september. 4Th and the federal state extended duration fed ed extension ends september 11th september. 4Th 2021 at 11. 59 pm is the expiration for most federal unemployment benefits, pandemic unemployment assistance, pua pandemic emergency unemployment, compensation, peuc pandemic, additional compensation, pac also known as federal pandemic unemployment. Compensation fpuc supplement thats. The extra 300 a week boost mixed earner, unemployment, compensation m e. U c thats the extra 100 a week boost to those who qualified who had mixed income due to w 2 wages and self employment federal rules allow those who still have fed ed weeks available to continue receiving benefits as late as 11 59 p.m. On september 11, 2021. Similarly, if a claimants peuc benefits end september 4th and that person has not already had a fed ed extension and now qualifies for, one edd, will transfer them to fed ed until september 11th, and they have said in a tweet that that will happen automatically. But with the edd weve seen it not happen automatically in the past, so it wouldnt. Surprise me if we need to call to have that extension added, if you think you might be eligible claimants, should continue to certify for benefits if eligible any weeks of unemployment that occurred before these programs expire can still be paid retroactively.
If a claimant is later determined to be eligible for those weeks of benefits, so if you have pending weeks for dates prior to september, 4th the edd should still pay you out on those as long as they find out that youre eligible it just might not happen Before the programs officially end, they can still pay you out on those later. The federal government does not allow benefit payments for weeks of unemployment, after federal unemployment programs end even if claimants have balances left on their claim. So that doesnt mean that your pending weeks, prior to september 4th wont be paid. But it does mean that, even if you have a balance on your claim, if you are paid out under any of the program types that are expiring, you will not have access to their claim balance to collect any of that money and the edd will not be Paying it all out in a lump sum either that money is essentially forfeited and returned to the government and its the federal government that doesnt allow them to continue to pay out your claim, even if you have a claim balance so its not something that the edd Just decided not to pay us on that is mandated by the federal government that theyre not allowed to do that. A person who has no income in the past 18 months does not have enough wages to qualify for a new, regular state unemployment. Insurance claim edd has a calculator to estimate any potential benefit available.
I know a lot of you are wondering once these programs end. Can you just file a new claim and you wont, be able to file a new claim or even try to file a new claim until your benefit year is over? But if you havent had any wages these last 18 months, youre also not going to qualify for a new claim and if you are self employed or a gig worker. Those benefits arent available. Because that was made possible by the pua unemployment program, which is ending on saturday, so unless youve had w 2 wages in the last 18 months, you wouldnt qualify for a new claim. The federal programs extending unemployment benefits in california expire for an estimated 2.2 million people. Another approximately 500 000 californians will continue on regular state unemployment insurance, but without the 300 federal pac supplement edd is sending claimants whose federal benefits are ending a second round of notices this month with links to other vital benefit programs that continue beyond september. 4Th additional public benefit programs, while the federal programs extending unemployment benefits in california expire. This month, the american rescue plan and california comeback plan substantially expanded other vital benefits that continue to help eligible california. Families edd is supporting a partnership hashtag together. We benefit with other state agencies and departments and county and community organizations to actively raise awareness about these other benefit programs. Guys. Please explore these programs as well. Please dont be embarrassed to reach out for help if youre confused about how to get this help.
