Please point me in the right direction with a link or something.

John to answer your question, it should have prompted you to enter the work search req when you claimed weeks online. I am on a new benefit year and have not had to do that yet since my EB was suspended until I exhaust the regular new claim. From the talks I have seen they (AWI) were going to lift this requirement. Anyone else who claimed today that can answer a little bit more definitively? Question

well monday came and I claimed again for two more weeks, and I AM STILL waiting for the last two weeks I have NOT received yet. I placed another call to Josh to find out when I will ever recieve those weeks owed to Me. I am still waiting for a call back. I have bills on hold, bills coming in and no money in which to pay them... Mad

Can you tell me where on their website, or when during the process it gave you the option of filling out your work search record info?

I had to list my work searches, but unlike 2 weeks ago my account updated today and a check has been issued. I only have 2 more weeks of EB left. Could be that because you are new to EB you don't have to list work searches yet, we didn't for the retroactive period, but the whole program was new then, and we weren't formally informed of the necessary procedure until later. It's really hard to say why they didn't ask you for your work searches. They are all screwed up there. I would just keep good records because they will probably find some excuse to hold up your check and make you produce them.

Thank You. I think the IT system has me on the first two week waiver as you suggest and may not have the screen selection. I will see if I get the DD tomorrow night.

Seems that AWI was having off and on issues yesterday. From what I gather from this site and others....some claims sailed right through and others.....did not. I would not hesitate to start calling AWI this morning. Not only do they need to know of these issues...it will also help expedite your claim. Hopefully they will have all the kinks worked out of their "Fred Flintstone" system this week. Let us know how it progress's for you today.

I wasn't given an option to enter my work search records. Did you get a separate screen that just popped up? Below is a copy of my benefits screen and I wondered if yours said "regular unemployment" like mine (even though i am on EB?

The following is current information for your regular unemployment claim:

Your benefit year began on 06/01/08.
Your weekly benefit amount is $275.00.
Your available credits were: $5500.

FYI....

Post  Me From Jax on Tue Aug 25, 2009 10:16 am

Completed my claim this morning online. Just to be safe, I've left a message with Melody. 2 weeks ago I had to call like everyone else and get my claim forwarded to a supervisor before the check was processed. I hope it processes today!! Will let you guys know what happened after 2!

Yeah I claimed my EB weeks this morning, at the beginning it said I would have to add my work search info at the end of the claiming weeks, but after I claimed it gave me no option and said thank you you have claimed your weeks. I was all ready to type in job search info too, what a pain in the ass, I hope it gets processed quick. Should this hinder it even though I was given no option to add info?!

Yes mine says regular unemployment too. When claiming my weeks, it first ask me if I choose to claim the week ending 8/22 as I will have to enter job searches. It asked me that for both weeks. After I answered the standard 4 questions. The screen comes up for you to add your job search info. Hope that helps

CONFUSED

Post  Me From Jax on Tue Aug 25, 2009 12:52 pm

I went back to check my claim info... I made a mistake and clicked "claim weeks" instead of info and it brought me to the claim form... AGAIN...That NEVER happens... It always recognizes that I've already filed my weeks and it will usually say "you have no weeks available"... This is scary, should I re-submit?

Personally, I would, if I were you. That's how I usually check if my claim went through whenever there is a questionable event while claiming, like a computer or connection hiccup. I've actually been interrupted in a claim, gone back in, and it took me to the last page I was on so I could continue. If it lets you go through your claim again, I would do it; it's also possible that it will just come back up to the work search pages right away, so you can complete that part.

Thanks Nancy

Post  Me From Jax on Tue Aug 25, 2009 1:17 pm

Nancy, I called and spoke with someone who told me to not re-submit.. Or at least not now, I was advised to wait and see if it went thru and then if after 2:30 it hasn't I should call back... The system is no longer giving me the claim info, it's processing payments.. My fingers are crossed! Hopefully, this is just some new "hiccup" and everything will process correctly... Update you guys later.

That screen is familiar to many of us from back in July when EB started. I have to assume that you have applied for EB, right?

AWI will be sending you a notice of potential eligibility that tells you that you can apply by mail or online. That notice might take forever, and you don't have to receive it before applying or starting your actual claim. After you apply online (if you haven't actually done this, go here: https://www2.myflorida.com/fluid/eb_default.asp), there is a little wait period before that screen changes.

Again, assuming you've already applied online, there is a time period in which they have to review your application and get your data transferred from the old EUC over into the new EB. During that time some of us saw exactly that "old data" screen, due to your name being newly transferred over or showing up by default in the new database. Once your EB claim is deemed eligible (which it should be, if you had no intervening work), then that screen will show your new EB account balance.

Meanwhile, if it doesn't ask for work search, just go ahead claiming and wait for everything to be updated. If you actually didn't fill out the online or mail in app already, do that at once, and there you will be asked to certify any previous weeks you might have missed on the EB program.

One of the posters here, GonzoFL, went through the EB application process after the start of the program. So he may be able to give further advice, or correct anything I've said that may apply to people claiming EB weeks later than the rest of us here.

Well, No updates for me so far today... Was told by female I spoke to that everything looks OK with my claim but and I'll quote "it is going to take awhile".. I have no idea what exactly that means... I told her that from what I understood the "flagging" of claims was supposed to be over with... Strangly, she agreed and repeated that everything was good with my claim and "it is going to take awhile".. Like I said earlier... I'm going Nuckin Futs.. with this whole thing...

Thank goodness!

Actually I remembered later that it won't bounce you out of the "Claim Weeks" section until you actually put your personal info in--then if you've already submitted weeks it will pop up and say "You have no weeks to claim."

I should have asked you how far you went into the claim weeks menu before exiting before I posted my reply.

I claimed EB for the first time last week and was not asked to input job search info. When I look at my claim info screen, it still says "regular claim" too. All this must normal for now. It might change when i claim again next week...

For anyone just starting EB claims, this notice was included in the revised online certification today:

Please note: the first two weeks you claim for Extended Benefits do not require you to list your work search contacts.

Thank you to everyone, I was able to use your contact info to reach Cassandra who fixed my claim. I had just stumbled on you guys several days ago after a Google search trying to find out why I had not received my DD from 8/10 (the one from 7/25 went through). There's never anything on fluidnow. com, and I hadn't received anything in the mail. Apparently a new benefit year had started in July and she fixed it for me. This after days and days and DAYS of trying to regular 1-800-204-2418 number. I had just about given up an 30 minutes ago when after you pressed "1" for English it wouldn't even let me use "4" and get the "All operators are busy try later CLICK!" it just hung in silence and went back to the main menu. Over and over. I felt so lost and helpless and didn't know what to do. I thought WTH and tried Cassandra's number off of here and she picked up after 2 rings and fixed everything in just a few minutes. I started crying, I just couldn't help it. I'm still crying now. I didn't know how I was going to pay for anything, we are almost out of food, and I put my last $10 in gas. To Jim Stratton and everyone here, thank you thank you thank you.

God Bless You All
