The issue in GetHuman4879005's own words
I am trying to submit a new claim for unemployment but I cannot submit the claim because I have a claim that expired in April. The website tells me I need to submit a new claim, but when I attempt to do so I receive a message that states, "You currently have a claim being processed and cannot file a new claim at this time". I am stuck in a loop because I cannot reopen my previous claim or submit a new claim because of my previous claim. I have been trying to reach the EDD for weeks now. I am very frustrated at this point. I am hoping I will get back pay for this because it is not my fault that their website is inexcusably glitchy.
I would like EDD to fix the glitch on their website so that I can submit my new claim for UI. I would also like to receive payment for the weeks that have passed by since I first attempted to file a claim.
