Why do I need to reopen my claim? Can't I just start certifying again?
No. If you established a claim for benefits with the past year, then stopped filing those benefits, your claim was closed.
If you return to work after filing your original claim, are separated from that employer and wish to resume filing, you must reopen your claim.
