I have a question around reactivating or starting a new claim.
I was approved for EI in May (applied end of March) and received 8 weeks before I started a new job. the job is only a contract for 6 months. I still have 10 weeks remaining on my claim, so after 6 months should I just reactivate and have 10 weeks. or should I start a new claim and possibly get another 18 weeks (I would have worked the same number of hours again as my last claim).
If I reactivated my claim I assume it would be quicker to get the money, but would the hours I have worked in my current contract (will be over 1000) then be lost forever?
so would it be worth just starting another claim and getting the max weeks I can?
