EI - should I have my EI claim resubmitted

I would ask EI this myself but getting through to speak to someone is impossible. Basically Thursday of last week (April 2, 2020) was my last day of work. My employer just submitted my claim today and had put Friday (April 3, 2020) as my last day of employment. Since the amount of EI benefits that you are to receive is based on how much income you made that week that I would probably get nothing as I have already worked four days or 32 hours and will receive $950 from my employer for that week anyway that there would be no point to resubmit my claim?

Do not resubmit your claim. The system will ask you how much you were paid that week, and you tell them $950. You just won't get paid for that week.

That's assuming you aren't automatically put on CERB. Most people will get more from CERB than EI, but people making like $55,000 per year will get more from EI. CERB won't ask for such info until later (probably). If that is the case would sit on that $950 in case they ask for it back later.
