  4. With regard to Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC) reversion, how would this work and where would a reversion claim be cut off from filing? For example, if a claimant has a September 2007 claim and a September 2008 claim. The claimant collected their UI entitlement on the 2007 claim and was captured in our reach back and had their EUC filed effective 7/6/08.Then, they reached their BYE date and we filed them an eligible 26-week September 2008 claim. They exhausted their 2008 UI entitlement approximately at the end of June 2009. We “reverted” them back to the 2007 claim and allowed them to finish collecting their 22 weeks of eligible EUC; however, the claimant had some partials, which carries them to December 26, 2009 as their last CWE on the “reverted” claim. In this scenario, is the claimant eligible to go back to the more recent claim and file EUC on that claim after the December 20, 2009 date?
