We have already answered your question.

You were receiving partial unemployment in CA because you had reduced hours

But you never had reduced hours in NY = your hours were low to start with and you still have the same low hours.

- since you have not had a significant reduction in hours, you would not be eligible for NYS UI.

If you get laid off in NYS, then you will be eligible for a small amount of unemployment based on your low income and short time working.

No. that is why. You received reward from the State of California interstate unemployment declare, you've been living in new york. - you received partial unemployment reward from California due on your new pastime having a lot less hours. you've used all of your earnings funds and there is no longer something left to get Now, why you won't be able to get reward in new york: - you're operating, you haven't had a decrease contained in the State of latest york. You all started with low hours and also you nonetheless get low hours = no longer something replaced, so why may you be eligible for something? = at the same time as you've been getting partial unemployment, you've been meant to be searching for yet another pastime that met your hours/earnings from formerly.

In order to be eligible for unemployment in NY, you first need to have separated from employment in NY through no fault of your own.
Then you can apply for benefits in NY.
NY unemployment will be calculated at about 50% on the average weekly wage you earned in NY.
Since the benefit year has passed in California and have no additional benefits there, you would qualify in this scenario.

Why? There is a deadline, and once you hit it, that's it.
As well, you state ... because my hours were low when I first began working in New York." From that I presume your hours are now better, and probably wouldn't qualify at this point.
You need to call the NY DoL Unemployment Office (find the number on their web site) and get an actual answer based on real dates and numbers.

Didn't I answer this already?

You may be entitled to get it eventually.

You are not able to apply for it as soon as you reach the maximum number of weeks in CA.

You are first able to apply for it one year after you applied for benefits in CA.

You can only apply for benefits, anywhere in the U.S., once every 52 weeks.
