I AM CLAIMING UNEMPLOYMENT AND FORGOT TO RENEW THE DEMAND, WHAT CONSEQUENCES COULD HAVE ON MY UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFIT?

To receive unemployment benefits is mandatory register as a jobseeker and renew the demand while gaining such benefits.

If you forget to renew the demand will start a punitive procedure for minor infringement that can cause you the loss of a month of benefit. If not renew it again for a second time, will lose three months. If it repeats a third time, will lose six months, and if not for the fourth time renews, you will lose the benefit.

For these cases of recidivism is not necessary that the default is always the same type (in this case, not renew the demand for labor). Therefore, apply this scale from the first offence, when between a minor offence and the previous have not been over 365 days.
