same thing happened to me recently since i chose the feb-april period and this is what they replied to me,

"Although you can select an eligibility period as late as the 24th day of that eligibility period, there is no guarantee that you will be assigned that eligibility period, since the processing of your application may not be completed by the 25th day of the eligibility period. If your application is not processed in time to assign the eligibility period you select, you will be assigned to the next available eligibility period, based on the date your application is processed."

so i guess once our new form 186 get accepted, they will assign us a new eligibilty period. anyone else can correct me if im wrong. good luck

from what i understood from the email they sent is that once they get our forms, process and verify them, they will then give us the next eligibilty peroids. call them and confirm this information though, i couldn't call so i just emailed but calling is better. please let me know what you find out, drmum, please.
