I have already exhausted 13 weeks of PEUC and 13 weeks of FDEB1. Will I need to reapply for the 11-week extension on February 7?

On February 7, if your benefit year has expired, you will see "Apply for Benefits" on your homepage. If found ineligible for a new standard claim, you will go back to your previous PEUC claim to certify with the 11-week extension under CAA. If found eligible for a new claim, you will stay on the new standard claim and continue with weekly certifications. If your benefit year has not expired, you will see a "Reopen" link on February 7.

Will certifications/payments for PUA be retroactive from December 27?

Yes, if a claimant is eligible for benefits they may request a backdate to the week of December 27, 2020. Each eligible certification week starting with the week of December 27 will also include the additional $300 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) payment.
