No payment

in Where's my Money!?

Telecert on Sunday morning and it’s now Wednesday night and no payment… Anyone else having payment issues?


I know it’s a little off topic, but I had a job interview today and even though it’s rather entry level and half my former executive salary, it felt damned good to meet some nice interviewers and get some speaking experience. I hope you all have some good opportunities come up. I was told I would hear back within 2 weeks for a possible 2nd round of interviews! Praise the Lord!


Okay, this is my first ever time dealing with unemployment. I was laid off from my job on July 13th, however the week prior to this I was on PTO from work, and hadn’t actually been at work since July 6th. I was paid a severance pay for that week from July 13th- July 17th. I filed my claim and was told about the one week wait period, (seemed redundant but whatever fine). EDD then set my start date for my claim as July 26th (not sure how they counted this exactly unless they are using business days M-F but then they started my claim beginning on a Sunday?). But regardless of that, okay so it starts on July 26th it is then. I Waited two more weeks to do my phone interview, and since then have received and completed 2 claim forms (totaling 4 weeks of payments). The dates on the claims forms had the time periods correlating with the claim start date. ( 1st claim July 27th- August 8th, and 2nd claim August 9th -August 22nd). As of today August 25th, I still haven’t been paid, although yesterday my claim was finally approved. Then out of nowhere today, I get a online message from them saying that a week I had already certified benefits for is a waiting period, and will be paid $0. So originally they said I would be paid July 27th- August 8th, now I’m not getting paid July 27th- August 2nd as it’s a waiting period. But will apparently be getting paid August 3rd- onwards.

My question, since I was laid off July 13th, paid severance pay from July 13th- July 17th, then my wait period July 18th- July 26th, how is it my wait period extending now to August 3rd? So 7/18- 8/3 is my 1 week wait period? (Cause that’s way more than a week by my count).

Also how are the dates calculated? (Business days, or based off a 7 day, or is it just a moron literally throws darts at a calendar and that’s how they determine the dates, because I’ve tried to look at this all and I’m yet to detect any patterns or logic to their findings).

And if they did indeed fuck up what can I do?

I went to the bank to withdraw my payment. The EDD card was declined. I went home for the password, and while there called the BofA number for the balance. It was “O”. (I had just been informed that it was $180.) I attempted to solve the problem online, but my password was declined. I attempted to get a new password, but the temp password contained symbols not on my keyboard. After 2 hours of this, I had a hard time restraining myself from assaulting my computer.


X’d Out 2nd Week

Hey All,

I’ve seen some similar posts on this site, but nothing answering my particular question which is this: why is the 2nd week of my claim form X’d out? According to my last EDD payment I still have 3k remaining in the account and am not due to re-file until November. Can anyone shed some light on it? Feel like I need to call in to get an answer, but we all know how impossible of a task that seems to be most of the time.
