I did not receive my expected $900 dollar bi-weekly UI payment today (July 3rd, 2015). Is anyone else having problems? The only thing I can figure that messed this up is the following. I had a mandatory “Introduction to Services Workshop” scheduled for June 19th. I arrived exactly 2 minutes late, and was not allowed in. I was told to simply come the following week for the group appointment. I came the next week and completed the workshop. I found in my mailbox yesterday(July 2nd) a letter that required me to state why I missed the June 19th appointment. I sent them back the letter today stating I had arrived late, but attended the workshop on the 26th. The letter was the typical financially-scary letter about stopping benefits etc… Could this possibly have stopped my benefits even though since the letter was sent I did, in fact, go to the appointment? The staff at the career center made it seem like it was no big deal, nothing to formally reschedule, and my understanding is EDD should have on record I attended, albeit a week late. I’m very dependent on this money and am about to be homeless without it! I submitted my 2 week certification on Tuesday, today is Friday. Anyone else not get paid today? Very worried…

I haven’t been on unemployment in a while, but I remember the money showing up by Thursday morning if I certified Sunday by phone. I haven’t received anything yet and was wondering if anyone else was having problems. I didn’t see a Post When Paid thread for this week.

Also, I realized that my BoA debit card is expired. I already ordered a new one, but while I wait, will I be able to get my money from the bank if my card expired in June?

So we have no rights even when we pay for our unemployment insurance. Informed EDD that I would be hired back by my previous employer and should be proceeding with the background check. Reply from EDD was you don’t know that you will pass the background check. To me that is grounds for harassment.

Ive had some really wierd dealing with edd in the past years ago when I had it so I know some tricks and how they are.
well the 5th when I was fired from my employer for cussing , after absolitely no write ups or anything and being one of their top producers . I dont think they liked I was documenting so much .

Anyways last time I filed last year my employer was having me ilegealy call the federal dnc , calling it their black opps call list and I even had email and full convos and contacts to speak with … I was denied then back in oct 2014 no time for appeal

now back june 5 th 2015
I duely filed for unemployment online very confident again in my outcome but weary because last time they didnt even ask for supporting doc and denied me initially “I assume ” because my employer lied . Well this time I had my interview i actually had a really nice convo with two ladys at edd . they were even wondering why I would not be approved the last time …
So needless to say I feel very confident my out come will be positive even though I need to exhuast the old claim before I can start the new one giving me much less money .

im confused becuase I recieved an edd payment for one week last friday and obviously thats a good sign but its tuesday now and no info beyond that ….

Im asking here to rule out the idea they may simply be having issues with this and it doesnt mean anything .

But ill be happy to hear psitive news that most likely that means all is well .

Has anyone recently contacted EDD and heard they are having computer issues. I have(d) two claims. I was laid off twice, both same time of year. I filed my new claim on June 15 after getting laid off the previous Friday. My notice of award and a one week form form first week only came right away. A couple days after I got a claim for for old claim as I still had a small sum left. So my old form showed up and was mailed after more recent and newer claim. Supposedly you can skip the one week waiting if you are in my situtation. But now my forms received out of order, it doesn’t seem to be case. Usually I get my value load notice about 9 something in evening, but I have not yet. And that form for one week was received on Thursday, but here it is Monday and still waiting. I called Friday as well and they had some computer issue, called today and they had another. Still waiting :( It seems you are screwed when you work at all even just temp jobs of 5 hours or so a week as always something holding them up

I used to receive UI last year between 04/2014 to 07/2014. The payments stopped because I began employment and my paychecks were higher than my benefit amount, I understand that. I lost that job in January of this year and applied for UI about a month later in February. After waiting for about 3 weeks with no response, I contacted EDD via Email. I did not receive a response to the email but a week later got a letter stating I was denied UI because I missed my phone interview. I emailed EDD again and explained that I was never informed about my phone interview and that it was very unprofessional to blame me for their error. Again, I did not receive a response so then I reapplied for UI. I did receive a response about 10 days later saying that they can reopen my last application if I send in my last two paystubs (January) from my last employer. I sent them in and about 2 weeks later I receive another letter stating that I am now being paid benefits. I receive two biweekly payment and did not get any continued claim forms or any more payments for almost a month. I emailed EDD, no response. Emailed them again, and then got two emails in one day, both stating the same: That my UI claim had expired and that I need to reapply if I want to keep receiving payments. I emailed EDD again and told them that this is a mistake because how can a claim expire after only a month. Their response email said that I had requested to reopen that claim from last year (04/2014) and that claim is now expired. They went back a whole year, but when I applied in 02/2015 and 03/2051, I wanted a new claim because I earned more wages on my last job than I did from the job I had last year. Just to cover my own bases, I applies again for the third time about 3 weeks ago and again I am being ignored. I want to make a complain to the supervisor but EDD always hangs up on me when “transferring” me.
