All submitted entries - starting from the most recent

First, to be candid, I received unemployment about ten years ago after being laid off and I don’t recall the process being this difficult back then so either I just have way less patience of they have made it a lot harder.

Anyway, what I need help with is the certification process because it really is a bit confusing.

The long, and short of it, is that I “lost” my job on 11/1 and I applied for UI the next day. I had my UI interview on 11/20 and received approval on 11/28, I probably received the notification around 12/5.

After getting my on-line account set-up I noticed that I can’t certify on-line and I don’t have a paper copy of the form so I have a couple of questions.

First, is it normal not to be able to certify on-line initially or is this something I should be able to do?

Secondly, evidently the job search requirement is applying for three jobs per week, which I haven’t really done just because there are not that many jobs I qualify for in my field, and to be honest, after getting let go after being with my employer for twenty years it took me a bit to get in the state of mind to start applying for jobs. So can I just start with this week or the first week I started applying or do I have to go back to the first week for which they approved me?

Thanks!

CA SDI PAYMENT DATES?

December 13, 2017 · 0 comments

in ¿Confused?

Hello all. My CA sdi claim began on 11/21/2017.

My question is, what dates does CA SDI issue payment. For some reason I got paid 2 times. One payment was issued for 11/28-11/30 and a second payment issued for 12/1-12/5.

Now it says I am on automatic payment? Does that mean my next payment will be 14 Days from my last? (12/5.) Or will I be paid on certain dates?

Thanks!

Recently I filed for IU because i was fired. I had my phone interview and started recieve benefits after certifying. In the process of looking for work which the EDD requires. I went to an old temp agency because I was still currently in there system even though i stopped working for them because i started the job i was fired from. So they sent me on assignment. When i got there i asked the supervisor how long did he think he would need our help. He replied a few days. Me knowing this was not a permanent solution to my problem. I called off because i had interviews for permenant positions elsewhere instead of finishing the rest of the 2 or 3 day assignment that again was going to leave me unemployed. So the edd sent me a letter stating I quit the temp agency and i need another interview to determine eligibility. Im confused because they reason i filed unemployment had nothing to do with this company in the first place. I was fired and that was the reason i was recieving benefits. Ive been calling the temp agency for over 2 months and they havent sent me on a assignment but also stating i quit so they wont pay out my benefits. Im basically stuck not working and not receiving benefits. Was i suppose to be surviving off the temp agency even though they have rarely ever gave me 40hrs a week? Why are they stopping my benefits over a assignment that was only suppose to last a few days anyway. Was i better off just not going to back to the agency and looking for work as the edd requires? Was i suppose to accept the temp work and not try to go to my interviews for permanent employment? It just sucks how they do you smh

Between last Friday and today
Called SDI over 50
Each time SDI disconnected me
Recorded voice states..too many in queue. Really? Yes.
I am not surprised.
What surprises me is that its not a Local News item. But after today it may be.

Ive been on CA SDI since May 2017.My claim end date was originally Dec 31 2018. My doctor wants to extend it. When I called for the extension paperwork first they sent me a whole new application. Then suddenly I get a short payment and a letter telling me I have to see an independent doctor. Who I assume will be biased and try to cut my benefits. From what I read for extensions your personal doc just fills out the extension paperwork. Why am I being singled out for to see this EDD doctor??? Do they usually cut your benefits? Should I still have my regular doctor fill out the paperwork? I had never heard of this BS. I thought when your claim was up they sent an extension form. Why is this happening? What should I expect
