I was laid off June 2012 and began my first state claim that month, with a weekly benefit of $345. I’m currently on extension tier 1, which will expire within the next few weeks and go to tier 2, where the benefit will be reduced to $300 due to the sequester. (For the last 3.5 months I have been working part-time, which is why my 1st extension has lasted so long.) My question is whether or not I can/should file a new state claim and get off the extension tiers once my original state claim reaches the 1 yr mark in a few weeks. I suppose it all depends on how a second CA claim is calculated. If the base period method remains the same, I should be able to include the second quarter of ’12, in which I made about $12k, putting my weekly benefit at the maximum of $450. This is obviously more than the $300 I’d be getting if I stay on the fed extensions. Can anyone tell me if I’ve made some incorrect assumptions about this?
I called over 1000 times, never got through. An edd affiliate told me a supposed secret to get in but it don’t work.It was probably recognized and stopped by them.
I have 3 weeks left on Tier 2 and still have not been contacted for a REA appointment, wonder if anyone has had the same situation?
I webcerted for 2 weeks Sunday but received no payment Monday or Tuesday. I decided to Telecert Tuesday night but only was allowed to file for one week. I’m at the end of Tier 2. My question is will this affect my payment?
I have perused the EDD website, this site, and several others, but have not been able to get clarification about qualifying for a new claim when the current benefit year ends. I have had no earnings during my benefit year and my claim is ending soon. I am on Tier 2. I earned enough in the first two quarters of a new base period to qualify for a new claim (with “leftover” earnings from my employer that laid me off). The weekly benefit amount would be more than my initial claim paid, but I would be eligible to collect for only 23 instead of 26 weeks. Do I need to have “new” earnings during the benefit year of my current claim to qualify for a new claim? Any insight is appreciated. Thank you and good luck to all.
I just found out today I have a $4000 Overpayment due to EDD–which is insane. I did not quit my job as my former employer is claiming.
I’ve been on UI for a year and now this bomb has been dropped on me. I simply don’t have this kind of money (obviously).
What is the process of meeting with ALJ? Is it a small courtroom? Do you meet with him/her one on one? If anyone has done this with their appeal, feel free to post. I am already nervous.
I’m still in shock my former employer did this to me. I moved 25 minutes away by car, but did not quit. It’s a complicated story, but I was damn entitled to those benefits!
My former employer asked if I’d be interested in working for a few weeks over the summer. I’m not sure if it makes a difference but I’d be working in another state.
I’d be working full time hours for a short period and I’m nervous about losing the remainder of my benefits after the job is over and I come back to CA.
Can someone please explain to me how this works? Would I need to start over with a new claim when I come back? Or could I reopen my original claim?
Last night no money I hope we get it tonite!Because I’m hungry tired and have
Bills to pay!God bless everyone!
Will we most likely get paid tonight?
I dropped my claim in the mail box may 11th. Normally would have funds deposited within 5 business days. I should have gotten something by the 17th. It’s now the 21st and all I got was a phone interview letter for the 25th, which is a Sat…weird…
I know last time it was late like this, I filled out the claim wrong and I had wait and refill the form when it finally came in the mail.
So for tier 4, do they hold funds until you do your phone interview? and will this phone interview be like the first one/
