So my UI benefits will run out in March . However, I’ll be starting classes spring semester at my local community college . Does anyone know if I can get an extension on my benefits since I’ll be in school?

employer fired me for my insisting they pay me legally “OVER” the table, not cash under the table.
i know i am eligible for edd money as lost job due to no fault of my own.
but is it hard to get edd $ in this case? take long time?


Hopefully, EDD monitors this site.

I have 2 ongoing and repeating issues. One is repeatedly being locked out of my online access, even a day after changing my password, AGAIN. I’ve been on disability since early November, and have literally not have the same password for more than 3 days before I get locked out and start all over again.

Last night I was issued temporary password; it did not work then and it does not work today, 12 hours later. Locked out again.

Like everyone else, the phone system access is horrible. I’ve been on since 10AM today, 2 hours, and the maximum number of callers is reached. I have called continuously. Is there only one EDD operator?


So I had to mail in my previous claim because I had worked two days of the first week of my claim. I had read somewhere else on here that the fact that you report earnings may delay the payment and I just wanted to double check if that was correct? I’ve been waiting quite a few days now. (Mailed it in the same day I recieved it, last Monday)This is my first time mailing it in, so I wasn’t sure how much that can slow things down?


I recieved my payment on time through web-cert but did not receive my full payment. I Didn’t file any money earned or anything for this period. Anyone else have this problem or know what the problem could be?

Fighting for an Appeal

December 15, 2014 · 1 comment

in ¿Confused?

okay so i’m trying to get my appeal…i’ve filed for my unemployment last month. Only to receive another letter to include a copy of my I.D., Social Security or Birth Certificate. I gave them a copy of my I.D. and Social Security only to receive a letter of an appeal saying that i didn’t turn in any of the 3. So I turn in my appeal a week later I get a call from someone that works at the Los Angeles Adjudication cntr due to the fact that they gave me the wrong social security on my papers. The lady tells me that I will be seein’ a judge to show proof of my identification. Several days later I get another appeal letter saying that I did not turn in any of the papers that they wanted like my I.D., Social Security and Birth Certificate. I tried went to one of the office located near by me they give me a vague answer on what to do. I’ve tried calling them I get no response. I’ve tried emailing them. I get no response. My only idea was going to the LA adjudication cntr but I don’t think they have an address. So I have no idea what the hell to do because they are so vague. They sent me 2 papers to fill out as if I was receiving benefits that I can mail to the authorization center but I’m not sure if its even useful cuz i’m not receiving shit from them. Any ideas what I can do?

You’ve earned my respect –


As an actor, most of my income last year was residuals from past jobs. I claimed these, as I have done in the past, but my best quarter was missing 2 checks. These checks were the largest I received all year and would push my claim from 283 a week, to the 450.
I have sent the check stubs to them. They explained to me that it’s not when I received the checks, but the date they were issued. Is this true? Residuals go through a payroll company, then through the union SAG-AFTRA before being sent to my agency, finally reaching me up to 9 months later. So, the checks I received that quarter, they are simply saying are from a past, non eligible quarter and cannot be added. If this the case, it’s a catch-22. I can’t use the residuals I know about, and am unaware of checks I haven’t received yet that do qualify.
Any info would be great. I would love to appeal.

The GOP House of Representatives worked just 126 days in 2013.
Members made a salary of $174,000.
These same people cut food and UNEMPLOYMENT assistance for millions of people. They said the benefits make them lazy.
