Hi all

I am 22 weeks into my unemployment and have 1 month left, do they still offer extensions for unemployment or has that ended?

I never got notice in the mail that I had a phone interview today. Three , yes three, years after a retail giant laid me off from seasonal work they just NOW tell EDD I was fired due to misconduct. First, that’s not true. Second, this store paid me a settlement technically “admitting” wrongdoing and I was laid off. I was seasonal. So now EDD gets notified I was fired due to misconduct. Wtf? I told my interviewer everything but you know how EDD is. I’ve been through the Overpayment mess before and couldn’t sleep..but I won in 2013.

So now here I am again dealing with this. Corporate faxed the Interviewer who I spoke with a letter stating I’m eligible for rehire, but that was it.

Isn’t there a cap on how long EDD can come back demanding an Overpayment. This was in 2012 for chrissakes.

Ok let’s start here why is there no one at EDD who does the phone interviews without a heavy accent? I live in a multi-diverse area and I could barely understand what she said, but I’ll digress.

So I was on unemployment for about 6 months after working my previous job for 3 years. In late October after sending countless resume I was picked up as a part-time (at-will) employee for this company. The money was ok but the hours were super short and in the end they didn’t end up paying me what they owed me. I had to go to the Labour department to file against them and by that time I had quit. I barely worked there two months. After going all of Dec and Jan without any kind of payment because they couldn’t figure out that I worked a job and then had to quit it. I had only recently started receiving payment again less than $400 to be exact when I receive the dreaded phone interview letter yesterday. Now I have another freaking interview even though I have discussed what happened to like 5 phone representatives who reassured me nothing was wrong. I mean EDD encourages you to find a job and I did so now I’m being punished for it because it didn’t pan out. The phone interviewer left me voicemail and even said I would be dropped altogether if I didn’t do this new phone interview. She said she is trying to determine who my second to last employer was o.0. Like WHAT??? I started a new job and now you’re trying to figure out after all this time who I worked for before. Do these people have records? Or a database? It seems like if anything that is not uniform comes across their desk they just deny it. I mean who else wants their job? I wish I only had a workload for two hours and could bullsh*t the rest of the day. I just want to get this over this and go to my job interview on Monday. Anything is better than this.

I have had a claim open since 5/2014. During that time I have been working, if not very underemployed. I have continued to submit claims every week, reporting all my earnings. The last gig I worked at for 1 month, the manager telling me on the third week that she didn’t feel it was working out, mainly because I had been late twice, indefensible. I know, but it was right around Christmas time. I agreed with her, as I didn’t much care for the job because it was all phones. So I was unemployed completely for about 5 weeks, during which they sent me the forms to catch up over on which had fallen 6 weeks behind. I filed via web cert and they paid me quite promptly. I recieved a voice message from someone calling about a phone interview for Tues. I tried calling back but could not connect. I looked through all my EDD paperwork, and nothing about a phone interview. I got a hold of her the next day on my lunch break. I had put for the reason you are no longer working as “contract ended”. It had, ended for me. She says the employer says I was terminated. And because there was a dispute is why she was calling. She told me I had to be very careful with my language with EDD. She said she would put down that I agreed with the employer that I was terminated.
Will this cause denial of eligibility? What about the 5 weeks they have already paid me for? Would I have to pay it back? What if the reason you are terminated is for coming in late? In all my years of work, this is the first time I got canned for being unreliable.
The employer is the contracting agency who I never actually spoke with. It was the client who told me it wasn’t working out but felt bad because I was such a good worker. She even gave me a weeks notice.
Although I am working at a low paying gig now, I just don’t have the wherewithall to fight it with an appeal… My last web cert only gave me one week, and after that it is nearly exhausted..

Last week I received my first UI payment to my debit card. It was deposited on Tuesday the 17th of Feb. Certified my hours via tele-cert on March 1st, expecting the payment available today, just as last time. No dice.

Anyone know if there is a system issue? Or should I expect to just not get any benefits?

They keep updating on talks regarding extensions. My benefits ended late January, my last claim form advise to reapply…so I did. I got a letter in the mail that said to call back in July 2015 to see if I qualify. I’m guessing not!
Does anyone know of any updates on extensions?

I got a Request for Eligibility Information letter that said failure to complete and return both forms within 10 days of the mailing date listed above will be the cause for denial of benefits. The postmark on the envelope was 6 days after the mail date, so I only had 4 days and that included the time with the post office and the weekend. So I did not meet the 10 days, but did easily for 10 days from the postmark. I sent back the envelope showing the postmark with my forms. Will I lose my benefits because of a delay not in my control?

Long story short… I was let go from my position for misconduct on 12/17/2014. I was denied eligibility on 01/08/2015. I appealed the discussion and won on 02/19/2015. Per EDD correspondence via email my eligibility was updated on 02/24/2015 and payment was processed on that date. I was advise it would take 24-48 hours. I certified for my benefits for two weeks that ended on 02/28/2015. I just received an email that I was deposited only 91$! First of all where is my backpay money for 10 weeks? And why I was given just $91? My weekly amount is $373. I submitted like three emails in the last three days and no response…. Overwhelmed and stressed… Any suggestion ?
