Post if you were paid


Here’s the trick. When you dial the EDD number and the prompt starts to say “Welcome!…” IMMEDIATELY enter on your keypad “15110″ all at once and it should tell you to hold and your call will be answered in the order it was received. It works for me every time. The longest I’ve had to wait for someone to pick up was like 3 minutes. Let me know if it works for you. It should. Good luck! :)


I quit my my job at the end of last month
And applied for unemployment on the 2nd of July .
I quit cause of my child care hours,
Conflicted with my daycare hours .
I had a set schedule and coming into this job it was on the table about the hours .
After a few people quit the hours were put on my shoulders and I advised my boss about my situation .
They told me ok and never got resolved .
I let them know again about it and nothing was done .
So I quit my job and I’m looking for a new job that fits my hours.
My wife makes more than me so I have to work around her schedule .
I got my edd phone interview and told them the story I just implied .
They asked questions and and in the middle of the call the lady said my employer noted that I was layed off .
The lady said she has to go by that .
She then said I most likely am eligible for unemployment and they were going to process it .
That was yesterday .
What time frame or has anyone been in this situation ? This is my first time doing this .
I’ve had a job since I was 16 .
I’ve never depended on the state help .


I haven’t worked in 6 years now that I have medi-cal and can go to Dr I found out I have a disability that is permanent, do I apply thru EDD ? or social security? the reason im asking is because the neurologist ask me to bring EDD forms for him to sign, BUT I haven’t worked in a long time because of my disability.

any input would help

I have not received the funds from my July 12 webcert. I finally reached the EDD yesterday by phone. The guy said my info looks up to date. After explaining my issue, I have no money and I am starving, he asked if I am updating or re-posting my resume on the Caljobs site regularly. I said I posted a resume a month back and check the job posting four times a week and he replied that I should re-post my resume at least once a week in the event my claim is reviewed they can visually see I am seeking employment.

Any had this issue come up and effect their claim?


What exactly does this mean? Will I be able to receive unemployment benefits??

I am currently receiving temporary disability. Is it possible to move out of CA and still receive the same benefits?


Say for example (not actual) if my weekly benefit amount is 250 and I work some part time job that week and make $100, is the 100 deducted from 250 and my weekly benefit for that week adjusted to 150 or how is it calculated?

If you fail to report it, how long roughly does it take for the wage information to hit their system and they find out and adjust it themselves?

Thanks in advance!


Original claim expired. I never collected EUC. I managed to land a job after my state benefits were exhasted, earning around $3,000 – $4,000 … the job let me go, when I re-apply for a new claim will they take my original earnings from my 1st claim or base it off my new earnings?


Just received award letter and I have two different awards. Line 4 & 7. i worked two jobs with a School district but paid into the SDI with them. Not understanding the language for the amount. any help?
