I’m going to appeal my over payment penalty, which has been outrageous – approx 30 weeks for $800.I want to see my full records – calls, claim forms submitted, payments received, etc, Is this possible?

in Where's my Money!?

I received my last claim form and it only had the first week and the 2nd week had x’s all over it. Understandable I guess. It said my payment amount and that my balance after the payment was $16. Somehow for whatever reason I was instead paid only $16 and the rest of the money which should have appeared on my card is no where to be found.

I am having major ankle surgery in early April. I have not told my employer just yet. How early do any of you think I should confess? My company is not a major company such as Google or Apple. I am a bit nervous, but also want to do the right thing. I know they are not supposed to fire me for that, but technically, a company can find other ways. However, I also know I’m liked by my company.Once you officially go on a Medical Leave, is your job still protected?

in ¿Confused?

I’m interested in CTB for moving into medical fields. Anyone been approved for taking prereqs for LVN or RN programs at community colleges? Or trade school like Bay Area Medical Academy in SF or Contra costa medical career college in Antioch for medical assistant, pharmacy tech, phlebotomy or Kaiser in Richmond for radiology? Seems a lot of schools have been removed from the provider list. Did anyone get WIA funds? If working now, which program or school was best in the medical field? Thanks in advance.

Some say medical assist & phlebotomy are saturated fields. Don’t wanna waste time or money studying a field with no job prospects or poorly run trade school.

You guys know the drill.

Called Bank of America for a hardship request because of an eviction notice. I haven’t recvd my debit card in the mail yet.. Now I called 12noon yesterday for the initial rqst. They mentioned a call back 3 to 5 hours to obtain confirmation. called back they said to call back again 3 to 5 hours for western union update their information. Called BofA 10 times yesterday.Spent all day 12-11pm trying to obtain this WestUnion# Not one could explain a realistic timeframe for this to process.. Last call of the day for them to call back this morning and should be updated.. Gave them til 12noon again just in case.. “Please call back in another 2hrs.?” They sound like a bunch of robots, trained to say the exact thing.? I’ve worked in a call center for 8yrs.customer care/escalations.. These reps are a Joke! Not at all helpful.. Pretty useless.. Anyone know how long this process usually takes? That’s all I want to know.. Thanks for your time.

I don’t understand whether or not you have to reopen your claim if you work for a week but earn more than your weekly benefit? If work 4 days one week and 5 the next week & job ends, you report the wages and hours but is your claim closed? Do you have to re-open the claim?

Ex: weekly benefit is $200 but you earn $350 one week worked 28 hrs and $500 the next week for 35 hrs.
