April 2016


I’m current on ui from an older claim. I got a new job and kept it for six months, I was forced to quit because my husband took a temporary job hrs away. Normally, i would had waited but this was all during separation. I have a child and I can’t risk becoming a single mother and putting my child thru that. So I decided to accompany him for the duration of his contract job. I attempted to look for other jobs in the same company to transfer to but I was in management and the few positions available where pt and five dollars less an hr. I have yet to find a job and his contract is coming to an end so I will be moving back to where to the town I held the job at. Also, I didn’t tell my employer the exact reason why I had to quit. I only said a temporary job re location for my husband. I was truly embarrassed thAt
my significant other put me in this position. So I didn’t elaborate why I had to quit.

Question 1. Am I able to collect benefits once I exhaust my current claim? 2. If I’m approved and somehow apply for my old position will being on ui hurt my chances of being rehired.

Hi, I just started collecting benefits and have an interview for a short 4 week job next week. My question is, if I get the job, do I contact EDD and let them know, or do I just stop certifying and reopen my claim when the job ends? I had to do it once before but I can’t remember if I contacted them or not, or just didn’t certify. Any answers would be helpful, thanks.

Once edd confirms that you are paid benefits and you haven’t received debit card call bank of America to make sure EDD has notified them about sending you debit card. I learned the hard way waiting only to find out my pay was loaded into an expired card. Just trying to help anyone.Rush UPS delivery cost $10 and dont bother with tracking # cos bofA doesn’t seem to have it. I called several times only to get tracking # the day package was due to arrive to me.

EDD and Bill Gates…

in Pissed!

To say that “EDD SUCKS” is the equalivient of “Bill Gates has a few extra dollars.”

Waited 10 weeks for an appeal hearing. Original decision was REVERSED. (AKA I WON!)

Now I must prove why 2 weeks of filings were late. BTW… This MUST be resolved before the 7 weeks at $444.00 which are NOT in question can be paid.

“All claims must be paid in order.”

NOW… How often is a police officer placed on administrative leave, receiving full pay, while a shooting is investigated? Every Day.

SO… My appeal of their decision took ten weeks. I was presumed GUILTY and therefore not paid one penny. I was able to prove my case and now find myself arguing with them again… SO THAT I MAY CLAIM WHAT I HAVE PAID FOR.

JUST ONCE I would like to see my government actually do something in MY BEST INTEREST.


Dates all wrong

I got my appeal info in mail yesterday and have 6 days to prepare. Employer claims I got fired 3/3/16 for misconduct for an incident on the day before 3/2/16, which was my day off. They also stated I was verbally warned on 1/16/16 which is on a Saturday and no one works on Saturday. Are these discrepancies alone enough to win my case or do I need to get into more details of what happened?

I received a letter from EDD disallowing unemployment benefits because they can’t confirm my identity as being John Bessler the California Drivers license and form 1099 SSA the yearly tax statement sent by the Social Security Administration is not good so they want a birth certificate which I will have to pay for and wait two months. I called my Assemblywoman’s office and they are working on it.
This political retaliation for me blowing the whistle on Medi-Cal fraud to the Bureau of State Audits and Assemblywoman ordering an investigation of Department of Health Services Medi-Cal Division. It is revenge against me for being a snitch. I have been rejected twice by EDD only to have the Administrative Law Judge overturn EDD which is part of the Health and Agency Agency is a former Director of under Arnold. I am going to fight this if I have to hire an attorney to fight these crooks.
