June 2016

I too filed for unemployment benefits for the first time. I was required to do 2 things after my phone interview: file something using the edd ui website, and register for caljobs.

I couldn’t do either one.

I couldn’t access the ui website because I couldn’t even register for it. I couldn’t register as a new user since I filed for disability for a 3 week period when I had surgery 2 years ago. I had to use the sdi login I created back then. Needless to say I couldn’t remember it. It’s apparently impossible to recover and calling the 800 number got me no where.

Similarly with caljobs, they sent me a notice saying that I must register and that they had started a “pre registration” for me. All I had to do is use my last name, first initial, and last 4 of the sun to login. No matter how many different ways I typed it in (the instructions are very clear and precise, it’s just that following them doesn’t work. I suspect due to my hyphenated last name) nothing worked.

So I decided to register myself manually from scratch, but that didn’t work either. Why? Because the blasted thing said I was already registered. ..

The edd is sinfully useless. Requiring people to jump through hoops and then not giving them the tools that allow them to do so is cruel.

I’ve been locked out of my sdi account and am waiting for a reply as to the calworks. This stuff has me seriously stressed out as to whether or not I will be punished for failure to register.

I want my taxes back!!!

Here’s a rude obnoxious EDD employee in San Francisco office that keeps harassing me about not attending a workshop I signed up for. This guy should be terminated he’s got a bad attitude and doesn’t try to help the unemployed. His name is Danny Dae. Beware!

EDDis fraudulently claiming I have an overpayment yet on 4 different occasions their employees have confirmed THERE IS NO OVERPAYMENT. There is an unethical employee named Michael who hates to be wrong and needs to be fired as he is a fraud and wondering g who to contact to initiate a formal investigation against this idiot to expose his unethical conduct??

Hi, I was collecting Edd for 5 months. Got a new job with an employer under the impression that I was currently working. I forfeited one week worth of benefits because I read stories that edd will contact and file a claim against my new employer, which would be embarrassing.

It’s only June but I want to be prepared for 2017 tax season. I’m very willing to pay all due taxes. But will they try to contact my new employer for any reason? Like they would’ve had I claimed my last week benefits. Has this happened to anyone? Tips are much appreciated.

If I am already receiving payments from one job and edd asked me why did I leave the previous job to that one, Is it possible that they could add money to my claim? I tried to claim the old job before but since I quit I had to wait 90 Days and of course I was employed by then. So wouldn’t I be elgible for the other job to be claimed ? Or no? Lmk
