I had a partial kidney nephrectomy due to cancer on 08/11/17. I tried to go online and file a claim for temp disabilty and the damn system keeps stating it cannot match my name as entered to Ca DMV even though I am looking at my CDL and enetring it just as directed. I gave up and started calling the EDD and to date I have never been able to talk to a person, the system hangs up on me because the maximum number in the que has been reached! I tried emailing, no response. I had to return to work earlier than my doctor wanted because I was out of PTO time at work and hey….I need to pay my bills. A last resort will be paper claim. How many folks just give up and never get any money? If they were my employer and not paying my wages I could file a claim with the CA Labor Commissioner, hey now that’s an idea! Like I said…what a brilliant back alley way to steal my money!!!

I’m confused

So I’m a little confused and maybe someone can help me out. When I’m on my UI online, under “claim history”, it states that I have been “paid” for 3 of the 4 weeks I have certified for (with the first week being the waiting period). But when I open up “payment history”, it’s only showing that I’ve been paid for one week? Where are the other two weeks? Under claim history it states “paid”, but there’s no “payment ID” and they aren’t in payment history. What does this mean?

I applied for my EDD benefits and was approved got my first 2 payments without any problems. I certified and had a phone interview at the end of the week. I missed my phone interview by a few minutes and called back immediately and left a message. I kept calling back until today, when she finally called me back. I did the phone interview and she told me it’ll take a couple days for them to process and, if everything is okay I’ll get my money. I also got a notice to certify this week. I certified and then almost immediately on my claim history it says ‘disqualification’ for all my prior claims. Even the ones I was paid for. I’m really confused and scared as to what it means. Does it mean I’m disqualified from my benefits? Do I have to pay back for my previous weeks? Really concerned. ANyone else have this issue?

So i found out through my own investigation that i was disqualified for at least 4 weeks (i certified twice for 4 different weeks 2 weeks at a time and thats how i found out) but i have yet to actually receive a notice of determination. now that seems a bit odd and maybe its just lost in the mail. but if the deadline is up, and i truly never receive it even though i called UI and had a representative repeatedly tell me its on the way, is there a way i can be granted the money i was rightfully free to appeal? essentially i dont think ill be able to appeal the ruling because of the fact that i havent got the letter, i havent got the appeal form, no one is answering my questions.

I filed for unemployment. The last place I worked at last year was a pizza place. I delivered. I told EDD I left because I had to go back to Illinois to help put my father with ALS move into an assisted living place. And the pizza owner would not give more than 2 days off. I had to go back several times to Illinois since. Sold my car for money later so cant’ deliver.

Was denied. Now appealing. Any appeal tips? PLEASE. THANKS
