    I am also thinking this may be a Bof A situation….however my webcert says submitted not issued yet. So ridiculous.

  • marissa

    No deposit today. I always get the $ on Tuesday. My webcert says submitted on the 23rd, but I certified on the 22nd

  • Anonymous

    I’m in the same situation. I certified on Sunday (1/22) but my WebCert says that I certified on Monday (1/23). I usually get the deposit on Tuesday. So that makes four of us so far …

  • Michael

    I am in the same boat! Always submit on Sunday and payment is on my card Tuesday. WebCert says submitted on January 23, not the 22nd which is when I did it and no money. It still says submitted, not issued. What is up with that? There was no holiday that I know of. I really needed the money today as I’m sure you all did too.

    I’m dealing with the exact same situation!

    I tried to to my web cert Sun but it said “issued” already! ??
    Weird, cuz I didn’t do my cert yet. So I called tele cert….it only let me cert ONE week! WTH! Back to trying to get ahold of EDD UI dept! Called EDD Executive office AGAIN (916)654-8210… the lady that answered (Dorothy) was really nice. They are now logging all the UI calls (and there’s alot) and they take your complaint and send it to the management of the UI dept. Have a hard time thinking that we will get quicker attention, but happy that there is a little more progress because we are calling them! Keep it up!
    I’ve emailed EDD (the contact email on their website) 3 times in the last two weeks and have NEVER received a response. (mind you….it states that email is the fastest way to receive a response!) haha
    Here’s the legislative email again eddlegislativeoffice@edd.ca.gov
    Please send you issues there also. Good luck all.
    PS…. email the Governor http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php

    Have any of you worked temporary or part time during December/January?

    I’m starting to think that if you claimed that you worked, EDD will hold onto your benefits so that they can interview you and try to get those employers to pay into unemployment insurance.

    My interview is set for the 31st. I asked the rep, how soon would I get my money. I can’t wait until after February 1st. I need to pay my rent and take care of other bills. As I’ve stated in other post, my last payment was on December 21st for the week ending December 17th. Ridiculous! Waste of time, now I’m wishing that I never worked for $97. I hope people are complaining more and they need to fire upper management at EDD.

  • Michael

    No unfortunately I have not worked at all. Everything is exactly the same for me. I talked to a friend in Ohio yesterday and she said her daughter was out of school. Did we miss a holiday or something?

  • un-un-employed

    No money here either!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    I did not report any wages during December or January and did not work during that time. My last payment was 1/10/2012. I get very paranoid whenever my payments are late — I worry that they will come up with a reason to flag my claim and demand overpayment plus interest.

    Perhaps it’s an error on the part of BofA or just a delay with the EDD.

    This entire process — getting laid off, applying for non-existent jobs, working with the EDD, looking for a Plan B and Plan C — may not be the worst thing in the world, but it is sure aging me fast!

  • Anonymous

    Yesterday (Monday 1/23) was the Chinese New Year. There were no classes held at City College of San Francisco. Could that be the reason for the delay? It’s a pretty stupid one.

  • Pinky

    Me again. Forgot to tell you that BofA called me yesterday to follow up on my initial complaints (over a week ago). She said she is a supervisor of a “Vendor” department that deals with complaints involving EDD and BofA. Her info…..

  • marissa

    I spoke to an EDD agent, and she told me that my claim was never received by them. I certified via webcert on Sunday. She advised to certify again by phone.

  • Douglas

    Chinese New Year is not listed as one of the state holidays on the EDD website, nor is any other holiday listed for yesterday.

    same here. it says submitted 1/23 but i submitted via webcert on sunday. usually get paid tues, nothing there this morning.

  • Anonymous

    Pinky I called the Governor’s office yesterday and plead my case on the problems with EDD. I also called in November 2011 when EDD withheld my payments for a month. Thanks for the BoFA info!

  • anon

    Banks and EDD were both closed on Mon 1/16 for MLK day. Is it possible that that would delay payment a day? It seems like they would be caught up by now.

  • anonymous

    Same issue here. I certified on Sunday but shows submitted on 23rd and no payment yet. Sigh

  • M A Krenz

    I just read a posting on EDD’s facebook page by someone who had been on the phone with EDD and was told there was a computer related delay in processing payments.

    This is exactly the kind of information EDD should be posting on their facebook page, but this is not the case. Instead it was provided my a person leaving a comment.

    thanks so much for posting MA!

    Thanks for passing that along, M.A.K!

    Thanks M A Krenz!

  • nand

    same goes for me. no updates on bofa site n web cert. thry should at least post it on their edd sites. disappointed!!

  • don

    same here, certify via webcert on sunday, payments loaded to edd debit card on tues. been like that for months except when holidays fuck things up.

    as i write this i have no gas in my car so i can’t go to school, can’t get food, called the local offices here in the sfv (canoga park and pacoima) and i get the same stories, they say only the 800 numbers can help you with this issue. some people have been rude, others have been nice. i also have called many numbers in this post and in others, even the governor’s office. and i get put on a callback list. i wonder what held things up this time?

  • DB

    Wow its craziness. I was really counting on it too. I sold my car yesturday ready to buy today another used one. Could not. I really hope we have it tomorrow rent is due soon. Not angry just frustraited.

  • don

    actually, called this number 916-654-8210. Was told that the holiday last week is what resulted in the delay. WTF! it was last week. how dumb is that.

  • Anon

    MA, could you please post the FB link here? I’m unable to find that comment.

    Thanks!

  • Anon

    thanks for the info Don :)

    If you go to http://www.facebook.com/californiaedd andfind the entry ‘California’s unemployment rate decreases to 11.1 percent.’ posted on Jan 20th at 10:12 AM and select ‘view all comments ‘ scroll down to the most recent ones and you should be able to find the comment referenced.

  • don

    finally managed to get through and speak to a person, someone told me that had a huge influx of claims on sunday resulted in payments being delayed. i’ve been told that and the holiday are to blame. which one is it? the rep was rude too.

  • Pinky

    I FINALLY got a call back from someone at the Legislative office of EDD. Because I sent an email to eddlegislativeoffice@edd.ca.gov
    Maybe we shook the cage enough to get the ball rolling! Still going to follow up on my email to the Governor and hopefully make some changes in this unorganized, disrespectful, no consequence having state office!
    Please continue to email the governor even after your issue is resolved so we can ALL help make a change!!! Thanks!

  • Missy73

    I have the same problem, too. Filed Sunday, but edd web-cert says it was submitted Mon. 1/23/12. Really NEEDED my money today. I hope we all get our benefits by tomorrow morning, 1/25/12. This is ridiculous!

  • Anon

    @ MAK, thanks again, much appreciated!

    Pinky -

    Someone named James just called me from EDD in Sacramento. He left a message saying he would call me back. I’m hoping that he does so that I can get my money ASAP.

  • Jon

    Same problems. Certified Sunday, usually get deposit on Tuesday. No payment today, Web cert this morning said ‘submitted 1/23′. This evening it says ‘submitted 1/24′, I hope it gets taken care of tomorrow.

  • MVH

    In the same boat. Submitted via Web-cert Sun. It’s easy to get used to the Tues early AM payments (providing things are flowing smoothly) but I believe they state after submitting claim allow UP to 10 days for payment. Their unpredictiable and impossible to trust or contact. Hopefully will have payment by tomorrow morning. Times are tuff, hang in there all!

  • Anonymous

    You guys sound like you need your drugs.

  • nand

    shows submitted 1/24 now. hope everyone gets paid tomorrow. this is annoying sitting in front of my monitor all day…

  • don

    Sometimes payments are available on the card at midnight. I’m going to stay up and see if it comes thru tonight.

    @don, I just checked my BofA account and my payment is there! Finally!

    freakin a…….MINE WENT FROM ISSUED 1/23 TO suBMITTED 1/24 of course I submitted 1/22……….

    I keep eating away at the very little savings I have…keep spending 40+ hours a day networking, applying, revising my resume….

    EDD sucks……………

  • Michael

    Don I will be up until midnight too. I have a bill that has to be paid tomorrow, not optional. Since my WebCert now says submitted 1/24 I am thinking it’s still not fixed.

  • Anonymous

    FYI – My WebCert also says “Submitted 1/24/2012″ but when I check my BofA EDD account, the money has been deposited. Check your BofA account !!!

  • Kris

    My WebCert also says “Submitted 1/24/2012?
    No money in my account

    However on FB someone posted that they called and got through today with EDD and they said there was some computer issues today, and that we should have our cash tomorrow morning

    lol mine is still 1.97 so we are in the same boat. there is seriously no rhyme or reason to this madness! my mom lives in the midwest and my dad was on unemployment for a while and she is seriously shocked at how it works here. there, you can claim online (anyone) and you get paid. every two weeks on time it is direct deposited into the bank. she is like, is this for real? it is like a freaking circus it is almost laughable, i would laugh if i didn’t need my rent for february. :(

  • DAMN THE EDD

    No Money for me. Today wednesday the 25th. and still no MONEY. I didn’t sleep at all, waiting and hoping for the measly $60 after EDD stole my 390 every week. I’m supposed to report to a job orientation today. Well, it was supposed to be yesterday, but EDD didn’t pay me. Actually it was really supposed to be last wednesday, but i gave an excuse to do it yesterday cause i couldn’t get there. Now,i don’t even know what lie to come up with, and i’m sure they are going to scrap me since i’m deemed unreliable and can’t even commit to showing up. regardless, i’m happy that some of you got paid today.

  • -un-employed

    .97—-Fucking assholes!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael

    Mine came in, I don’t know what time. I checked at 3AM and it was there. I just checked EDD and my status says Issued 11/25. I just thought I would let those of you still waiting know. Good luck today and I hope it happens fast.

  • Michael

    Sorry 1/25! Need coffee!!

  • Rick

    Mailed in THREE separate claims forms (yes, EDD WAS that behind in getting me my money) that went out in Tuesday’s mail (all the way from Southeast Texas–I’m on the “Federal-extension benefits,” so am getting paid via the feds money, not necessarily from the state’s coffers). Had my regular two-week period amount posted to my debit card when I checked this morning at 7AM (5AM California time), but it just doesn’t seem feasible that even one of the three claim forms mailed off for Tuesday morning would have gotten to northern California that quick, does it? I don’t think so! Did EDD find the most recent claim form that I mailed to them way back on Jan. 7–and are just now getting around to processing it–or, could it be that one of the claim forms made it all the way to California from the Gulf Coast of Texas from Tuesday morning to Tuesday afternoon (at the EDD offices in California) so they could pay me for at least one of three separate forms mailed to their attention? You tell me! I paid into the “system” for all the years I was working full-time in California, so how ’bout some competency here in processing my claims accordingly. Others have posted on this site, that–when they did reach somebody via EDD (Gee! A LIVE person!–they spoke with a gentleman named, “James.” This is the same named dude I spoke with, too, after the guy at the Chief Deputy Director’s office seemingly passed along my concerns and contact info’ to EDD (and James gives me a call the next day). Going to e-mail Governor Brown right now, for what it’s worth. Just wish somebody with media clout would pick up on this and give us a VOICE to our concerns, that’s all! After I e-mail the governor’s office in Cali’, I’m going to e-mail FOX News, OC Register, and L.A. Times one more time to rattle some cages there, too. Hoping others will follow our lead here and NOT GIVE UP!

  • Kris

    I got paid sometime this morning…
    Hope the rest of you got yours

  • Pollito

    I also do my Claim by Web-Cert (Saves Sooo Much Time, And Toooo Easy) Anywho, I also havent received my claim that I sent for this Past Sunday which always, seems to be deposited in my account on Tuesday. I love the last sentence but, now youre making me think about the money not being there…

  • Anonymous

    NO MONEY for me today neither. NO MONEY NO MONEY, and whenever the money comes, it will all go to paying the extortion fees by my bank and the late fees and there will be nothing left for me to pay my rent. FUCK THE EDD, I REALLY WANT TO HURT THEM VERY BAD AT THIS POINT< AND I WILL SOMEHOW

  • Anonymous

    Me either- when I woke up this morning I had that pit in my stomach like, I don’t even want to check B of A, and then what do you know, no money again. I have given up on them ever paying me.

  • un-employed

    I hate this bullshit!!!—STILL Nothing from this crapass agency!!!

  • sadly, still unemployed…

    Delay was due to the MLK holiday. Been noticing delay of payment by a day or so due to holidays…

    Whenever there’s a holiday, the funds will be deposited and avail by Wednesday, even when the holiday lands on Friday-Monday…
