What the F¤¢k is going on around here?


Help, I don’t speak bureaucrat! Can someone please explain this in plain English?

I was terminated on -14-17. That same day I filed for unemployment. I got paperwork and was told to by someone I talked to on their 800 number to register online and file online. I had my telephone interview on 9-28-17. I have been watching my status online since I had not received anything from them to let me know what is going on. Today my status went from pending for the week of 9-16-17 to excessive earnings since I was working that week. Then it said the week of 9-23-27 “waiting period served”. I am unsure what this means…. Does it mean that I was approved and just have to wait for the waiting period? Keep in mind I haven’t received the ATM card as of right now. I have never gotten employment payments before and don’t understand how they do things… Just hoping for help making since of this….


So on Thursday, August 31, my wife and I got a call about fostering two children. I had been laid off from my job and on unemployment for a few weeks prior.

We got the kids Thursday night and I applied to get on Paid Family Leave the next week. Since there was a seven day waiting period, I assumed I was able to fill out my claim for the week and got scheduled for a phone interview.

During the interview I was told I had knowingly submitted a false statement and should have checked “yes” under “Yes” or “No” and said there was a reason I was unable to work.

She said I would have to pay back for the day and would probably get a 5 week penalty.

I feel like this was an honest mistake, but the worker was so accusatory. Like I was trying to scam the government for the 50 bucks or whatever I was paid for the day. Is the only thing I can do now to appeal this is to go before the judge? What a hassle.


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.
