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


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

I quit company A for company B. Then company B laid me off. But company A is beingh billed for unemployment. I filled out the separation paperwork and now I have a phone interview. Is this normal and, “is there a possibility that my unemployment will be cancelled?” If someone can help? I called edd and it seemed like the guy who answered didn’t want to really answer my questions. Please help. Thanks.

I had my phone interview scheduled 1.5 weeks ago. The call came at the very end of the 2 hour window and went straight to my voicemail instead of ringing through. Since then, I have left a message every day for the interviewer and one for his supervisor. I have received no response from either and I was disqualified for the previous two weeks. The one time I talked to an actual person at EDD they said to NOT reschedule my interview. Any advice would be welcome!

Good Day,
I’m hoping someone may have some feedback on the following situation: I started a new job and there was training for the job. After 3 days of training, I took a test to see if I’d passed the training. I didn’t. Frankly I wasn’t surprised. I am older and the training went too fast for me. I was learning the job but not fast enough. They called me in the office and said because I didn’t pass training I’m no longer working for the company. I then applied for unemployment and a phone interview was scheduled. I met the interviewer (nice lady by the way) by phone and answered her questions and basically am wondering what is the next step? How long do I wait to find out if my claim is active?

I filed last month. I just received my FIRST payment. There’s a claim balance on the letter. The claim balance equals about 10 more weeks of payments. That’s it. I thought unemployment lasted for 26 weeks. Can someone explain this?

I was unemployed on June 15, they set up a phone interview for July 3. I don’t understand why they are confused, because it should be clearcut. Do I need to fill out some paperwork or internet thing to attest to looking for work since I first filed the claim?

I was supposed to have my phone interview today between 1&3 and nobody called me! What do I do now? Thanks in advance for your help!

I am in the process of having my wages re-examined by EDD because every year my benefit amounts are going down, quite drastically even though my salary is increasing a little each year so I would expect the benefits to follow suit. This is not the case however and I noticed that the max benefits is lower this year than last year on my initial benefits statement and I don’t know the cause of this. Has there been a reduction in the amount of benefits paid on a new and lowered benefits table? I can’t find any information regarding this but it wouldn’t surprise me if unemployment was cut down in size. Please let me know. I’m very curious and confused because I work as a teacher and every dollar counts during these summer months and it’s only getting harder and harder to find dignity or to even justify any of this.
