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


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

I applied for UI using eAppy4UI on 11/17/17. The application acknowledgment states that if I don’t receive UI claim materials by 11/27/17 (today) to contact EDD and provide confirmation number. Well, I didn’t receive anything today from EDD. I remember from collecting UI in 2012 that trying to reach EDD was a nightmare.

The company I last worked for (in June) closed the business–that is why I’m unemployed. I have been looking for a job since then with no luck so far. When I collected UI in 2012, the process was so stressful that I decided not to apply when I was laid off in June, but now I’m running out of options and have no choice but to apply.

Could there be a delay because of the holiday? Could the delay be because my ex-employer did not respond?

Any advice on navigating this process is appreciated, especially tips on contacting EDD.

My last employer will not respond to the EDD. I had my phone interview yesterday. I was laid off for “lack of work.” My friend still works there and told me our boss has not responded to the EDD for the 2 of us he laid off, just completely informing their paperwork and phone calls. What does this mean for me? Will my claim get approved or do I have to wait until he responds?

Does any one know anything about Trade Adjustment Assistance, here? I was already approved but why my assigned TAA Rep in San Francisco, is sending me to a Culinary School when I wish to learn something different, like computer or anything related to technology. Is this, right?

how long does the lag period last?

I filed for U.I. benefits I’mwhen I was laid off in October 2016. I exhausted the benefits on my claim. I opened a new claim since I’m still unemployed. Will I still be eligible to receive U.I. benefits?

If You Certify For Benefits On Line How Long Does It Take Before You Get Your Money

I was approved for CTB for 18 months when my school ends. Online TE states it is one time for 6 months. Which is correct? Or is after the extended 6 months when I get a new claim award based on new earnings?
