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

¿Confused?

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

So I’m very confused here. I worked a part time job for 2 years (20 hours a week or so) and the restaurant i worked for was closed. I’m also a full time student, so i thought i would take advantage of California’s unemployment while looking for a job and going to school. So i applied and got my debit card and first payment, but haven’t been paid again, and that was 2 months ago. I’m having a phone interview, but i’m confused, do i need to get a full time job? Full time would be difficult with my schedule, so I am only wanting to get a part time job, like the one i filed my claim off of. I believe that they are questioning my eligibility due to me saying no to the question regarding if I’m available to work full time on the claim form. So i put no to that, since i want to work part time, not full time, and still answered yes to looking for work. So my question is, do i need to get a full time job to get benefits? Even after applying for unemployment on a part time job?

Hi everyone, so i recently applied to receive UI benefits and i was approved, i will be getting around 250 a week but i recently got called in for an interview with Spirit halloween, it went well and offered me a position, now that i have that job offer, i dont know wheather to collect the UI benefits or accept the job offer at spirit. i am on here asking because i will only b employed for the holloween season which is one month. if i do accept this job, does anyone know what will happen to my UI benefits? i dont think i will b making as much money if i were to be hired because hours are scarce and it will b part time. My other question is if i do accept the job, after its over, would i b able to re apply for UI benefits NOT through spirit, but through the job i had before?? i really hope i worded this correctly to have ANYONE understand where im coming from or have been in this situation before. PLEASE HELP

THANK YOU

My last day of work was a Monday.

My first Continued Claim form shows the 1st claim week beginning on the Sunday before my last day of work. I assume then that I should list my last day of work on this form?

Hello,
Exhibiting symptoms of confusion here, hope someone here can help. Three weeks ago, I applied for UI, had a phone interview on 8/30/2016. After which, I certified for UI benefits online. I have not received an approval or denial letter from EDD, however. When I check my UI account online, it shows EDD issued one payment for 2nd week and the 1st was the (Waiting Period Served for week ending 08/19/2017). So far so good, now. Keep in mind I have yet to receive and debit card or approval or denial letter from EDD. What I did get in the mail was, continued claim form for the next two weeks. Here is my confusion, I login to my UI account this morning and under “notification” it reads:
“Reopen Your Claim

If you have not certified for benefits for a period of time or you have never certified during this benefit year, you must reopen your claim”

and just below that it reads, under notifications.

In-Person Appointment

Reemployment Eligibility Assessment

You have an in-person appointment scheduled. You must appear at the date and time shown. Failure to attend this appointment may affect your eligibility to receive Unemployment Insurance benefits. A letter was sent to you containing information about your appointment. If you have not received this letter before your appointment date, contact us.

Does this suggest that my UI claim was denied and I have to reapply (hence the reopen your claim title)? and there is a link to reopen claim. Since its a holiday weekend, I cant get in touch with edd rep. Hoping someone here can help me understand, if my claim was denied and that I have to reapply.
Thank you all in advance.

I have been waitng since aug 24th to get my check I keep calling edd they say wait ten business days now I checked online and its saying cancelled today but said paid all the previous days I checked. Has this happened to anyone else?? Why would they cancel my benefits without a letter?

Hello There,

I have been receiving UI benefits for about a few months now. I got a letter stating I’ve been scheduled for an interview because I didn’t list a job on my original claim form. I don’t even remember working for the employer and it’s not the one that is due to me getting unemployment benefits.
I probably worked there for less than a couple weeks for extra money during the time because I seriously don’t remember and I didn’t get or file it or my taxes.

Will this disqualify me or will I get continued benefits? Go to a higher tier? Phone interview is next week. Help please!

This is my first time accepting UI, so I have had some difficulties with the process…when I first certified, I did not realize that the withholding they ask you to opt into was mandatory. I was under the impression it was some kind of extra withholding, like what you do on a W-2.

For my most recent check I have been opting in for the withholding, but I am not sure how to correct that I did not withhold on previous checks. I don’t want to be penalized by the IRS for this. Did anyone make this mistake and know how to fix?
