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


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

Hi! So this is my 3rd time being on state disability (California) I just started this new claim early March and I’ve already done one continued claim (2500A) for a 14 day period and now I have to do another one at the end of this 14 day period. I’ve never had these so frequently. Normally it’s every few months or so. Does anyone have any idea why?

I received a notice of over payment in the amount of $255.00. Here’s a back story. I had been laid off due to office closure on 10.28.2016. I found a part time job that I started on 10.31.2016. It was with UPS and those hours varied, my lowest check was about 90 dollars, my highest about 348. I did not keep up with certifying and was subsequently disqualified. Which was no biggie because I found a temp job that was full time and I started 01.09.2017. I called them to tell them about this and they said to keep sending in the paperwork to get certified. Anyways, I honestly cant remember if I did. I did receive 110 dollars for the week ending 11.19.2016 during the time I collected. That week I earned 192 which is what I had put on the cert notice. What is so confusing to me is that I never received the payment for 255 dollars. So I dont understand how they can be saying I was overpaid. I have called and spoke to 3 different people about this and no one can give me a answer, just fill out the form and send it in. UGH! Anyone else deal with this?

Hey guys,I’m in CA and I just started to certify 2 weeks of work , BUT their weeks start on Sun and ends on Sat (inclusive). Example W1: Apr 2 – Apr 8 and W2: Apr 9 – Apr 15. So my question is do I have to show that I’ve looked for work on Sat and Sun as well as M-F?! or will M-F be enough? Also what’s the min and acceptable number of job searches in a given week? Thank you!

Ok, so I thought you get SDI payments weekly ? How do you get them ? Bi-weekly. Or weekly ? Also , do you get your weekly benefit amount or do you get the daily amount ? Ok very confused and can’t figure it out because I got a partial 3 day payment that isn’t equal to my daily amounts ? Anyone on SDI for pregnancy know my answer ???

Anybody else on UI in AZ know just wtf is going on? I’m getting a little miffed, and calling them is an exercise in futility.

Anybody know what’s up?

Waiting for answer

I had my EDD interview more than 10 days ago and I haven’t received a response yet. My last certification from 2 weeks ago is still “pending”. If they deny my claim, can I appeal based on them taking longer than 10 days to get back to me?

It’s my first time back on EDD after over 3 years, and now the online form asks for job “search” info (actually it should say job APPS or CONTACTS!), but allows you to opt out and not complete it.
1. If i opt out of completing the job search will i be screwed?
2. Why would they let us opt out, who would complete it if we don’t have to? (I always SEARCH but didn’t do any apps this week.)
3. If i start the online form and then stop to mail paper instead will i get in trouble? I guess this week i will just mail in the paper form as the box isn’t checked.
Is “share your story” the same as “ask a question”? I guess “i’m confused” covers it. 🙂
