Mad as hell?   Your not the only one...


I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!!!

The real health care crisis

EDD is the worst state agency in CA and possibly the worst UE agency in the United States. They all know this, all the politicians, and they ignore it. It’s time to make it an election issue. CA Democrats are the greatest hypocrites. They want universal health care, “rights for all”, blah blah, but absolutely do not care about this truly cruel and hateful agency, that people lose their homes, their cars, their KIDS because EDD is so terrible–and the “compassionate” Democrats turn a blind eye. Ask your representative what they intend to do about reforming EDD (give them some ideas rather than just bitch) and if they don’t care, vote for somebody else. Until this becomes an election issue, nothing will change. Nothing. Thank you.

Can EDD garnish your bank account?

so today is sunday, I go to certify online as normal and only 1 week is available to certify. they haven’t sent me any letters or reason to think something is wrong, but I am stressed the F out because the EDD SUCKS and idk why the second week is not there. could it be system problems? has anyone had similar issues?

So confused!!!

I’m so pissed! I went to an IME, who obviously denied me. I applied for an appeal and checked the box to be paid while waiting. Well I got an overpayment. I ended up winning my appeal. They issued a payment last night and applied it to the flipping overpayment! The overpayment that’s supposed to be cleared since I won my damn appeal! And of course no fucking one can help me. And they tell me in the overpayment number that my claim is handled in Long Beach, which is seriously like 90 miles from my fucking house. So if this shit can’t get handled today I guess I’m dragging my 2 year old to damn Long Beach!

Horrible Interview

March 8, 2017

in Pissed!

So I get a notice for an interview asking me a bunch of questions why I quit working for my less than part-time employer last year during my previous claim (almost a year ago). I had quit this job because of the excessive time it took me to get there (3+ hours by bus one way). During this time I was collecting partial benefits and reported all of my income.
I didn’t specifically tell them I quit because the job had highly variable hours where I didn’t even work some weeks, and I didn’t know my last day was even going to be my last day.
The interviewer berated me on the phone for not specifically telling them I quit and demanded I make repayment arrangements right then and there. I said there was no way I could afford to and she said it would come out of my tax return. I told her I wasn’t getting a tax refund either.
They haven’t approved my last claim which I filed a few days ago and I don’t expect them to. Needless to say I’m probably going to have to file an appeal. Worst experience ever with an EDD employee..

I have been employed for 2 years at this point at the same job! Thank god! I recently got a letter from EDD. I froze when I saw it – what on earth can they want! I open it up and they say I was overpaid a full week 2 years ago. It was the first week of my last job. The story is I was confused filling out my first 2 weeks of the claim. For my frist week of work I put down I made 0 cause at the end of your frist week you make 0 you don’t get paid till the following week. This is incorrect. Since was 2 years ago I racked my brain and said well I must have made a mistake so I look at the date of me having to send it all back in and I literally have 2 days till the make a decision? I Send the full amount in and get a letter back saying since I didn’t explain myself I owe the full money (which I already sent in and they cashed) plus a 150.00 penalty plus a suspension for 5 weeks if I ever get back on EDD! Let me remind you this was my first mistake at EDD and I said sorry paid the amount and now they’re doing this! I asked for an appeal on the 150.00 penalty and the 5 week one. It’s robbery! I can’t even get them on the phone. Anyone else experience this? I guess I’ll go in person and fight it. So frustrating!
