in User Submited, Where's my Money!?
just wanted to know if anyone else had a delay in payment today. i usually get my payment every tuesday but i didnt received it today?
no payment yet
Yep, mine is late as well, usually get the direct deposit on the edd debit card on Tuesday but did not get it today.. hopefully tomorrow. My husband believes that it is late because they were closed for Thanksgiving 11/24 & 11/25. Im assuming a lot of people did not get payment today as the EDD line is packed right now and they just opened 30 min ago. Good luck!
Rhi, your husband makes a good point about the holiday. I didn’t think about that. I was expecting payment to my debit card today as well and when I checked my balance on my way out to pay bills, there was nothing there. I sure hope that the payment isn’t delayed TWO days because of the two days they were closed because I have a 45cent balance and no food. F*#%!!! If anybody here gets through to an agent, can you please post what they said about the late payments (why the payments are late and when we will all get paid) PLEASE?
Yep, mine wasn’t in there as of 2am but I just talled the B of A number and the funds are in my account now. I tried to call the regular line earlier but got the usual recording that they are getting more calls than they can handle and to call back later. I kind of feel sorry for those EDD employees who answer our calls because you know they don’t get a single second to breathe between calls.
Yes, I didn’t have funds in my account this morning when I checked. I just checked my account and found that there was a recent deposit. Double check your account and see if there was a recent deposit. Thank you, Jason! It is because of you I checked again to see if there was money!
My pleasure Amy. Everybody…we should all have our money now!
Per Jason and Amy, I just re-checked my balance and it’s still at 45cents. Bummer. Here’s hoping!
I was suppose to have 2 weeks, but i only got pay 1 week.. is anybody else have the same problem I have.
Regarding the one week instead of two weeks; that happened to me this time too. I calld in yesterday to ask why (choose option 2 for Spanish and you have a better chance of getting through – they speak English, too)and the person zi spoke with said that I had exhausted the first 6 months of my claim and that is why I could only certify for one week. She said the EDD would automatically file me for an additional 22 weeks and to call telecert next Sunday, December 4th and I would then be able to certify for two weeks at a time again. I’m not sure if that second week we weren’t able to certify for will be recouped when we cerfify on Dec. 4th or not. I am also curious as to why I haven’t seen a paper claim continuation form for months! Whatever.
that’s weird.. I already had a continuation already and was even get pay a 2 week period on that continuation..
For the people that received their payment today. What was the weekly end date for it?.. Thanks a million. I really appreciate it..
I should have gotten my $ on Thursday (Thanksgiving). It still hasn’t gone through!
I got a continuation (I was approved las month). On the 16th of Nov.; I got paid for 2 weeks. I just check my edd debit card today; I was paid for only 1 week. Anybody have the same issues; I try to call all day and couldn’t get through..
I submitted my claim form on web cert on Nov 22nd. Up to now, I still have not received anything. Thinking about sending the paper claim form in as well…the website says it could delay it but i’m worried my form wasn’t received online.
I called the automated #. It just stated the payment for the Nov. 16th… URGH!!!!! still no deposit to my account….
No deposit for me neither. Since i got the Debit card it use to be available on Tuesday, however, nothing yesterday, and nothing today. Automated says last payment issued Nov. 14, and the webcert site where i filed is still saying submitted instead of issued. Damn you EDD, over one year of fear, disruption, sudden devastating delays and horrible service and you’re still unpredictable. like someone said on this forum, “EDD has no rhyme, or pattern”. may God help us all.
I just received a notice in the mail stating i will have a phone interview on the 8th of Dec regarding my efforts to look for work. I have only received 1 payment and am already in question??? Has anyone went through this?
@Frustrated– are you getting pay on time? I haven’t got a payment yet for the Nov. 19th end date.. has anyone got a payment for the 19th end date yet??
the 19th was the end date of my claim…no..i have not received anything. let me know if you do!
i havent received payment yet, and my end date is the 19th as well lovableranger. I wonder how many people have been paid for this period yet, if any?
Ok; if i received or hear anything I will post it here..Sigh; this is just ridiculous
OMG!! I just try to check on the payment and of course I get the automated system. the said the system is currently unavailable.. what the hell is going on here.. was anybody able to get into the system.. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANYBODY RECEIVE THERE PAYMENT YET!! sigh..
No system access and no payment today. I filed via webcert on Sunday the 27th and was expecting payment (on card) Tuesday 11/29/11. Again i was thrown into the black hole, and by the way, it’s only $50 a week now after they cut my FED-ED benefits from $450, for an unexplained reason by the EDD. God Damn you EDD.
just spoke to a Human being at EDD. Inquired about my absent payment as of Tuesday, and he said that an interview has been scheduled and payment has been withheld. No reason for the scheduled interview was given because he claimed the system hasn’t updated yet. he asked me to call back again tomorrow to find out the reason for the scheduled interview. No money here, if and when the money comes, it will all go to paying the late fees and punishment fees for being late. So now, i’m worst than i was last week, while next week will be even more worst than this one. I’m going to sleep now and wait for the three day pay rent or quit notice.
How did you get thru? I have been trying since 8:00 this morning to speak to someone.
It’s EDD, the most mysterious, unpredictable, unreliable, weird and anti customer service org. in the state. I called @ 09:12 first attempt, the recorded jerk connected me, and one minute later a lady answered and of course gave me the bad news, a scheduled interview for an unknown reason, therefore no money for me. Sometimes i think they filter callers by their social security number….??? another mystery. Keep trying,i hope you’ll get thru.
dec 1 and still no payment(from edd/bofa) into my account for two weeks ending nov. 19. And no continued claim form which I should be mailing back to EDD this Sunday (Dec. 4). This not being able to get ANYBODY on the phone no matter what number you call (… more calls than we can handle …) and not even able to get information through the “convenient” automated system (system “unavailable)is driving me NUTS.
Same I been trying all week.. tHis is totally ridiculous
My payment, which I normally should have received by Wednesday (Nov. 30th) into my Bank of America account hasn’t been deposited yet either. In my first call, yesterday Thursday, to the Automated Self Service number for my payment information the recording told me that the service was unavailable. I called again this morning (Dec. 2nd) and the recording said it couldn’t find my ID in the system. Still no love at the bank.
Im still waiting also.. I cant get through, cant email and no notices in the mail. Im assuming they are behind from the Holidays. I usually overnight mine to them and this was the first time I did not do it. They have ten days from the date they receive it to pay you. Day ten is next tuesday. Guess its time to get any job rather than keep interviewing. EDD is the worst thing ever. They shouldnt even offer it becuase it just causes more problems.
Same boat here. Usually get paid Tues or Wed. And nothing yet as of this morning. The automated system still works 50% of the time and lists my mid Nov. payment as my last one. Also not able to get thru to get live help. I don’t understand why they make it so hard and full of worry for people who are just barely trying to make it by. Don’t they understand most people pay bills on the 1st??
Anyone get paid yet? I’m on day 8/10 since filing on Nov. 27 and no payment yet nor reply from EDD email.
I have not been paid. I sent my claim form on 11/21. No response to my emails and no luck with the phone line. Received next pay periods claim form in he mail ,which I sent to EDD today. But there was no account information, as in paid information or claim balance information on the upper stub. Something is wrong. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this, or it is just me. I assume most people have gotten their payment since no one is posting. It would be nice to know if anyone been paid benefits since after Thanksgiving?
@Anonymous2, Today is Monday the 6th and you have described my own situation almost exactly. I have also received my next periods Claim Form but no payment, I got the Stub for the 1st of the 2 weeks saying I reported too much income for that week but no mention of the 2nd week for which I worked only a few hours. I was unable to get my payment information over the automated line (says it doesn’t recognize my SS and Pin #.) and calling the regular number the recording says that there are too many calls for it to accept mine. How are you emailing EDD?
I am on maternity leave and I only received my first payment that ended on the 15th. Tmrw will be 22 days since my last payment. I’ve been calling them sincerest Wednesday n can’t get through. I’ve emailed them and no response. I keep checking this site to see if anyone has any news on what’s going on.
My last payment was 3 weeks ago. My claim form said I had over $2000 remaining. I’ve not received any other news or payment since. I filed Nov 27
Bill, its located at the EDD’s website under the contact section. It has an option called “ask EDD”. Fill out the form with your information, which department you wish to contact, reason for your inquiry, and finally your personal message. Then they will not respond to you within 2 weeks. That’s how long I’ve been waiting for my first email to them. That’s my experience at least. I’m going to call again tomorrow in hopes of finding out WTF is up. What a mess.
I sent my claim form in on 11/20/2011–I figured Thanksgiving would delay my payment a Day (Expecting it on the 25th) Well California celebrates Lincoln’s Birthday on 11/25/11. Lovely, just lovely. So, waiting and calling and calling and calling (click repeat) Rolls eyes! I have e-mailed them everyday since Dec.1 2011—No response..I feel like I’m Alice falling down the rabbit hole!—It’s a helpless,scary,sick feeling having your money in someone Else’s hands–and that somebody isn’t answering the phone or emails. The least they can do is post on the EDD site what the big hold up here is. Something. Anything.
This isn’t a Very Merry Christmas
@Anonymous2, Thanks, found it. I’ll submit the form and keep my fingers crossed. Curious, we here on this forum must represent quite a few other people in the same situation. What I find even more odd is that some of us have said they have received their next period Claim forms indicating that EDD thinks everything’s business as usual. Like they skipped a payment for everyone without knowing it but some people must have gotten through on their phone system. After all, they must be talking to somebody, right?
Hey Bill logic would say they have accountants that would notice an overage in their funds if massive payments were skipped and look into it, but as we are noticing it does seem possible because no one has any real news or answers, just run around.
@RB, I agree, logic would, but here we all are anyway. I just talked to a neighbor who did get her payments for November. I wonder if there’s a common denominator with all of us? My payment would have been for the 2 week period ending Saturday Nov. 26th.
That’s the same period I am missing.
It’s been 10 days that I mailed my claim for in. No luck. I re-submitted via Webcert today for the same two week period. If it goes through and I get paid, will update.
Have tried calling the EDD customer service line at least 25-30 times in the last 3 days, and have NEVER spoken to an actual person. No matter what time of day it is, I can get as far as “press 0 to speak to a representative”, and when I do, it says “we’re too busy to answer your call, try us another time”. What do I have to do to actually speak to someone?!
@Ames, from a conversation with one of the EDD reps, she told me the worst day to call is Monday. Tuesday is also bad, as are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. But Monday’s the worst. LOL, hope that narrows it down. ;D
just following up with everyone…I had my telephone interview today and was told that Web-Cert had issues and marked all my answers “NO” They said it happened to a number of people and that the just needed to verify that the answers were actually “YES” All in all, it was cleared up and I was told that the payments for weeks ending in Nov. 12 and Nov 19 would be sent to me within 7 days along with my claim form for Weeks ending in Nov 26 and Nov 3. It took almost 16 days since my claim was filed to get to the bottom of every thing but I’m glad its over. Lesson learned? Don’t use web cert…fill it out manually and just send it on time. Good luck everyone.
Finally got paid after refilling thru Webcert today for a November 27 claim. Either they are just late or lost some claims.
@frustrated, thanks for the follow up. It’s good to know that EDD is finally addressing the problem. I did file manually so the problem may go deeper than just Web-Cert. I’ve been unable to get through and haven’t heard anything back from an email I sent a couple days ago. Good luck.
Hi Everyone, just a quick update on my own situation regarding this. Today I received an email in response to the EDD Web form I submitted on Dec. 6th about my non-payment for the pay period ending Nov. 26th. Here’s the reply I got:
Thank you for your inquiry. Your payment for week ending 11/26/11 is being sent for authorization today. Please allow 3-5 days for the payment to be processed to your debit card.
So once I get that payment that should bring this little episode to a close for me anyhow. Perhaps EDD is catching up with this problem. I hope everyone here gets their payment soon. Take care,
Glad to see that they are getting this straightened out. Best of luck everyone!
Paid today. It had been over a month since I was last paid. Finally got answers to my emails yesterday. I hope everyone else has as well. Good luck to all.
anyone know or can answer this I cerified on Christmas yesterday, do you think I will get paid on tuesday being that it is a holiday and that the offices are closed
I certified on Christmas as well. No payment today. Typically my payments are on Tuesday when I certify online but I was unaware the offices were closed. Anyone else have the same issues?
I have the same issue, certified on Christmas and consistently get payment by Tuesday. All banks were closed and no processing done on Monday Dec. 26. If you receive your payment on the EDD Debit Card, this may be the reason. Delay is most likely because of B of A. We should get payment tomorrow.
I did not receive payment as of December 28th on my EDD Debit Card BofA account.. is anyone else missing their electronic payments? I did mail my claim form so I hope with the holidays it is delayed due to closure and not a phone interview or mess up somewhere. The anxiety EDD adds on top of finding a job is very depressing. Honestly I wish I never had to take the EDD option in life.
i haven’t got mine either. i usually get mine on wednesday. ad i drop it off at the post office directly on sunday.
I sent Claim form on friday night cause monday the post office was closed. I wanted to get earily jump on it but i still haven’t receive my payment i usually get on tueday.Does anybody know whats going on i never had this issue.
I sent my claim form on Thursday and have yet to receive my payment as well. I called EDD and got the usual high volume of calls message. I’m really hoping to get my deposit tomorrow. If anyone gets paid or receives an update from EDD, please let me know.
I just talked to B of A and they told me that they received an update from EDD saying there is a major delay in funds being deposited (obviously) but we should be receiving payment in 24-48 hours. She said it’s possible to receive funds tomorrow but due to the holiday, it would most likely be Tuesday.
just talk to EDD! they said they received my claim form but don’t know when they r going to process it! Wow! it must b hard for them to type some keys and send it again WOW! Can I Get That job?
I sent my Continued Claim Form into the EDD (via postal mail) nearly 2 weeks ago. I just got another Continued Claim form a couple days ago with the usual boxes to mark; although this time I noticed that at the top of my form, the payment for 12-10-11 to 12-17-11 is $0.00.
Excuse me? What the hell? So I’m not getting anything for that week? Why?! And to top it off, I have had NOTHING deposited into my account since December 8th, 2011. It’s December 31st, 2011, 9:50pm and I checked my account just several minutes ago; NO FUNDS DEPOSITED. I have $8.00 in my account and no way of knowing when the hell anything else will be deposited. Obviously getting through to EDD is a joke. I’ve tried that for the past week to no avail.
Anyone else encounter anything like this? This is seriously pissing me off.
I also can’t make a pin to check the status of my payment over the phone because apparently the WEEKLY BENEFIT AMOUNT I have been receiving isn’t correct when I enter it into the system. That’s the one thing holding me back from getting the pin; I don’t know what WBA they want me to come up with because obviously the one I know about isn’t correct. It’s like a secret password that no one told me about but expects me to know.
Same here this is BOGUS!
i thought that having an edd card would make payment transactions faster but it seems to just be a joke! people need their money to SURVIVE! i Wonder if Obama can do anything to speed up the process.. “Obama if you stumble upon this message please help us!” WE NEED OUR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE MONEY.
I don’t know if I should be happy that I am not the only one having issues but has anyone received payment since January 24th? Does anyone have a phone number that doesn’t result in “too many callers … please call back later.”?
Im in the same boat as the resent rest. I have done 2 claim forms via webcert with no such deposit. The extention award balance shows 8k, yet on the cert form it shows $0.00… Ive called endlessly on both english and spanish lines with no luck!
