I spoke with a woman at EDD today because I usually expect my checks on Mondays and figured I’d get it on Tuesday due to the holiday. Turns out it was just delayed because of Labor Day and payment was submitted “this morning” hopefully which means I’ll receive my check in the next two days. Papa needs to get some new glasses.
Anyway the point of the story is that I asked her about the cards (maybe another reason payment was delayed) and she told me that only half of the people have been scheduled to receive the card so far. So it sounds like its going to be a process. Also, “Beware” (her word) that the cards are being sent from OUT OF STATE so it wont actually get to you by the 3-5 business days advertised in the letter.
Still don’t get how that would result in a month-long wait for them like I’ve read around this site.
