All submitted entries - starting from the most recent

So I (unintentionally) misreported the wages from a recent temporary position. I made about $500 in two weeks of February, but reported it all in a single claim week after I’d already gotten paid. EDD docked one week’s payment, and I thought that was that.

Since the numbers/dates didn’t match up exactly, they recently flagged my account and told me I had a phone interview scheduled next week.

Now, I know I messed up because I didn’t read the fine print. But if anyone has had a similar experience… what exactly can I say during this interview to ensure that I continue getting the rest of my UI claim?

Will they accept the fact that this was an honest mistake and perhaps dock another week or two as penalty, or charge me for fraud and stop payments altogether?

Thanks~

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.
SITE QUESTION:
Is “share your story” the same as “ask a question”? I guess “i’m confused” covers it. ­čÖé
Thanks!

So confused!!!

in Pissed!

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!

So I checked the box to be paid waiting for my appeal when I was denied. Then the IME denied me and I got an overpayment. Well I appealed it, and I won. So I get an email today that they applied my payment to my overpayments? WTF! The judge reversed it, so I shouldn’t have any overpayment. It’s even stated on the paperwork that the date is as of the date before my IME. And of course I can’t get anyone to help me. I called the overpayment number and they told me they can’t help me because they just get the information to collect and that’s it. And of course you can’t get a hold of anyone on the phone.

I was denied EDD Benefits over two weeks ago but they keep sending me claim forms to certify for benefits. Why are they doing this to me??
