All submitted entries - starting from the most recent

This is my first time accepting UI, so I have had some difficulties with the process…when I first certified, I did not realize that the withholding they ask you to opt into was mandatory. I was under the impression it was some kind of extra withholding, like what you do on a W-2.

For my most recent check I have been opting in for the withholding, but I am not sure how to correct that I did not withhold on previous checks. I don’t want to be penalized by the IRS for this. Did anyone make this mistake and know how to fix?

Hey all. So I’ve been telecert every Sunday at midnight for the last two months and always get paid on that sane Sunday around 7:00pm. It’s noon the following Monday and when I called an hour ago they said they haven’t even received my telecert yet in there system but I have the confirmation. Is anyone else having this problem?

in Where's my Money!?

Certified 5 weeks already and haven’t received a debit card. Is this normal? What number do I call??? Also if I chose to have taxes withheld.I do get that back when I file my income taxes, right?

in Where's my Money!?

So far here’s my experience with CA EDD. I recently applied for unemployment on 7/10/17. After the one week waiting period I began receiving my money the first week on 7/31. I certified online, and the first full 2 week check came in the following week as they were late with mailing the paperwork. I posted it on Sunday, and by Sunday night the money was in my B of A account. However 2 weeks later when I certified for my continued claim, I noticed EDD had my money pending. I thought it was because I needed to attend the REA appointment which happened to fall on the same week. However, after the appointment I noticed the money was still pending. I finally called Thursday morning the 800-300-5616 number and I was able to get someone in 5 minutes and lo and behold the customer service rep told me that a mail they sent to my previous employer came back as undeliverable which is why they held my payment. What?!!! I was pissed, because they did not send me a letter or email telling me about this. Anyway I gave them the address of my employer, they had something way different from a company with a similar name, and the lady said my money will be paid out in 24-48 hours. Wow! Luckily I called or I would’ve still been waiting for my money. With bills to pay and school supplies to purchase I was getting worried. So if you see your money saying pending after a day or two do not hesitate to call, these suckers will hold your money for any little thing. Call Thursday or Friday mornings around 8a.m. to get a hold of someone.

Aug 23 2017 Still not received my money on debit why do they lag so !!

New to EDD.

Received first check and it said
under that it said that my “claim balance after this payment is $xxxx” (also want to confirm that the amount listed is the total balance I have correct? just confused by the way they word things on all these documents)

it also says you “make a new witholding choice on each claim form you submit” then under there is claim form for me to fill out.

I am wondering if i need to fill this out and send it back? Stating that i am currently looking for work and that nothing has changed. Or do i only need to send it in IF SOMETHING HAS CHANGED? Just confused on all the details and specifics for EDD. I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Also – the amount i received from my first check… will that be the set amount each time?

I sent my claim out late and dont know if I’ll still get it if it was sent late
