I’m new to CA EDD. I created my account earlier this month and have now certified for for 4 weeks (12/17 thru 1/13). How long does it normally take for it to accept me? And when am I getting my BOA card?

I understand January is the worst month for unemployment and their budget is so low they only do customer service 4 hours a day… but should it take this long? I feel like it’ll still be pending by the time I certify for the next 2 weeks.

they always busy
NEVER ANSWER THE PHONE

I have a long first name which is more than 12 characters. It was a terrible experience filling out forms both online and paper one as my name wouldn’t fit. anyways after submitting the form, I received a notice stating you are not eligible because your employer is paying you full wages! I have been living pay check to pay check and no! my company was not paying me more than %40 of my wages. I spent most of my paternity leave time filling out forms and calling here and there! This EDD thing needs a lot of attention

Missed REA Appointment

1/16/18 I Missed 8am REA (Re employment Service Eligibility) I was late and the doors lock if your 5 min late. It’s best Not to miss this appointment it is a requirement and it does interrupt your check payment. I attempted to call but no answer so I drove down there and they advise me I could take the second class at 1:30. Even though I attended the same day I still receive a pending on my check until I called the EDD and confirmed i attend. You need to take your letter with you when you attend REA Appointment and arrived 10 minute early. You watch a video educating you on what’s available. They offer you a lot of help from writing up a resume to a Mock interview with Real employers. I discovered that i was not networking. They are there to help you. Enrolling for Cal job is more than updating your resume. It offer you a build in email where employer interested in hiring you leave you a message and list the local jobs in your area something i missed the first time around. It’s expensive to do job search and the career One Stop is a Great tool. If you miss your appointment, don’t be scared it’s best to reschedule right away. It’s Best to call the EDD at 8:am dial the 800 listen and dial 1 for english and when the recording stop 6-7-1 (2 min wait) they stop taking calls at 12pm. Anything your not sure about it’s best to call and write your question down so you don’t forget to ask something. When your check is pending it will tell you if you read it carefully your not in compliance and you call the EDD immediately and satisfy what need to get resolved. Once you resolve it, they will pay you within 48 hours. it can be frightful. I hope this help someone …

So I certified my weeks online, entered where i applied etc etc. the first week says paid but the second one says pending? They both have the same confirmation number and I checked my certification for the 2nd week and I did not accidentally press “too sick to work” or “did not look for work” anyone else having the same issue? (first time this has happened)

I’m in the Bay Area ca I had a delay with my edd payment.. based I was doing everything through mail it wasn’t convenient because the mailman could lose the mail.. that’s why I had my delay. So I ended up just registering on Ui online and I ended up getting my payment that same day after 9pm
