My money just showed up minutes ago in BOA site. It’s dated 1/22…but it didn’t show up until 1/23.

Better late than never, I guess.


Payment not made

in Where's my Money!?

EDD site “claim history” shows status PAID for last two weeks, but “Payment Activity” doesn’t show a payment issue for last night. BOA shows no payment, and EDD phone lines seem to be jammed! What’s going on?

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.

Edd office is a joke!

I filed for unemployment benefits on 12/12/2016. I didn’t get a phone interview until 01/03/2017. I was approved for benefits on 01/06/2017. I requested Ui Paper forms twice and to no anvail recieved no forms. I found out about Ui online and certified through ui online but first I had to call ui online support for my customer account number because EDD never sent me my customer account number either. I was told by ui online rep I neeeded to call edd officce because my account doesn’t look in good hands. on 01/16/2017 I call EDD. Through trial and error he resolved my account problems. My Claim rep acidentally put an extra day before my intital claim for payment and din’t waive the first week as the waiting period. She also didn’t correct my current status because my previous unemployment many years ago was disqualified. The edd rep asked me if I still had my previous card. I said no and would need a new debit card. He said ok no problem, A card will be shipped out to you tomorrow and be there by 01/24/2017. I call BOA today to find out my previous card is still activated so I had to cancel the previous card , request a new card and pay $10 for express shipping because my rent is due before reg shipping date feburary 7th. I am expecting me card on 01/27/2017. I’ll keep this post updated as to if my card arrives on time or not. I am infuriated with the EDD Office. This experience is un-fucking believable. This is money I PAID. The government isn’t giving me a helping hand. I worked hard for this fucking money! How fucking dare they take their sweet time to pay me money I paid them!!!!

EDD and BOA Have Been Kind

August 21, 2016

in Tips

I have been on unemployment now for two months. I waited the two weeks like everyone else (which sucked), but have received my deposits consistently the whole time.

I have to recertify every other Sunday and usuall submit the Web-Cert at midnight going into Sunday. For the last two months I have been getting my deposit by 8:30 pm the same Sunday.

I know it sounds weird, but YES, I DO certify and get my deposit on the same Sunday.

I figure as long as I keep things simple on my end, I wont have any problems on theirs.

Also, I recently had my wallet stolen, and was allowed by BOA to have my balance sent to Western Union for a small fee (+-$10)to keep me afloat until the new card arrived.

I don’t go into anything with high hopes concerning the EDD, but am so far satisfied with how things turn out.

Although it isn’t a perfect system, it works.

Web Cert

Hi There!

I am just hoping someone out there can answer my question for me as I am new to the whole edd thing. I did my webcert this morning and I don’t recall receiving a confirmation that it had been received. Under the claim summary portion of the webpage it says that they have paid me for the weeks ending in 5/7 and 5/14, obviously there’s nothing on my BOA card yet, Im just wondering if they send payments that fast or if something is wrong! Much thanks in advance!

My benefits are late because EDD said they haven’t recieved my continued disability form which I sent 2 weeks ago. Anyways I went into the EDD office and the very helpful lady approved my payment right there but how long before it shows on BOA card does anyone know?? Thanks!!!
