Edd office is a joke!

in Pissed!

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

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!!!

15 tips from your friends here at BOA

1 BOA ONLY SERVICES THE CARD (balances, deposits that have been made already, trans etc.)

2 BOA CANNOT SEE PENDING DEPOSITS (contact the state in which you are receiving benefits)

3 IF YOU ARE RECIEVING BENEFITS FROM CA EDD AND HAD A CARD FROM RECIVING PREVIOUSLY BUT NO LONGER HAVE CARD AND ARE WAITING ON A CRD FOR A NEW CLAIM CALL BOA TO REQUEST A NEW ONE THEY USE THE SAME ACCOUNT FOR ANY BENEFITS; ONE WILL NOT BE SENT TO YOU UNLESS YOU CALL

4 BOA HAS NO ABILITY TO CHANGE ADDRESSES FOR CA EDD ACCOUNTS, CA EDD ARE ONLY ONES ABLE TO MAKE CHANGE (if your calling them to change make sure you tell them to update for BOA if you DO NOT then address will only be updated on CA EDDs system)

5 BOA DOES NOT KNOW TIMEFRAMES FOR THE AMOUNTS YOU RECIEVE CONTACT EDD FOR THAT INFORMATION OR ANY CLAIM INFORMATION WHAT SO EVER

6 THERE IS NO ACTUAL ACCOUNT WITH BANK OF AMERICA IT IS A PREPAID DEBIT CARD ISSUED BY GOVERNMENT WHICH MEANS YOU CANNOT TAKE MONEY OUT INSIDE THE BRANCH WITHOUT THE CARD

7 IF YOU HAVE A LOST OR STOLEN CARD CALL BANK OF AMERICA NOT EDD BOA IVR 8666929374 SELECT LOST/STOLEN OPTION

8 YOU CANNOT TRANSFER MONEY INTO YOUR PERSONAL BANK ACCOUNT WITHOUT THE CARD YOU NEED THE CARD

10 IF EDDs WEBSITE SAYS A PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE WAIT TILL IT POSTS WE UNDERSTAND YOU NEED YOUR MONEY BUT WE HAVE NO ABILITY TO MAKE IT GO FASTER

11 POSTING TIME FOR DEPOSITS IS MIDNIGHT-9AM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY (weekends dont count even if your payment was made on a weekend wont post till next buissnes day)

12 AFTER YOUR PAYMENT IS MADE BY EDD DEPENDING ON THE TIME THEY ISSUED IT TO YOU IT CAN TAKE UP TO 2 BUISSNESS DAYS TO POST ONTO YOUR ACOCUNT

13 THERE IS NO EXACT DAY DEPOSITS ARE MADE SO DONT RELY ON EXACT TIME, DAY, WEEK etc. EVERYTIME IT IS DIFFERENT YOU MIGHT BE CONSISTENT FOR AWHILE BUT ITS DOESNT MEAN YOUR GURANTEED EVERYTIME

14 FUNDS TRANSFER TAKE 2 BUISSNESS DAYS AND CANNOT BE CANCELED BY ANYONE ONCE THERE SUBMITTED THERE IS DISCLOSURES AS WELL THAT STATE THAT ONLINE BEFORE YOU TRANSFER

15 IF YOU HAD A CARD THAT HAS EXPIRED AND HAVNT RECIVED NEW ONE BEFORE THE EXP DATE (cards valid till end of month) CALL TO REQ ONE WE USUALLY SEND ONE OUT FIRST WEEK OF CARD EXPIRING

I filed for Unemployment 12/13/15 and finally got approved on 01/22/16 and I have funds but no card yet and i switched to Direct Deposit to avoid this issue in the future but what do I regarding the missing card? Do i contact Unemployment or BOA?
