Now, I usually certify my Benefits early Sunday Morning. It usually goes from pending to paid almost instantly. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes. Today (02/11/2018) Ive been on pending since 6:00am. Thats when I certified. Its 3:05pm. Im in Southern California. Usually hits my BofA card no later than 7:00pm Sunday night. Anybody having this long “pending” problem? Let me know.


hi Folks,

do you know what are the payment options on EDD if BofA all over sudden decides to close the Debit prepaid account?

BofA just informed me that the account is closed which is very awkward.

How should I proceed?

This is my first regular payment. Last time I had to wait for the BofA card to come. I certified then for those two weeks on Oct. 8. The website says that the payment was Oct. 8th. So I certified at midnight and it says as status as paid but as of yet there is nothing on my BofA card. When might I except it. I seen some comments saying they would get it Sunday from 7-10. I was hoping for more feedback.

3 Weeks certified and have not seem dime one. Though when I go UIonline….shows that I was paid already. Yet when I call BofA it says I don’t have any money in my account.
What the hell’s really going on???

My unemployment payment from EDD was deposited to my EDD/BofA debit card account on May 28 and I have not been allowed to transfer it via online transfer to my bank account due to BofA “transfers temporarily unavailable” since then. I contacted BofA and they said yes it is down for transfers but I can “use my card at an ATM” and EDD at UI online responded to my complaint to them about BofA saying it is strictly an internal Bof A matter and that the suggest I use my card at an ATM. THEY CHOSE BOFA AS THEIR PARTNER IN CRIME BY SPECIFYING THEM AS THE SOLE VENDOR RATHER THAN JUST DEPOSITING THE FUNDS IN A CLIENT BANK ACCOUNT. BofA is now sitting on my money and refusing to transfer it via their “temporarily unavailable” transfer system and will not say when it will be fixed. I will go to BofA tomorrow to remove all my funds and then drive to my bank, deposit etc. but where do I bill BofA for my lost time and mileage? I am then going to contact my state senator and rep and request they look into BofA having a sole source contract they are not adhering to and to replace them as vendor ASAP! Anyone else want to join in or just go RIOT at BofA????? REALLY PISSED!!!!

My SDI benefits got deposited into the BofA EDD account late Friday 5/26. After logging on to the website to initiate the transfer to my bank, I see a message stating “Online funds transfers are temporarily unavailable.” This is the only way I access my money as I am bound by principle to not swipe that card and let BofA profit even a dime of interchange fees off me.

Calling into the “customer service” line is useless. They transfer you to the “funds transfer” department and twice now I have been on hold for over two hours(!) and eventually disconnected before getting to speak to someone, let alone initiate a transfer. Today is Thursday 6/1 and the online funds transfer system is still down. No one seems to care over there at BofA’s EDD card customer service so today I called the LA Times to see if they might be interested in reporting on this.

It’s really convenient that due to the nature of this partnership, no one, not EDD nor BofA, is in a position to assume responsibility for matters such as these. If this were BofA’s regular checking customers they would NEVER allow ACH transfers to be down for 5+ business days. People would be withdrawing their money any way they could and there would be a run on their bank. File this under Pissed!/Where’s My Money?!

My 14 month contract ended on 12/31/2016. I applied for CA EDD and no problem. I got it. I was unemployed for 6 weeks and I took a six week temp job with a “TEMP AGENCY” in Feb and it ended on 3/31/2016. I certified the first two weeks on April and had to do an EDD eligibility on 4/20/2017. All the rep asked me if the “TEMP AGENCY” was my last employer. I said yes and I been certifying each week. That is all the EDD rep asked. She ended the call. I still have not had my BofA card funded yet and I have not received any notifications if I am cut off. Should I call them on Monday? For my 6 week assignment, I have an email from TEMP AGENCY that the assignment will end because they filled it with an internal person for that company and there is no work available.
