System Upgrade Sucks!!

New system and can’t log in! Kept telling me my password not correct. Tried requesting a new password…stated EDD sent me email with a link to get new one. Almost 4 hours later and still no email! I am now locked out of my account! I am mailing my claim form because who knows how long it will take to fix this. This is the reason I made sure they continued to send me paper claims even though I was doing online. I’m so pissed right now! More reasons to delay paying us!!

So I’m very confused here. I worked a part time job for 2 years (20 hours a week or so) and the restaurant i worked for was closed. I’m also a full time student, so i thought i would take advantage of California’s unemployment while looking for a job and going to school. So i applied and got my debit card and first payment, but haven’t been paid again, and that was 2 months ago. I’m having a phone interview, but i’m confused, do i need to get a full time job? Full time would be difficult with my schedule, so I am only wanting to get a part time job, like the one i filed my claim off of. I believe that they are questioning my eligibility due to me saying no to the question regarding if I’m available to work full time on the claim form. So i put no to that, since i want to work part time, not full time, and still answered yes to looking for work. So my question is, do i need to get a full time job to get benefits? Even after applying for unemployment on a part time job?

Hello There,

I have been receiving UI benefits for about a few months now. I got a letter stating I’ve been scheduled for an interview because I didn’t list a job on my original claim form. I don’t even remember working for the employer and it’s not the one that is due to me getting unemployment benefits.
I probably worked there for less than a couple weeks for extra money during the time because I seriously don’t remember and I didn’t get or file it or my taxes.

Will this disqualify me or will I get continued benefits? Go to a higher tier? Phone interview is next week. Help please!

New to EDD.

Received first check and it said
“WEEK PAID & AMT RECEIVED” … k cool!
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 filed for unemployment in Dec and because of where my base period landed it did not capture the majority of my income I recently made. SO I never filed an online claim form and canceled my claim to refile in Jan to adjust my base. It worked and I ended up receiving an award letter that went from $100 per week from the award in Dec to $400 per week in Jan. I went to file my claim form online today and webcert is telling me I can fill out two weeks of continued claim forms but the problem is webcert is still showing the balance of my initial canceled claim in Dec at $100 per week and not the new claim of $400. Should I still fill out the claim forms on webcert and assume I will be paid the correct amount of $400 and the site will be updated or do I need to wait and call?
