continued claim form

My disability was supposed to end as of 2/15. My doctor submitted my continued claim form but I am not sure of the date. I got enough email saying that I am extended through 5/4. I have been paid through 2/17. Does anyone know if there another 7 day waiting period for continued payments from the date the continued form was received? Or do you get paid as if it never lapsed? I checked BofA and there is no payment yet. It’s only Monday though. I would appreciate any help! Thanks.

Hey all – after submitting my first continued claim form, I got my second claim form in the mail. Instead of a check (or a BofA debit card) at the top of my second claim form it said: “NO BENEFITS ARE PAYABLE BECAUSE THE WEEK ENDING XXXX HAS BEEN APPLIED TO YOUR DISQUALIFICATION.” I received this second claim form 5 days ago. I’ve yet to receive an explanation letter informing me for the reason or duration of my disqualification. I put an email inquiry in with EDD but they don’t always respond in a timely fashion. For those who have been through this, how soon after this should I receive a notice explaining my disqualification and the length of period I’ll be in the penalty box? For context: I filed for unemployment several years ago after getting laid off from my first post-college job. I didn’t realize that you had to report part-time temp work while collecting unemployment. Dumb, I know, but I didn’t. Now, more than 5 years later EDD sent me a notice saying I’d been overpaid by $3k and I promptly set up a monthly payment system with them. But, then, bam! I got laid off from my current job and could no longer make the overpayment monthly payments. I still owe about $2.5k. What’s not clear to me yet is (1). How long my penalty/disqualification period is for; (2). What happens after the disqualification period has ended. Do they automatically deduct a portion of my overpayment balance from each bi-weekly claim payment or do they deduct 100% of each bi-weekly claim payment until my debt is settled? Thanks for any help you can provide!

OCTOBER 2014:
Got laid off.

EARLY NOVEMBER 2014:
Applied for unemployment benefits;

Registered for Cal-Works and uploaded my resume to their system;

Received NOTICE OF UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AWARD from EDD listing my benefit amount;

Never received further communications from EDD

EARLY DECEMBER 2014:
I write EDD (via Ask EDD email) to say I have not received any further communication since receiving NOTICE OF UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AWARD;

EDD responds that it has now been more than 30 days since I filed my claim so I have to refile/re-open my claim;

I figure, it’s probably just a mail mix up and I’ll just do what they say and re-open my claim.

EARLY JANUARY:

Another 30 days goes by and I do not receive any email, mail, phone messages from EDD;

I contact Ask EDD again via email and explain I’ve now filed twice, but after filing/re-opening, I never receive further communication from them. And, yes, I have confirmation numbers from filing/re-opening.

YESTERDAY:
I finally get an email response from EDD after 12 days. The response says that they have no record of receiving my first continued claim form back from me and that because it has been more than 30 days again, I will need to refile/reopen;

This is insanity. How can I send them my first continued claim form if THEY won’t send it to me first?? It’s been a couple of years since I’ve had to dealt with EDD. I know things are mostly electronic now, but don’t they still have to send you your FIRST continued claim form via snail mail? Their own Web-Cert page says that before you can start Web-Cert you have to have NOTICE OF UNEMPLOYMENT AWARD (DE429) – which I *do*, and your CONTINUED CLAIM FORM (DE 4581) – which I do *not*.

Can anyone offer any hope? If I refile/reopen now for a THIRD time, will I finally receive my CONTINUED CLAIM FORM (DE4581) within 30 days of filing? This is getting so depressing.

I received money from my former employer, it is called a cash balance. I didn’t contribute only my former employer did. What do I put in A and B to report this income? Or is it not counted as income. Thank you.

Hello,

Has anyone received a info slip(DE 2361CS) on Fraud Prevention and Detection Activities with there continued claim form? Does this mean I am being investigated for fraud/overpayment?

working part time

Hello, SO I’m currently collecting UI and started a part time job. My part time job will earn less than my weekly benefit.

I’m turning in my first continued claim form this week with the part time job earning.

What I want to know is will EDD stop my payment and set up a phone interview?
or
Will they just adjust my weekly benefit to compensate for the part time earning and pay out the lesser amount on the regularly scheduled day?

Thanks.

I was under the impression that I was supposed to be recieving a continued claim form after recieving a “notice of unemployment insurance award” on 06/20/14. That was a while ago. been out of money for about 3 weeks and all I have left to eat is salted rice. I can’t seem to reach edd by phone at all, just the machine telling me they can’t be reached at this time then it hangs up. after the first I will no longer have a phone to call them with. Feels DOOMED!

Process Outline

Can anyone help shed some light on exactly how the EDD process is supposed to work?

I filed over phone on 8/5 and was told paperwork would be mailed from there. I’ve now received the CalJobs notification and “Continued Claim” form.

Is there supposed to be a packet of materials coming separately that will explain any of this? Is the “continued claim” form what you fill out every two weeks to let them know you’re looking? After how long am I supposed to be called?

Anyone who has a really simple step-by-step outline of what should be happening (so I can proofcheck and make sure it’s actually happening) would be much appreciated.

So I was on unemployment back in 08 and it was relatively easy to maintain your EDD status and keep benefits coming… I was recently let go from a 3+ year(top employee all 3 years) at home depot job because of a bs attendance violation(not a no call-no show) All the upper management is new and attempting to “clean house”… I did my claim and received the phone interview paper, then 2 days later got the bi weekly continued claim form/other beginning UI papers. What do I tell or not tell them on my phone interview?Any advice would be greatly appreciated
