continued claim form

Hi! So I just received the “Notice of unemployment insurance claim files” and on page 2, where it outlines my “maximum benefit amount” , “total wages” , “weekly benefit amount” etc…..all of those fields are $0.00. Even wages. Which is obviously wrong. But it let me file my first continued claim form. But there is no payment of funds.

Now I noticed on page 3, a tiny sentence that says “If you work for a federal agency, your wages must be requested from that federal agency. You will receive a Notice of Amended unemployment award, with these wages added”

Am I reading this correctly that I have to wait for them to receive my federal wages before they will dispense unemployment funds??

Thank you all so much!

Exhibiting symptoms of confusion here, hope someone here can help. Three weeks ago, I applied for UI, had a phone interview on 8/30/2016. After which, I certified for UI benefits online. I have not received an approval or denial letter from EDD, however. When I check my UI account online, it shows EDD issued one payment for 2nd week and the 1st was the (Waiting Period Served for week ending 08/19/2017). So far so good, now. Keep in mind I have yet to receive and debit card or approval or denial letter from EDD. What I did get in the mail was, continued claim form for the next two weeks. Here is my confusion, I login to my UI account this morning and under “notification” it reads:
“Reopen Your Claim

If you have not certified for benefits for a period of time or you have never certified during this benefit year, you must reopen your claim”

and just below that it reads, under notifications.

09:00 a.m.

In-Person Appointment

Reemployment Eligibility Assessment

You have an in-person appointment scheduled. You must appear at the date and time shown. Failure to attend this appointment may affect your eligibility to receive Unemployment Insurance benefits. A letter was sent to you containing information about your appointment. If you have not received this letter before your appointment date, contact us.

Does this suggest that my UI claim was denied and I have to reapply (hence the reopen your claim title)? and there is a link to reopen claim. Since its a holiday weekend, I cant get in touch with edd rep. Hoping someone here can help me understand, if my claim was denied and that I have to reapply.
Thank you all in advance.

So I certify with Telecert beacuse the online/mobile cert always errors out or won’t let me log in. As many of you know, If a state holiday falls on a Monday Telecert demands you mail in your continued claim form. My question is… if I just wait untill after the holiday and call will it go through? Beacuse id rather not wait the 10 days they estimate for the paper form to be processed.

Purge on Claim

January 26, 2017

in ¿Confused?

I filed a claim on 4/10/16. I was eligible. They sent a letter to sign up for UI Online to do my weekly certs online. I served my waiting period and received one week of benefits of 220.00 then found a job. I reported i started working. Unfortunately i had to leave my job so I quit. I knew i wouldn’t be eligible for UC so i didn’t reopen my claim. Although my job reported it to edd and i received a letter stating i was inelgible due to quitting and not checking to see if i could work something with my employer. It stated i need to make over 1100.00 to qualify to receive benefits on my continued claim form. I found a job in November 2016. I was told it would be long term. With no warning on Dec 19th 2016 I was told they had to let me go. She stated it wasn’t working out which is strange because i know i was doing well. She told me it was at will. I asked whats that and she told me laid off. The paper i received said Terminated which i didn’t notice till i got home because of i didn’t want to be where i wasn’t wanted. I shook their hands and told them thank you for the opportunity.
i made more than the amount to reopen my claim so i did. I had a phone interview on 1/5/17. I saw on the UI Online that i was able to certify for benefits. I did and it stated disqualification. I received no letter nothing.i emailed edd to find out why i was disqualified. 7 days later i received a response on 1/20/2017. She said I’m elgible but i need to send my wages. On 1/23/2017 i called edd and the lady gave me a fax and said they would purge it. There’s been no changes they received my next weekly certs and it states disqualified. I called 1/25/2017 And still they said there’s nothing that says i sent my wages. I sent it Monday and tuesday. My question is how long does it take for them to purge my claim because i do qualify for sure. I’m clueless ive never been fired and i never did a continued claim form. Thank you in advance.

I submitted my continued claim form through UI Online Tuesday(2/3/2015) my transactions show paid but nothing in my edd card. This is my second continued claim form ,so I’m past the waiting period.
Has anyone else been through this and is this normal to show paid ?
Really frustrated and behind on bills as we all are.
Thanks for the comments in advance!

Should I certify online as well?

December 15, 2015

in Tips

I mailed in my claim form yesterday, and later on that day I got the award letter and account number info mail from Ed so I set up my account. Since I mailed in my continued claim form, would it be necessary to certify online as well?

I recieved the continued claim form and a noticed to sign up on the cal job site today. I never recieved the award letter. I have been on w’2 for the last two years. Do anyone know what may be the issue? Or am I not qualified? I got laid off from my last employer so I’m not sure what can be the issue why I haven’t gotten my award letter. Please kindly advise. Thank you
