I recently got my unemployment extended since I am going to school. I go to work part time and they said as long as I report the wages when I do work, I can still get the full amount on slow weeks when I don’t work. I have already submitted a few weeks and gotten paid $20-$50 from my usual weekly amount so I know that isn’t the issue (me working).

It has been 3 weeks since I have received a payment and I don’t understand why? Is anyone else having a “pending” payment? I have never been able to reach a representative but I did email them on 06/11/2017 but no response. Any tips or something?

EDD sent me an email saying I can now certify for last 2 weeks. I did so, and then noticed that the home page on UI Online says “disqualified ” next to the 2 weeks I had just been requested to certify for. Does anyone else have this problem? Will the certification and proof of looking for work for the past 2 weeks, override the disqualification message? HELP

So I just got a full time job. Started May 1st 2017 (monday). Wanted to know how to cancel my claim. Also on the EDD website to certify my benefits I see that 4/23-4/29 I didn’t have a job and still looked for work since the job I landed wasn’t guaranteed till I received an email on the 29th confirming that I start on May 1st.

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.

So I checked the box to be paid waiting for my appeal when I was denied. Then the IME denied me and I got an overpayment. Well I appealed it, and I won. So I get an email today that they applied my payment to my overpayments? WTF! The judge reversed it, so I shouldn’t have any overpayment. It’s even stated on the paperwork that the date is as of the date before my IME. And of course I can’t get anyone to help me. I called the overpayment number and they told me they can’t help me because they just get the information to collect and that’s it. And of course you can’t get a hold of anyone on the phone.

My doctor tried to logon to her account to complete my application. She couldn’t remember her password and asked for a reset. It then wants to email her a reset password.

The problem is her account was setup with an email she no longer has access to. She has called the doctor line every day for 4 weeks and they tell her it has been sent to the IT department. The 49 day deadline for filing is in a few days. The deadline for the doctor to respond is also in a few days?

Any ideas?

I was laid off from an employer and quickly filed an EDD claim the next day. They sent me two phone interview times, completed that, and then said I had to “Register for UI online.” However, I had a child 3 years ago and they still have me as a user. They needed me to login with my old user and pw. I didn’t have it. User and pw help go to an old employer’s email address. “sorry we can’t help you.” You need to talk to SDI. No one on the phone at SDI could help. I drove an hour to a local SDI office asking who can help me reset my login and pw. Sorry we don’t do that here. They could see my new claim but couldn’t change a thing. They did change my communication from email to snail mail though. Told me to go back online and request a new temp password via mail. It’s been 30 days since I filed, no real help. I can’t email anyone for help as you need a login and pw to do so. It’s been about a week since my visit to my SDI local branch. When is this nightmare going to be over? Who is in charge of EDD? How can they expect you to have the same email address access for your basically a 10+ year period? How many of us really stay with one employer for that length of time? Even one says, well you should have a personal email, well I did, but Verizon shut down everyone’s email without any knowledge. That was fun too. What’s next? Do I lobby my local congressperson? Who is running this whole racket?
