in Pissed!

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!!

in Where's my Money!?

So far here’s my experience with CA EDD. I recently applied for unemployment on 7/10/17. After the one week waiting period I began receiving my money the first week on 7/31. I certified online, and the first full 2 week check came in the following week as they were late with mailing the paperwork. I posted it on Sunday, and by Sunday night the money was in my B of A account. However 2 weeks later when I certified for my continued claim, I noticed EDD had my money pending. I thought it was because I needed to attend the REA appointment which happened to fall on the same week. However, after the appointment I noticed the money was still pending. I finally called Thursday morning the 800-300-5616 number and I was able to get someone in 5 minutes and lo and behold the customer service rep told me that a mail they sent to my previous employer came back as undeliverable which is why they held my payment. What?!!! I was pissed, because they did not send me a letter or email telling me about this. Anyway I gave them the address of my employer, they had something way different from a company with a similar name, and the lady said my money will be paid out in 24-48 hours. Wow! Luckily I called or I would’ve still been waiting for my money. With bills to pay and school supplies to purchase I was getting worried. So if you see your money saying pending after a day or two do not hesitate to call, these suckers will hold your money for any little thing. Call Thursday or Friday mornings around 8a.m. to get a hold of someone.

I was approved on 10th of june. I have not recieved a payment for the week of 6-17-17. I’ve been messaged that it was used as a waiting period so their is no benefits. I checked the status of that payment and it says Waiting period served, but wheres the money at? I got paid for 6/24. Why claim 2 weeks for benefits if you only get paid for 1, the system is broken because it is claiming i get paid $205 a week when i get $205 every 2 weeks. It is sunday and i filed for the next 2 weeks of claims and under payment activity it says the 2 weeks which are 7/1 and 7/8 i claimed are now paid for yet the week 6-11-17 is still waiting period servered. It is sunday and my bank account still has no money. When am i going to get paid for any of these weeks? I promised to payback borrowed money by money and im a little scared this money wont come in til like thursday. can anybody please help me out. I’ve sent an email with my regards and i cant call because i cant afford a phone anymore.

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.
