new claim

Find out all things related to opening a new claim or re opening an old one.

I filed my new claim on week of 01/08/17 to 01/14/17. I was approved. I received my notice of award letter. I also had two weeks work of work search to clerify. I mailed them back the same day I got them on Saturday, 1/21/17, I already have my direct deposit set up from the last claim last year. I was wondering if do you think I will get any money this week?

BTW the website keeps crashing, and tele cert wouldnt let me do it either. Paper is the only way I could do it.

Thank you!

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?

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?

So last year I was given a removal from the US Postal Service. Somehow I managed to pass the phone interview and everything worked smoothly. Exhausted all of my benefits. I went back to work, but have since received another removal for the same incident. Once my benefit year ends would I re-open my claim or would I have to file a new claim? Benefit year ends 09/17/2016. Can I file it now or do I have to wait until next Saturday?

I resigned in my first job(a semiconductor industry) after I had an argument with the supervisor.But instead of accepting my resignation,he fired me instead.After the day we quarreled,I decided to filed of Unemployment Insurance.I got through a phone interview.Luckily three weeks during the appeals process,I get a temp job and wasn’t able to attend the hearing process personally as it conflicted with my new work schedule.The judge ruled not in favor and decided against me by not to provide me with my money during those three weeks that I wasn’t employed. Five months later,I got laid off from my new temp job.The temp company told me not to stop coming to company that I am currently working for(a biomedical company) on that particular day as they no longer need my services.I filed for EDD after I have received this notice. Upon registering at UI Online and certifying for my benefits for the first two weeks that I was unemployed, it was stated in my new claim that it was now under appeal now that it was still on the current benefit year when I first lost my job. Why is it so? Will I have to go through another appeals proccess particularly a phone interview and another hearing? Please give insight to my situation.

I collected the final amount on the existing claim year said to expire in September. I have been working on and off and paying into my unemployment funds.
It says I can apply for a new claim 1-5 days prior to expiration. Those this require a new application and phone interview? Or is this automatically approved?
