new claim

Hi! So this is my 3rd time being on state disability (California) I just started this new claim early March and I’ve already done one continued claim (2500A) for a 14 day period and now I have to do another one at the end of this 14 day period. I’ve never had these so frequently. Normally it’s every few months or so. Does anyone have any idea why?

So, I usually religiously certify Midnight Sunday Morning or as soon as I wake up at around 6am or 7am, but this time, I forgot about it until Monday and filed my two weeks certification online at 9:48AM. (It’s been almost a year since I’ve needed it much so got out of habit.) Second issue is that this is a new claim. Third issue is that I have a telephone interview scheduled for next Monday. My first guess was that I’d be held back until they interview me. But, then, I was allowed to use the online certification. I am now curious as to whether or not I will get a surprise this Tuesday evening with a load at around 9pm-11pm or so. It’s already 8:15pm, so it seems doubtful: they would have processed the bulk of approvals Monday evening, so today should have been a fast run, and have already happened by 8:15pm. I’m assuming I have to pass the telephone interview and then they will release it for that Tuesday.

what does this mean and how come i have only received my first payment and not the rest of them.

and why does it keep saying to reopen my claim when i had opened a new claim in February and they want me to open another one for the new benefit year? whats that mean.
this in advance

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?
