paper form

All things related to using a paper claim form – find answers here!

It’s my first time back on EDD after over 3 years, and now the online form asks for job “search” info (actually it should say job APPS or CONTACTS!), but allows you to opt out and not complete it.
1. If i opt out of completing the job search will i be screwed?
2. Why would they let us opt out, who would complete it if we don’t have to? (I always SEARCH but didn’t do any apps this week.)
3. If i start the online form and then stop to mail paper instead will i get in trouble? I guess this week i will just mail in the paper form as the box isn’t checked.
Is “share your story” the same as “ask a question”? I guess “i’m confused” covers it. 🙂

For the entire month of January their website has been non-functional and broken. I tried using the paper form and mailing it in. But the money never got transferred. What is the point of this agency?

I just had Week #2 (ending Mar 5) paid after submission of the paper form. I haven’t received the next cert form for Weeks #3 and #4, so I created an EDD Online account and tried to do the cert there. TWICE now, I get forcefully logged out immediately after clicking “Next” to add another job search entry, and not due to timing out. And then ALL my previous entries are lost. It makes it impossible to complete the online form.

When to Tele-cert ?

I have been using the paper form. I’ve been mailing it the day after the 2 weeks to be claimed have ended as it says on it. I haven’t gotten my new form yet for the current weeks, 12/27-1/2 and 1/3-1/9. I may try to Tele-cert. Should I wait until Sunday 1/10 to call like when I would have mailed the form, or try before then to Tele-cert?

I filed a new claim three weeks ago. This past Monday (1/4) I received my UI paper work. After registering with UI I noticed I had weeks to certify for, which I then did online. The next day I received a notice of my award in the mail. On Wednesday I received a paper claim form.

I have not been paid. It still lists as “pending” in UI. Did I make a mistake by certifying via UI? Was I supposed to only certify with the paper form the first time? No interview has been scheduled. The award said I had to meet further eligibility requirements. I registered for CalJobs and updated my resume. I was on UI last year. Usually I get paid the day after certifying. But I’m wondering if I should have waited and certified with the paper form first. I emailed EDD today, since I certified five days ago and there has been no change. It says they received my certification but payment is still pending.

Anyone know if this new ui online thing actually works? Normally i mail in my form on sat and receive funds on tues. This time i certified on ui online on sun. And its wed now and its still listed as pending? So is snail mail processed quicker than thier new system or does it work at all? Has anyone certified using ui online? I hurried and filled out the paper form today as well, hopeing to get paid by friday.

My old claim expired on the 18th of March. I had received a letter from EDD telling me that my claim was about to expire and that I should apply for a new claim 1-5 days before my current claim expires. I applied for a new claim on March 18, 2015. A few days later I received a “Notice of Claim filed letter” but nothing else. No award letter or new claim forms. I should have received my new claim forms by today, but alas nothing. Paper form or webcert.

Has anyone ever experienced this and what course of action have you taken. Since I cant get them on the phone, I plan on going to the office in the morning. Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated
