part time

Hi, so, I’m in the CTB program and I recently got my CTE because my benefits ran out on my current claim. Anyway, I’ve been on a program that is “supposed” to last only 6months. I put it in quotes because you can extend it if you feel you need more time and it doesn’t necessarily mean you are doing dissatisfactory work. I recently got my program extended to January 20, 2018(original end date was October 20) due to my mental health. I have depression an anxiety and for the last few months I was going through a lot of stress because I also work part time and I’m trying to focus on school plus I need to pay bills which as we all know UI doesn’t pay enough even with a part time job. Anyway, I started having suicidal thoughts and I was just going through a downward spiral I seemed out help I’m now in therapy and back on meds. However, that caused delays and I’m not going to be able to finish by October which is why my advisor extended it to January but I’m hoping to finish in December.
When I called EDD to inform them of the change they asked me why and one told me to say about my mental health while another rep told me that I’ll get instantly denied for the extension of my CTE from Oct to Jan because they don’t care for personal reasons. I have a phone interview tomorrow Tuesday I haven’t been able to sleep because I don’t know what I’m going to say or should even say. Living off unemployment is the worst but I need to finish school and I’m also working part time. Can someone advise me on perhaps what I should say? Will I get denied if I mention my setback due to my mental health deteriorating due to massive amount of stress?
The rep who told me Not to mention any tho V personal told me to “just say it was extended, nothing else” but I feel EDD is going to ask why. But why else would schools extend an end date? Please help I’m stressed out. Thank you

So I’m very confused here. I worked a part time job for 2 years (20 hours a week or so) and the restaurant i worked for was closed. I’m also a full time student, so i thought i would take advantage of California’s unemployment while looking for a job and going to school. So i applied and got my debit card and first payment, but haven’t been paid again, and that was 2 months ago. I’m having a phone interview, but i’m confused, do i need to get a full time job? Full time would be difficult with my schedule, so I am only wanting to get a part time job, like the one i filed my claim off of. I believe that they are questioning my eligibility due to me saying no to the question regarding if I’m available to work full time on the claim form. So i put no to that, since i want to work part time, not full time, and still answered yes to looking for work. So my question is, do i need to get a full time job to get benefits? Even after applying for unemployment on a part time job?

Hi everyone, so i recently applied to receive UI benefits and i was approved, i will be getting around 250 a week but i recently got called in for an interview with Spirit halloween, it went well and offered me a position, now that i have that job offer, i dont know wheather to collect the UI benefits or accept the job offer at spirit. i am on here asking because i will only b employed for the holloween season which is one month. if i do accept this job, does anyone know what will happen to my UI benefits? i dont think i will b making as much money if i were to be hired because hours are scarce and it will b part time. My other question is if i do accept the job, after its over, would i b able to re apply for UI benefits NOT through spirit, but through the job i had before?? i really hope i worded this correctly to have ANYONE understand where im coming from or have been in this situation before. PLEASE HELP

THANK YOU

So I am in the field of psychology and had a bunch of hours to complete to get my license as well as a credential since I studied two different fields of psychology. While completing my hours, almost 3,600 I injured my back somehow and ended up needed surgery after two years of trying everything else.

I spent one year working two part time jobs which meant when they ended I could not get unemployment since they were contractual and part-time. My credential hours had 3 paid positions offered within a 60 mile radius of my home and I did not land any of them and took an unpaid internship. As my internship neared completion, I started applying for jobs, intereviewed and was offered the first one, so I stopped looking. So when the question on the online form asked are you looking for work I clicked NO. I had just finished my internship, graduate school, and had been offered a job. But I would still need money over the summer while recovering from surgery to pay my expenses.
I applied for Disability and was denied because “I had withdrawn from the workforce,” by taking an unpaid internship for a year and getting a job that started in August since I work in the K-12 school system which gives you the summer off. Despite clarifying this on the website, with a person, and completing multiple forms. I am lost as to how to get my money, since I paid into SSDI and now can’t get it when I need it.
Awaiting the appeal process.

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?

help!

in ¿Confused?

I received a notice of over payment in the amount of $255.00. Here’s a back story. I had been laid off due to office closure on 10.28.2016. I found a part time job that I started on 10.31.2016. It was with UPS and those hours varied, my lowest check was about 90 dollars, my highest about 348. I did not keep up with certifying and was subsequently disqualified. Which was no biggie because I found a temp job that was full time and I started 01.09.2017. I called them to tell them about this and they said to keep sending in the paperwork to get certified. Anyways, I honestly cant remember if I did. I did receive 110 dollars for the week ending 11.19.2016 during the time I collected. That week I earned 192 which is what I had put on the cert notice. What is so confusing to me is that I never received the payment for 255 dollars. So I dont understand how they can be saying I was overpaid. I have called and spoke to 3 different people about this and no one can give me a answer, just fill out the form and send it in. UGH! Anyone else deal with this?

I applied for a part time position at my last job because but after requesting, a part time position my job was terminated. So I applied for unemployment and this has been the worst night mare of my life. I had the phone interview where the person that interviewed me was extremely rude and hostile. Then I got information in the mail that I was disqualified. Then two weeks pass and there is a letter in the mail with an appeal form that I need to send in explaining the reason why I believe that this was the wrong. Two weeks later I get a letter in the mail saying that I have a hearing coming up with a judge and that’s it. Never received a dime from the EDD nothing and now it is 1 month sense the last letter and I have nothing, no weeks to certify, no time lines, no phone calls nothing. This is this worst thing that I have ever experienced in life 1,000,000%. California is wrong for having systems in place that don’t help workers and are only there because it is a requirement by LAW. I don’t recommenced anyone put their trust in the EDD at all because they are just out to scam you out of benefits that you pay for as a TAX payer and a worker. I don’t know how the EDD works in other states but I can tell you first hand that in CA it is the worst. It is currently the holiday season and I have a mortgage to pay bills that will not stop and I am still dealing with a current injury but I have to find a good job NOW and right now because I have 0% trust in the EDD system. I know that everyone has a different experience and some people really got help from the EDD but I am a VET and served six years in the US army and I still get 0% help nothing ZERO. I hope that maybe the right person will see this and make changes to this system because it is BROKEN as BROKEN gets. I hope that this is helpful to anyone that is frustrated with the EDD.
