I had a phone interview on the 28th of December 2017. I never got a letter approving or denning my claim just another award letter on the 5 th. My online claims still say pending. How can I find out if I was approved? I can’t get through no matter how hard I try.

How long does it take….

I had a phone interview yesterday that seemed to go fairly well. The issue is that I was already receiving benefits while working part time but they stopped and I had the subsequent interview….I would like to know how long does it take to restart my benefits

So, I have not been paid any benefits yet. I was let go on 11/1, had my phone interview on 11/20 and I received my approval letter the first week of December. Due to an issue on their end I could not certify for benefits until yesterday, 12/15. Today I logged back in and I see another phone interview for 12/22, which seems like its probably a mistake. Is this common or should I just call them again because it seems like it will just further delay me getting any benefits. Thanks!

A little help please!

Recently I filed for IU because i was fired. I had my phone interview and started recieve benefits after certifying. In the process of looking for work which the EDD requires. I went to an old temp agency because I was still currently in there system even though i stopped working for them because i started the job i was fired from. So they sent me on assignment. When i got there i asked the supervisor how long did he think he would need our help. He replied a few days. Me knowing this was not a permanent solution to my problem. I called off because i had interviews for permenant positions elsewhere instead of finishing the rest of the 2 or 3 day assignment that again was going to leave me unemployed. So the edd sent me a letter stating I quit the temp agency and i need another interview to determine eligibility. Im confused because they reason i filed unemployment had nothing to do with this company in the first place. I was fired and that was the reason i was recieving benefits. Ive been calling the temp agency for over 2 months and they havent sent me on a assignment but also stating i quit so they wont pay out my benefits. Im basically stuck not working and not receiving benefits. Was i suppose to be surviving off the temp agency even though they have rarely ever gave me 40hrs a week? Why are they stopping my benefits over a assignment that was only suppose to last a few days anyway. Was i better off just not going to back to the agency and looking for work as the edd requires? Was i suppose to accept the temp work and not try to go to my interviews for permanent employment? It just sucks how they do you smh

I checked off the homeless box on my unemployment form. I am now living with a friend, but they have contacted me for a phone interview that I sense is due to my homeless status with edd. If they would like me to demonstrate I can still look for unemployment while homeless how do I do that?
Should I just change my residential address to my companion even though I have no proof of residence(Bills / lease ect)?

My last employer will not respond to the EDD. I had my phone interview yesterday. I was laid off for “lack of work.” My friend still works there and told me our boss has not responded to the EDD for the 2 of us he laid off, just completely informing their paperwork and phone calls. What does this mean for me? Will my claim get approved or do I have to wait until he responds?

Pending payment

I had a PJSA meeting I was scheduled for but later was told I was exempt from because my Resume was successfully in Caljobs so I did not attend. This then triggered a phone interview.. in which my benefits had already been “pending” for a week. The phone interview was a week after that.. finally when the phone interview comes up (lasted less than 5 minutes) I was told everything was fine and I should receive my next payment. I go on UI online everything still said “pending” two weeks later I certified for the next weeks and now all 4 payments are “pending” I’ve called EDD twice.. on hold forever just for someone to pick up and tell me a decision still has not been made.. I have gone a month without benefits. EDD is a scam.
