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.
I applied for UEI on October 3rd got my first week pay on Sunday the the 16th then got a notice that I was to have a phone interview on the 26th told I could certify on the 30th now my pay is pending and I got another notice that I am going to have another phone interview on Nov 9th. Why is this happening ??
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?
Hi all. I’ve searched through the site for answers but I’m still pretty lost.
When a status says “paid”, does that mean you passed the phone interview? I have not received a card, letter, or phone call telling me I have. When I called the number on their site, it tells me no payments have been issued & “No Results Found” on their site. I also do not have the edd debit card. Can someone clarify whats going on here?
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?
