CTB question

I took an edd approved training course on extension which recently ended and I got paid for my last week of school but I did not get paid for the week after. I got the notice saying my work search requirements have changed since school ended and to continue to receive benefits i need to look for work each week. Shortly after that i got scheduled for an edd phone interview and when the rep called he just asked when i finished school and hung up. I check my UI Online and for the week after school ended it went from pending to disqualified. My claim balance is still showing and it also says to certify for weeks still. Just wondering is it over or will I still be able to receive benefits while looking for a job with my new skill from school.

So I (unintentionally) misreported the wages from a recent temporary position. I made about $500 in two weeks of February, but reported it all in a single claim week after I’d already gotten paid. EDD docked one week’s payment, and I thought that was that.

Since the numbers/dates didn’t match up exactly, they recently flagged my account and told me I had a phone interview scheduled next week.

Now, I know I messed up because I didn’t read the fine print. But if anyone has had a similar experience… what exactly can I say during this interview to ensure that I continue getting the rest of my UI claim?

Will they accept the fact that this was an honest mistake and perhaps dock another week or two as penalty, or charge me for fraud and stop payments altogether?

Thanks~

So i got fired on the 28th,got an award letter then received a letter for phone interview on the 15th. Haven’t heard anything back yet but i got paid for the second week. A couple days ago it notified me to reopen my claim. I didn’t want to because i didn’t want to mess anything up. Well i reopened my claim yesterday, now is telling me to reopen my claim again. I have no idea what’s going on, i can only assume my claim was approved because i got paid for the week that wasn’t my waiting period. Any advice?

I was unemployed for about 4 months from November-February due to lack of work at my regular job and filed a claim with EDD. I took a small part-time job for 3-4 weeks and stupidly didn’t report them with EDD because I misunderstood the question if I had worked (I took it as a question of if I had worked for the company I was claiming benefits for) It’s a little over a month later and I received a letter of determination for failing to update my resume (There was nothing to update from my previous claim, I had filed the previous year for 2 months for the same job). My benefits for the first two weeks of February were suspended and the last weeks I haven’t certified for because I started back at work on February 21st and do not need benefits. The phone interview is tomorrow and was looking for any tips and how I should bring up that I was overpaid if they would just not pay the few weeks they had suspended due to my resume not being updated.

It’s been over 2.5 weeks with no money received nor communication explaining why from EDD. Then, today on Monday, I received a letter informing me a phone interview was scheduled last Friday! If we don’t find the sense of humor in this insanity, we’ll all go nuts.

I had just recently ended a contract with my agency and reopened my claim. I received money my first week but not the second. Then, I received a call informing me that I have a phone interview in 2 days on 1/26 between 1pm – 3pm because of a question with my eligibility. Never received a letter.

Today, this morning at 9am I missed a call from an unknown number 909-269-8220. Did not think much of it. I then awaited for my phone appointment between 1 – 3pm, and no call came. I researched the number that had called in the morning, and it appears to be from the EDD. Does this count as a missed phone interview?? Has this happened to anyone? I find it sketchy for them to do this if it is intentional.

The weird thing is, I looked in my account and they had paid me for the second week. Did they just move on and continued with my claim? Weird.

Purge on Claim

I filed a claim on 4/10/16. I was eligible. They sent a letter to sign up for UI Online to do my weekly certs online. I served my waiting period and received one week of benefits of 220.00 then found a job. I reported i started working. Unfortunately i had to leave my job so I quit. I knew i wouldn’t be eligible for UC so i didn’t reopen my claim. Although my job reported it to edd and i received a letter stating i was inelgible due to quitting and not checking to see if i could work something with my employer. It stated i need to make over 1100.00 to qualify to receive benefits on my continued claim form. I found a job in November 2016. I was told it would be long term. With no warning on Dec 19th 2016 I was told they had to let me go. She stated it wasn’t working out which is strange because i know i was doing well. She told me it was at will. I asked whats that and she told me laid off. The paper i received said Terminated which i didn’t notice till i got home because of i didn’t want to be where i wasn’t wanted. I shook their hands and told them thank you for the opportunity.
i made more than the amount to reopen my claim so i did. I had a phone interview on 1/5/17. I saw on the UI Online that i was able to certify for benefits. I did and it stated disqualification. I received no letter nothing.i emailed edd to find out why i was disqualified. 7 days later i received a response on 1/20/2017. She said I’m elgible but i need to send my wages. On 1/23/2017 i called edd and the lady gave me a fax and said they would purge it. There’s been no changes they received my next weekly certs and it states disqualified. I called 1/25/2017 And still they said there’s nothing that says i sent my wages. I sent it Monday and tuesday. My question is how long does it take for them to purge my claim because i do qualify for sure. I’m clueless ive never been fired and i never did a continued claim form. Thank you in advance.
