school

I was approved for CTB for 18 months when my school ends. Online TE states it is one time for 6 months. Which is correct? Or is after the extended 6 months when I get a new claim award based on new earnings?

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?

in Where's my Money!?

So far here’s my experience with CA EDD. I recently applied for unemployment on 7/10/17. After the one week waiting period I began receiving my money the first week on 7/31. I certified online, and the first full 2 week check came in the following week as they were late with mailing the paperwork. I posted it on Sunday, and by Sunday night the money was in my B of A account. However 2 weeks later when I certified for my continued claim, I noticed EDD had my money pending. I thought it was because I needed to attend the REA appointment which happened to fall on the same week. However, after the appointment I noticed the money was still pending. I finally called Thursday morning the 800-300-5616 number and I was able to get someone in 5 minutes and lo and behold the customer service rep told me that a mail they sent to my previous employer came back as undeliverable which is why they held my payment. What?!!! I was pissed, because they did not send me a letter or email telling me about this. Anyway I gave them the address of my employer, they had something way different from a company with a similar name, and the lady said my money will be paid out in 24-48 hours. Wow! Luckily I called or I would’ve still been waiting for my money. With bills to pay and school supplies to purchase I was getting worried. So if you see your money saying pending after a day or two do not hesitate to call, these suckers will hold your money for any little thing. Call Thursday or Friday mornings around 8a.m. to get a hold of someone.

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?

I missed my phone interview and had called to reschedule or verify the information they needed. I’m on ‘recess’ for school district and they wanted to verify the time of recess etc. But because my cell service sucks I didn’t get the call until after the interview time. I called them back but didn’t receive a call yet. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Anyhow, on the site it showed the weekly benefit amount and the claim amount. Now when I had done this once before a couple years ago. I don’t really like doing this because of the hassle so I avoid it unless I absolutely need too. Even though everyone says I should just do it. – Off point, when I had done it those years ago to now I made less then. But my claim amount this time is less than what I had gotten in the past.

Soo before the amount had showed, I check earlier today and there was an amount pending when I checked again today it shows 0.00 for both claim and weekly. It says my certification is still pending.

Why’d it go from the amount to 0.00? Are they recalculating? (hopefully because it did seem odd I made more in the past on UI instead of more this time, since I had made more money this year.)

It says on the site they are doing maintenance too on friday. Could that be why as well? It doesn’t say I was denied or anything so I was just wondering if anyone else had this happen to them.. Hopefully I can get through to someone and find out what the deal is. UGH this is stressful because I have a car payment due. Oi.
