So on Thursday, August 31, my wife and I got a call about fostering two children. I had been laid off from my job and on unemployment for a few weeks prior.

We got the kids Thursday night and I applied to get on Paid Family Leave the next week. Since there was a seven day waiting period, I assumed I was able to fill out my claim for the week and got scheduled for a phone interview.

During the interview I was told I had knowingly submitted a false statement and should have checked “yes” under “Yes” or “No” and said there was a reason I was unable to work.

She said I would have to pay back for the day and would probably get a 5 week penalty.

I feel like this was an honest mistake, but the worker was so accusatory. Like I was trying to scam the government for the 50 bucks or whatever I was paid for the day. Is the only thing I can do now to appeal this is to go before the judge? What a hassle.


They take you so far down the hole for a representative that most will hang up before the end. Stay on! “Your wait time is 7 to 10 minutes” then “we’ve reached the maximum number of callers “good-bye” auto hang up for two weeks now. My money!!! I was forced to work from my hospital bed for some kind of income! Honest is me. I reported it. I don’t get any benefits. SDI screwed up! I rather be honest. But truth is if I was looking for a welfare check. I’d get everyone’s attention. Thank you Obama for your weak self. Democrats have killed this country! I’m a working person last to be considered! Make America Great Again by firing deadbeats and hiring those who can do the job. Hire more to get our calls for help. I am so pissed. Worse I can’t help myself without a human! Then which one of those can help or is trained to help??System sucks and doesn’t need to so easy to fix. Gov. Moonbeam in CA also has auto hang up. Who pays these people you and I!

For two weeks I call the SDI and I get to where the recordings says “sorry….” then they hang up on me. I just want to ask a question.
If I get approved for SSDI while I’m collecting SDI, will my SDI be reduced due to the SSDI? The SSDI was reduced due to the SDI.

Ok, so I thought you get SDI payments weekly ? How do you get them ? Bi-weekly. Or weekly ? Also , do you get your weekly benefit amount or do you get the daily amount ? Ok very confused and can’t figure it out because I got a partial 3 day payment that isn’t equal to my daily amounts ? Anyone on SDI for pregnancy know my answer ???

I’ve been receiving autopay on my SDI through EDD and I did not receive it this past Friday, is anyone else’s late? I thought it was cause of the holiday but I’ve been on it for months and never had it delayed. Thank you

My doctor tried to logon to her account to complete my application. She couldn’t remember her password and asked for a reset. It then wants to email her a reset password.

The problem is her account was setup with an email she no longer has access to. She has called the doctor line every day for 4 weeks and they tell her it has been sent to the IT department. The 49 day deadline for filing is in a few days. The deadline for the doctor to respond is also in a few days?

Any ideas?

in Pissed!

Have not received 1099G to complete 2016 tax return. Called and after having to enter my SSN and date of birth (which is absurd to have to enter in today’s world especially when considering the amount of stolen identity cases occur each day), auto message stated no record found so have to call back during regular business hours (which means hours of waiting on hold). Searched more online and found I can get info online at UI site. Supposedly, have to use my SDI login. Tried numerous times, does not work. Keeps stating incorrect password entered, though no problem accessing SDI account online. Seems the 2 related sites would be linked. If received SDI, why is there not a link on that site to the 1099G info?
