waiting period

I was terminated on -14-17. That same day I filed for unemployment. I got paperwork and was told to by someone I talked to on their 800 number to register online and file online. I had my telephone interview on 9-28-17. I have been watching my status online since I had not received anything from them to let me know what is going on. Today my status went from pending for the week of 9-16-17 to excessive earnings since I was working that week. Then it said the week of 9-23-27 “waiting period served”. I am unsure what this means…. Does it mean that I was approved and just have to wait for the waiting period? Keep in mind I haven’t received the ATM card as of right now. I have never gotten employment payments before and don’t understand how they do things… Just hoping for help making since of this….

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.

I was penalized with five weeks of disqualification because I took a temp job and accidentally forgot to report the wage sometime last year. I recieved a letter from EDD stating that over payment was approximately $2000 plus penalty. I’ve gone through five weeks of disqualification and another week of waiting period. Total of six weeks.Then I was expecting to receive benefit on seventh week.(When I contacted EDD person and he said starting seventh week I will receive benefit)but another five more weeks of no benefit continued which applied to over payment.
With my income tax refund confiscated and applied to overpayment and total balance should be close to zero by now.
I’m wondering what the heck is going on?

Disqalification

August 1, 2017

in Pissed!

Long story short, I was disqualified from receiving benefit for five weeks. I contacted EDD person and got a response with I have two more weeks to go including 6th week of waiting period. I do receive letter ans statements from EDD and the status changed to “weekly benefit applied to overpayment” from “benefit applied to disqualification” at some point. I’m sure it changed after six weeks and almost 12 weeks have gone but despite filing bi-weekly claims,I still get letters saying benefit applied towards the overpayment with no check(money) in it? I was thinking and contacted EDD person about and response was, I will receive benefit at 7th week.Anyone know exactly what’s going on? Thanks on advance.

I certify online. I received my first payment after my waiting period. I certified for 7-1 and 7-8 but it still just says pending. I know they say allow ten days, but others I know get the paid status minutes after they certify. They say entering work search history is optional. Does anyone else have a problem with your status stuck in pending, do you think it’s becauseI didn’t enter work search history?

I was approved on 10th of june. I have not recieved a payment for the week of 6-17-17. I’ve been messaged that it was used as a waiting period so their is no benefits. I checked the status of that payment and it says Waiting period served, but wheres the money at? I got paid for 6/24. Why claim 2 weeks for benefits if you only get paid for 1, the system is broken because it is claiming i get paid $205 a week when i get $205 every 2 weeks. It is sunday and i filed for the next 2 weeks of claims and under payment activity it says the 2 weeks which are 7/1 and 7/8 i claimed are now paid for yet the week 6-11-17 is still waiting period servered. It is sunday and my bank account still has no money. When am i going to get paid for any of these weeks? I promised to payback borrowed money by money and im a little scared this money wont come in til like thursday. can anybody please help me out. I’ve sent an email with my regards and i cant call because i cant afford a phone anymore.
