I’ve been on unemployment for over a year now, not by choice, I feel like I am a prisoner of EDD! I mail my claim for on Friday, they issue checks usually on Monday and mail them Tuesday and I receive it always on Thursday. This week I still haven’t received my check, which was issued on Monday, the 15th. Today is August 21 and still no check!! We called the Post Office thinking maybe it was lost, they told us they always receive a lot of unemployment checks on Thursday, however, this past Thursday they didn’t receive any! Go figure, EDD must have held the checks and not mailed them. If it was just my check I would have thought maybe it was lost, but the entire postal area? My check has been late maybe 3 or 4 times over the period of 1-1/2 years, never this late! Usually if it is late, it’s only late by one day! I wonder how the employees of EDD would feel if they didn’t get paid when they are supposed to. It’s hard enough trying to live on unemployment, but when they decide to hold the checks it creates late fees, and sometimes shut-off! Is anyone else experiencing these problems?
