this is my first experience on unemployment, so please forgive me if my question is common. I have been on unemployment for going on five months now, and I was offered a two week , temporary contract position. I would be making quite a bit more than my benefit amount, working 40hrs a week. I would be going on the temp agencies payroll for the two weeks.
my question is if I accept the position, will my benefits be cancelled or affected due to the 2 wk employment? I received the offer today, and the job starts Friday. I tried to reach a live rep at edd to no avail. I was told that once edd sees that I'm working 40hrs, they ll close my benefits.

please help, I sincerely appreciate any. guidance you can provide.

Call CA the first week you are no longer working. You can reopen the claim when your contract is finished. CA will contact that employer to verify the contract has ended. If the employer verifies the contract has ended - in other words, doesn't lie lie to CA and tell them you quit (some do - your benefits resume without a problem. If you are going through an agency for this work, there could be complications on you continuing to keep in touch with that agency, not refusing suitable work, etc. There are unintended consequences for working while collecting benefits. Hopefully, you won't encounter them.
