Hi,

I have been filing my claims online with EDD Web-Cert and I was always asked to fill it out bi-weekly. Today I logged in and I only saw a claim for one week. Does anyone know what that is all about. I know that my claim is still valid because I have been on unemployment for only 6 month.

I am going oversees in a week and just want to know what is going on before I leave.

--best

A

Sorry, but as I am guessing you are hoping to continue claiming from out of the country and not be actively looking for a job, I am disinclined to help smooth out your issue.

If you are actually planning to not claim, to tell EDD the truth or are planning to be willing and able to work while overseas, feel free to clarify

Hi

I don't know how you arrived at that assumption. I am going oversees for 2 weeks to visit my grandmother whom I haven't seen in 11 years because it probably will be the last time I see her. Me going oversees has nothing to do with my question. I am an honest person and I look for work every day. As a matter of fact its my new full time job. Hope that will clarify things a bit.

RG I am not sure what you mean about tier 1.

Part of the qualification for EDD is that you are able and available to accept work. I am guessing that if you got an interview while you were out of the country, and they wanted to schedule it during that time, you would tell them you are not available until the end of your trip.

As you do not meet the qualifications to even apply for UI, well, there is no issue with the claim forms until you return.

Bunny I am not really sure what exactly pissed you off about my question. Maybe you just didnt understand the question. I just wanted a simple question answered thats all. If you dont what to help it is totally fine with me but stop being judgmental and rude. Its pointless.

I understand your question, and in fact I know the answer, I am just not willing to help you with the situation as you described it. And I do not approve of people who are "gaming" the system. This is exactly what you are doing by going out of the country while on UI but checking the "able and available" box. Hopefully they do not send you correspondence in those 2 weeks, or expect you to show up for an in person meeting you know nothing about. Getting an EDD check is saying that you are around to work...they have no reason to think you are out of the country.

Oh, and while the chances of you getting caught are, unfortunately, slim...if you do get caught claiming while out of the country, that is UI fraud.

Tons of people have legitimate need for benefits, but are not eligible, they have run out, etc...yet you are looking for help to cheat the system by using the benefits so you are paid while on a vacation.

Maybe it is not a vacation, but you are still committing fraud by claiming while you are out of the country. That should bother you. I guarantee the EDD people, if they find out, will not care why you were out of the country...only that you continued claiming.

First, you have reached the end of your state benefits, which is why you have only one week left. Your claims are submitted in two-week periods. First claim period you had included a waiting week for which you weren't paid, thus you got paid one week for that two-week period. Your last claim is the remaining week. CA will transition you to EUC Tier 1 and send you a new set of forms after you have claimed this last, lone week.

thebunny is right, you should not be claiming while you are overseas. Call CA and tell them you want to suspend your claim for the two weeks you are overseas visiting an ill grandmother and that you will reopen the claim when you return. There should be no problem with that.

Claiming when not actually searching for work or being available for work is not permitted. Out of country claims, if caught, can cause you a serious problem. Some states have instituted checks for these types of claims. Of course, there are ways to circumvent these traps, but why do it?
