Hi everyone,

As stated in another thread, my husband was fired from his job on May 10th. We submitted unemployment paperwork on May 11th.

He began receiving payments from May 19th, and have had no problems receiving those payments timely.

He had a phone interview on May 23rd. We were told that if the employer appealed, they would have 30 days to do so.

We have yet to receive any "Approval" or "Denial" letter regarding his interview. We have only received the "Benefit Award Letter", Claim forms, and the CALJobs registration information.

At what point can we be safe to assume that he's been approved? Since it has been 30 days since the interview, should we wait another couple of weeks before considering that the money is ours?

We've been deferring all EDD payments to a savings account in case it turns out that he was denied.

Thanks very much for any help/experience anyone can provide.

If there was a problem with the claim at this time, CA would have notified you by now. CA doesn't send approval letters other than the initial "Notice of UI Award," unless a decision was reversed on appeal.

The employer could still file a late appeal. It would be up to CA if they would hear it.

Know that approvals are not forever. Employer could also appeal this claim a year from now - when the issue of his firing will be revisited at benefit year end if he is still claiming federal benefits.

Employers are given a lot of latitude on appeals, so there is no guarantee. Since the 30 days is past, for now you will only have to repay if employer files a late appeal, is granted a hearing, and wins.
