Unemployment Benefits MUST READ!!! MY STATE REPRESENTATIVE ROCK!!

God is Awesome! I have been waiting on my UI/Pandemic benefits since January 2021. I submitted every piece of paperwork they asked me for. At the end of February I received a letter saying I was approved. So I waited on a check.....nothing! I called almost every day and got the same answer yes we have all your information yes you are approved ....but a supervisor is looking over your case. I waited two weeks called again same thing a supervisor will contact me after I requested for them to call. Days passed no call. I saw a post here on Jobcase a woman expressed that we should contact our State representative/legislators concerning unanswered unemployment. I DID JUST THAT! I emailed my state representative March 31. A secretary from their office emailed me back the same day saying they received my email and asked me for my case #. I emailed them back immediately! The next day April 1, I received another email saying they have reached out to SCDEW on my behalf and I should hear from them and to continue to check my portal. I didn’t get a call so yesterday I called and got answers to every question I have been asking for month. A supervisor stepped in on the call and I can say Today is April 6 and I woke up a healthy bank account! I received my back pay from SCDEW!!

Mine got stopped for a fraud investigation in Dec 2020, and I've turned in and done everything they have asked of me and i still can't reach anyone by phone anymore,but yet i still have not been reinstated as of yet. Now my fiance who applied in Dec and got approved still has not gotten his money at all with no explanation as to why he has not received his money. So anyone with a secret weapon to get anything from the CA edd please let me know. We both apply for jobs everyday and are not getting anywhere. CA really has been debated by covid 19 and the fraud that has come with it.

I am waiting for my check since 10/18/2017. I was told that my documents were missing then I had to start all over. Every year they said the same thing over every year until the year of than pandemic. I was being pushed back for others that are in the pandemic. Being very patient awaiting for my turn to get my benefits. Guess what happened? Yes, you are right, they lost my documents. So I had to start all the way from the beginning. With all the documents they required I presented them to them. One representative told me to give up. Another told to me to claim disability they seem to get that type of claim finalized quicker. I am very disappointed with this gov't system. If it wasn't for our president Joe Biden and the approval of the stimulus check just to keep my head above water. Neverlyn, getting in contact with our state legislator is a far stretch way to go. I will definitely give that advice a chance. My unemployment benefits are way overdue. I am hoping we can get one or two more stimulus check which is keeping me afloat. Oh by the way it's 4 1/2 years this October 2021 will 5 yrs. Wish me luck!

I just recently got let go may 8 . unemployment still hasn't giving me anything . they required me to go on id.me and verify myself and just my luck id.me suspended my account . they said it because I already had an account . my ACCOUNT WAS attached to the job I lost . once they let go I can't access that email . been on this for a month now my bills aren't paid. at this point I give up . this is completely not fair .
