FILING FOR CALIFORNIA UNEMPLOYMENT

FILING FOR CALIFORNIA UNEMPLOYMENT:
January 27, 2021 – First time filing since the CoronaVirus pandemic began.

edddd

large

Q: Why didn’t you file earlier?
A. Because the system was broken.
And the system remains broken. Fraud in the BILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
They made payments to inmates. People can’t get assistance or help!
They sent payments to people who used other people’s identities. (FRAUD)
People with a valid claim were cancelled and couldn’t get customer service.
This is the only thing keeping people fed and from becoming homeless!
Delays, Backlog of Applications,
THEY HAD TO DO MANUAL VERIFICATION!
AND NOW THEY ARE OUTSOURCING IDENTITY CHECK TO ID.me

Q: Why are you filing now?
A. Because there is no end to this pandemic….
We saw the news reports that the system had been improved.
And there’s a new President in The White House now.
Governor Gavin Newsom has totally f*cked California.
And he just lifted the “stay-at-home” order. But CASES ARE SPIKING!
WE WANT TO SEE HOW F*CKED UP THE EDD SYSTEM REALLY IS!

Go to EDD site.
Go to ID.me – already had a verified profile.
submitted primary ID – video face scan FAILED! return to ID.me site
submit primary ID & 2 secondary IDs online
ONLINE HOLD 47 MINUTES – rejected after 5 minutes.Screen Shot 2021-01-27 at 07.39.17
The green progress wheel keeps spinning so you know you’re waiting.
REJECTED! (Red message online, text, and an email)
Covered the account number on my bank statement (secondary ID)
and the wait box becomes a RED ERROR MESSAGE
and they also sent a text and email (went to the JUNK MAILBOX)
to notify me they need the last 4 numbers of the account to be visible.
re-submitted the secondary ID photo
ONLINE HOLD 51 MINUTES…. 
Screen Shot 2021-01-27 at 07.54.52
The green progress wheel keeps spinning so you know you’re waiting.
“Searching for an available ID.me Trusted Referee…”
WAITING. 28minutestogo….WAITING. 12minutestogo….
WAITING. 5minutestogo…. (your actual time may vary)
This wait time is “California Time”, minutes are being added….
the countdown time is not accurate, 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi….
And this isn’t even the EDD Application site, this is just for identification.

Screen Shot 2021-01-27 at 09.22.58

So, we had a video meeting with a guy on the interweb.
Hopefully he really was with ID.me and not some guy stealing our identification.
He verified our ID. He looked at the documents.
It was easy once because we had everything ready. And now it’s 9:30am.
We are waiting on an email from ID.me.

Screen Shot 2021-01-27 at 09.30.26

We got the email. And went to the EDD site.
We filled out and submitted the online application.
Now we wait for approval. By mail, should take 10 days.

Then we went to CalJobs website and registered there.
And we created a new resume using their platform.
Still have to read what else is required by EDD for that.
And there’s a bunch of other stuff on the EDD site to read too.

“The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part”
– Tom Petty and The HeartBreakers

NOTE: The California EDD Employment Development Department is a f*cking joke.
That’s the UNEMPLOYMENT AGENCY for the STATE OF CALIFORNIA!
The agency has always been a ridiculous bureaucracy of mismanagement and errors.
Anyone who has ever had to deal with them know this.
The CoronaVirus Pandemic has exposed the EDD for what it is…
ERRORS, FRAUD, MISMANAGEMENT, SCANDAL, and NOW A TOTAL FAILURE!

We will add our UPDATES here:

UPDATED February 1, 2021: BOOM!
We received our EDD NOTICE today in the mail! That was fast.
Notice of Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Award.
Thank you State of California for the letter. Ka-Ching!
We look forward to receiving a pandemic payment soon….
(maybe we’ll buy some GameStop stock and piss off FoxNews) 

600 dollars

UPDATED February 3, 2021: 
There were THREE LETTERS from the EDD. None had a check inside.
There was one with a continuing claim form inside to be mailed later this week.
There was one offering the option of a mailed check rather than a Debit Card.
(We opted for the check, because there were a lot of problems with the cards issued by Bank of America, and we want to deposit the money and not have it on a card to spend)
And there was one with our account number and info about the online access site.
So, that’s Four Letters in two days, and we know the State of California is paying for them.
(and we also have to provide postage on the return opt-in letter)

UPDATED February 8, 2021:
We CERTIFIED our EDD Claim online for our first two weeks last night (Sunday AM).
We haven’t mailed the check request form yet, and we don’t have a Debit Card, so we are not sure what to do, because if they send a Card and we send the check request form, you just know there will be some kind of problem or delay.
eddconf

UPDATED February 10, 2021:
We received a text message and an email yesterday from EDD.
They notified us that the first two weeks of benefits was paid into our account.
We don’t have a Debit Card yet, so we can’t access the account….
Hopefully they will send us a card today.  (and NO CARD TODAY)

UPDATED February 12, 2021:
We tried to call the EDDUnemployment Customer Servicetoday.
Unemployment Insurance Customer Service 800-300-5616
“Get help with filing a claim by phone, general UI questions, and technical help with online registration, password resets, and EDD Account Numbers.”
8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Pacific time), seven days a week, except state holidays
When you call, you get the voicemail system. You have to listen to the options, espanol?,
and then make your selection, and then more options, make a selection….
We have too many calls message, and then you’re disconnected. Good work EDD.
1st Attempt> 3:48 call then disconnected. “please try again later”….
2nd Attempt> 4:03 call then disconnected. “please try again later”….
The Automated Assistance number: 866-333-4606 (24-hours)
refers you back and also to another number that we didn’t call.
Instead we went online and tried to find out info about the Debit Card.
Bank of America is suppose to mail a new card one day after the claim is certified.
The website says to wait 10 DAYS before submitting a “lost” payment message….
So NO CARD TODAY. We’ll see if it comes tomorrow,  If not we’ll take action on Monday.
THERE IS ALSO A DIRECT DEPOSIT OPTION – But you have to have the card first.
And you need a PIN number too…. so that’s probably another piece of mail….
So, we tried today, and we’ll follow up on Monday maybe.

UPDATED February 15, 2021:
Here’s the story about Saturday.
The Bank of America Debit Card came on Saturday afternoon.
We went online to activate the card (because the claim was certified last week and the account was funded with our first two week payment) on Saturday afternoon and…. TOTAL FAIL!
EDDfail1
We tried three times and NO DICE. We called the BofA phone number….
voicemail, talk to a service rep, transfer to Fraud Dept. There’s a fraud hold.
Talk to Fraud Dept. – on hold – “cannot tell you why” 
THEY HAVE TO TRANSFER ME TO THE EDD. Okay.
EDD Voicemail message. Options. EDD Voicemail message. Options.
Problem with your payment option… Call volume is high, “try again later”
Disconnected. 
Try again. Disconnected.
Call BofA again: voicemail, talk to a service rep, transfer to Fraud Dept.
We know there’s a fraud hold. Talk to Fraud Dept. – on hold – NO HELP!
THEY HAVE TO TRANSFER ME TO THE EDD. We know what’s going to happen.
EDD Voicemail message. Options. EDD Voicemail message. Options.
Problem with your payment option…
“The EDD is open 8am to 8pm, this office is CLOSED.”
President’s Day right. State offices are closed on Monday,
so the phones are closed on the Saturday before because why?
STATE OF CALIFORNIA TOTAL FAIL.
So, we’ll try tomorrow to get the money we were suppose to get last week.
YOU CANNOT REQUEST DIRECT DEPOSIT
UNTIL THE BofA CARD IS ACTIVATED!
This is obviously so BofA can run the money through their bank, take their cut, and then take their cut again (it’s called “the float” and the interest on “the float” goes in their pockets)….
SO TAXPAYERS IN NEED HAVE TO WAIT
FOR BANK OF AMERICA TO MAKE MONEY
SO THEY CAN GET THEIR MONEY!
WE WERE FURIOUS! LIVID! ANGRY! MAD!
SPITTING PROFANITIES! YELLING AT THE PHONE!
And we called BofA again. Then we were done ’til Tuesday. (tomorrow)
Sometime during the exchange we went online and messaged them too:

UPDATED February 16, 2021: TUESDAY 8:00am
NOTE: Here is our Tuesday morning frustration. We wrote it as it was happening, and re-edited and added more details, improving the story and documenting the California EDD bureaucracy.
edddd
(LIVE)BLOGGING THE TUESDAY MORNING EDD (UNEMPLOYMENT) CALL
FOUR HOURS ON THE CELL PHONE with California EDD and BofA today.
FOUR HOURS! Yeah, we’re a little pissed off.

If you haven’t been following the story, we finally filed an Unemployment Claim.
We had to verify our identification through ID.me (an EDD contractor)
Our ID was verified. We were appoved for Unemployment.
Our claim was submitted and certified.
And then we were notified the account was funded.
We waited for the EDD Debit Card and it came on Saturday.
We tried to activate it on Saturday afternoon: 
http://www.bankofamerica.com/EDDcard
“YOUR SECURITY INFORMATION IS INCORRECT” – can’t activate our Card
We called BofA, and the transferred us around, and then back to EDD….
And EDD was closed on Saturday, Sunday, and also Monday (President’s Day).
SO WE WERE CALLING EDD AT TWO MINUTES TO 8:00am on Tuesday!
EDD Customer Service Representative: 800-300-5616

8:20am: We hung up and called the start number again.

MUSAC – interrupted by EDD voice messages

9:27am: Start Over. Listen to the entire voice message again.
9:30am: Please Try again later message. Disconnected. They hung up on us again.
9:31am Called again. Listened to the entire voice message again.

9:35am: Trying BofA customer service now. 866-692-9374
“The card number you entered is closed.” Transferred to Carol.
Explained it, Carol transferred me to Brandi, Explained it.
Brandi logs the info and transfers me to her supervisor ON HOLD
“All associates are currently assisting other customers,
please continue to hold for the next available associate.”
9:47am: “Thank you for your patience, we are currently experiencing high call volumes,
please continue to hold and you call will be answered in the order it was received.”
9:50am: JAY “Risk Manager” at BofA – THIS GUY SHOULD BE FIRED.
And the person that hired Jay for  customer service should be fired too.
He read me a statement – BofA can’t do anything, you have to talk to EDD. 
Needs EDD to release the Hold. We explained that we had talked to EDD.
He can’t help us. Can’t contact EDD. Can’t make outbound calls.
Won’t transfer us to a supervisor when we asked. Verified that “He’s the guy”
We lost it on him. FUCK YOU BofA! FUCK YOU Risk Manager!
9:58am: AND THEN WE HUNG UP ON HIM.
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
EDD Customer Service Representative: 800-300-5616 AGAIN.

Estimated WAIT TIME Greater than 30 minutes
10:08am: ON HOLD – MUSAC
“Please continue to hold, your call will be answered in the order it was received”

advising you to use their automated lines and online site. (repeated voice messages)
10:20am: STILL ON HOLD….
10:30am: STILL ON HOLD….
“Please continue to hold, your call will be answered in the order it was received”
THE MUSAC IS JUST HORRIBLE AND REPETITIVE NOW.
IT WAS TERRIBLE TO BEGIN WITH BUT THIS IS TORTURE AND MUSIC HELL
10:40am: STILL ON HOLD….
“Please continue to hold, your call will be answered in the order it was received”
MUSAC endless…. STILL ON HOLD….
10:49am: Connect to Jeannie – told her we were here before and got disconnected.
She said “it says you got disconnected” SHE CAN HELP US!
She will send BofA a notice to release the funds!
(apparently this happens to everyone using ID.me – see our notes on “The Float”)
WE ARE CRYING. Tears are rolling down our cheeks.
(no really we are so relieve that we don’t have to listen to that MUSAC anymore)….
so she sent the message and said to Wait 30 minutes and then call BofA.
We asked “Do you promise?” and she said yes and made a note on the account!
It’s so easy when you find a person that knows what they’re doing and wants to help while doing their job. You don’t find that too often at any California State agency.
10:54am.  TWO HOURS AND FIFTY-FIVE MINUTES LATER! And we still not done.

11:47am: BofA customer service again now. 866-692-9374

11:58am: “one moment” ON HOLD
“actually it can take 7-14 days to process because the EDD is so backed up….”
“Is there someone above you I can talk to?”
“yes, but they’ll just tell you the same thing”
“Well, let them tell me the same thing.’
12:05pm: ON HOLD
12:13pm We HUNG UP.

Screen Shot 2021-02-16 at 10.13.17

UPDATED February 21, 2021:  Sunday. STILL WAITING! 
We certified today with the EDD for the last two weeks as required.
We are still waiting for BofA to Activate the EDD Debit Card we received 8 days ago!
The “Fraud Hold” was released by the EDD last week after 6+ hours on the phone. 
WE CALLED AND EMAILED AGAIN YESTERDAY TOO. STILL WAITING! 
Screen Shot 2021-02-21 at 12.44.59

11:55am Called BofA. Voicemail message. “Card is Closed”

12:11pm Security Procedure (at each point), they need Card Number, name, security questions, and then they text you a 6 digit code and have you read it back. (this is not new)
12:14pm ON HOLD again.
12:16pm He told us we need to verify our address with the EDD.
We told him we had verified with EDD last week.
He looked at the file and then realized we knew he was telling us B*LLSHIT.
12:20pm Transferred us to the EDD Voicemail Number…. EDD Voicemail Message.
“More calls than we can answer, unable to assist you at this time, call again later.”
HANG UP ON US AGAIN. DISCONNECTED at 12:24pm. Another half hour wasted.
We sent BofA another email, cc’d with our local Congressman’s email again.

 

UPDATED FEBRUARY 26, 2021: We haven’t heard anything from EDD or BofA or the Assemblyman’s Field Rep yet, but we aren’t going to press anything until Monday…
Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 16.37.33
STILL NO RESPONSE FROM THE CA EDD (Now 13 Days after our first message)
TO ANY OF OUR SEVEN MESSAGES REQUESTING HELP!!!!!

 

UPDATE FROM MARCH 5, 2021: CA EDD and BofA – THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN!
California Unemployment TOTAL FAIL and Bank of America’s CRIMINAL FRAUD!
Screen Shot 2021-02-13 at 11.46.46

The story so far: We finally filed for unemployment. We verified with ID.me again.
Our claim was approved and our account was funded with our first two weeks, and then our second two weeks of payments. And we received our EDD Debit Card.
WE COULD NOT ACTIVATE THE EDD DEBIT CARD on the BofA website.
We spent hours on the phone and on hold going around and around with EDD and BofA.
We were told by EDD that the hold on the account was released and BofA was notified.
We were told because of backlog, it could take 10-14 days for BofA to be notified.
WE MAILED A REQUEST FOR CHECKS TO BE MAILED BY EDD – Must Remove BofA!
Screen Shot 2021-03-02 at 19.38.11
We sent many messages and emails to EDD and BofA.
We filed online complaints with the FTC and FBI.
We called our Congressman, State Senator, and State Assemblyman too.
We contacted someone in the Assemblyman’s office who said they would help us!
We received a misspelled and confusing message from EDD that changed our check request back to EDD DEBIT CARD….
An EDD DEBIT CARD THAT WE CANNOT ACTIVATE!
and we cannot contact anyone at EDD or BofA to help us…..
Tony for BofA Regulatory Complaints called from an unidentified 877 toll number…
and left a message. We have called back twice and left messages on his voicemail.
We are still waiting for him to call again.
AND WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE EDD DEBIT CARD TO BE ACTIVATED!Screen Shot 2021-02-21 at 12.44.59
So, today we called the Assemblyman’s office again
(after messaging EDD again and leaving another message for Tony at BofA),
They are working remotely in the Assemblyman’s office, so we left a message with the office staffer, and then our contact called us back pretty quick, and told us she didn’t previously have our phone number or email….????) We told her our story of EDD FAILURE, sent her an email with a screenshot of the EDD message, and our wonderful contact said she would get back to us by the end of the day today! She has contacts at EDD and someone at BofA who can maybe do something.

We received an email from our contact in reply to the email and screenshot we sent her.

UPDATED MARCH 10, 2021:
AND WE UNLOADED AGAIN ON THE EDD AND BofA this morning.
We filed our 3rd claim online with EDD on Sunday,
so now we are SIX WEEKS WITHOUT PAYMENT.
Our claim was paid again. We have not heard back from BofA.
WE LEFT A FOURTH MESSAGE FOR TONY AT BofA.
WE MESSAGED EDD AGAIN TODAY: NOW 13 MESSAGES!
edddddd

Then we emailed a BofA Corporate officer.
AND THEN WE FOUND A TWITTER @:
Screen Shot 2021-03-10 at 09.44.46

UPDATE MARCH 21, 2021: 
UNEMPLOYMENT! – Remember our CA EDD Unemployment Claim?
We wrote about a lot over the last month and a half….. trying to get paid.
Actually, trying to get BofA to fork over the money they were holding!
We wrote the Blog Post “CV! Part 136 – VICTORY!” last week. 

large
WE FINALLY GOT BANK OF AMERICA TO RELEASE THE HOLD
ON OUR CA EDD DEBIT CARD! WE GOT OUR FUCKIN’ MONEY!

We followed up with the Assemblyman’s office.
They contacted the EDD and removed any holds or flags on account.
The EDD was supposed to have contacted BofA to let them know.
BofA still hadn’t activated the account.
A service rep for BofA called and left a message with a number a week before.
WE LEFT FOUR MESSAGES ON HIS VOICEMAIL WITHOUT A RESPONSE.

We finally emailed a BofA Corporate Executive.
And we went on Twitter and tweeted to another Corporate Executive.
We got a call from the BofA service rep after his normal “working” hours that day!
WE TOLD HIM OUR TALE OF TRYING TO GET THE EDD DEBIT CARD ACTIVATED.
Calling EDD and BofA, hours on hold, transferred to someone else, on hold for hours, disconnected, and sent to a dead end line that never answers more than once, and referred back and forth without anyone at BofA able to contact anyone at EDD, and then back to hours on hold with EDD. No one at EDD is able to contact BofA….WTF?
The BofA service rep confirmed the account was cleared and the card would be activated!
And IT WAS FINALLY ABLE TO BE ACTIVATED.
SO WE ACTIVATED OUR EDD DEBIT CARD. FUCK YOU BANK OF AMERICA!
AND THE NEXT MORNING WE DID A MANUAL CASH WITHDRAWAL AT OUR BANK
FROM OUR MONEY ON OUR EDD DEBIT CARD AND DEPOSITED IN OUR ACCOUNT.
NOTE: We left a small nominal amount on the card in case we need to put more money on it.
We have requested checks directly and we received our first check from the EDD.
We removed BofA from our business.
THEY ARE COMMITTING CRIMINAL FRAUD.

California EDD Debit Card Sample:
BANK OF AMERICA IS COMMITTING CRIMINAL FRAUD!edd-debit-sample

“Float is money in the banking system that is counted twice,
for a brief time, because of delays in processing checks.”

the amount of time it takes for money to move from one account to another
duplicate money in banking – a deposit that has not yet cleared
the time between a deposit and the day the funds become available for use
the time between the writing of a check and the time the check clears
Money that has been credited to the bank, but not the customer!

“Funds tied up in checks or other non-cash transfers
that have been issued,
but not processed or collected,”

And of course there is a class-action lawsuit filed against Bank of America.
FAILURE TO RESPOND IN A TIMELY WAY TO THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS!

dates

UPDATED MAY 10, 2021:
Did you see the report on the CALL BOTS? TOTAL FAIL!
Now you need to pay someone to call the EDD for you, using a computer program,
if you want to get through and speak to the EDD – if not you won’t get through.
CALL VOLUME EXCEEDS THE EDD’s CAPABILITIES TO RESPOND!
And if you do get through, the service people aren’t trained to help you!
EDD HASN’T IMPROVED ANYTHING! THEY ARE LYING!
BofA is committing criminal fraud and holding people’s money!
Instead of wasting time trying to call EDD,
CALL YOUR CONGRESS PEOPLE, THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE
AND YOUR CALIFORNIA STATE REPS! PRESSURE THEM TO ACT!

AND WE GOT SOME LETTERS FROM THE EDD TODAY!
Guess what happened today? HAHAHAHAHA.
We got the mail, and we got some mail from the CA EDD.
We couldn’t get through to EDD on the telephone, so we emailed our contact at our Assemblyman’s office who helped us with our Claim problem (see the above Blog Post and Updates about Filing for California Unemployment, the Employment Development Department FAILS, and the criminal activity by Bank of America and their Executives).
JUST TOTAL FRAUD.
But the Assemblyman’s staffer has a direct contact at EDD and helped us again!
We needed to Backdate our Claim, because we were originally late to file….
and today we received the claim forms for the weeks that needed claiming!
In fact DUPLICATE CLAIM FORMS! And they were weekly, instead of bi-weekly,
so we got FOURTEEN envelopes from EDD today,
with 14 claim forms, 14 cover letters, and 14 return envelopes.
184210541_4741347979225064_1858232460840437283_n
AND THEN WE CERTIFIED ONLINE!!!!! Paperless.
Because the payments get mailed faster. And we’ll recycle the paper.
MORE WASTE. MORE BAD MANAGEMENT! AND JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE.
WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS ADDED ELECTRONICALLY
TO THE BofA BANK CARD BECAUSE OF BofA AND OTHER FRAUD!


“Is this a… what day is this?”

UPDATED Saturday, July 17, 2021:

As of July 11, if you are receiving Unemployment Assistance,
there is a “Work Search” requirement to look for employment.

Seeking employment as required by the State of California, and the CA EDD.
