Question regarding Fed-Ed and the claim form

Post by Gail on Fri Nov 18, 2011 8:57 pm

I am just starting Fed Ed in California and on the continued claim form, the box is not marked with an "x" indicating the requirement for me to document my job searches on the back of the form.
Does anyone know if this box is supposed to be checked ?
Also my "work search" instructions do not indicate that I must look for full time work each week. It reads that I am to "be available to accept full time work each week"--Maybe that is because I am a seasonal emplyee for a company and I work each year for them during tax season.
As usual I cannot get thru to EDD and am not sure I really want to talk to them anyway, so if anyone can answer this I would really appreciate it.
Thanks

Gail,

You MUST look for work every week, even though the box is not marked. Keep a record of your job searches, and be able to prove that you have in fact been looking for work. All of the job search requirements still apply, even though you DO NOT have to document them on the back of the form.

The box is probably not marked because you are "attached" to the job market, meaning that you have some sort of job, whether it is part-time, seasonal, or temporary. That's my guess.

I wouldn't worry about it, just continue to comply with the requirements. Again, even though you do not have to document your weekly job searchs on the form, you should keep a record of them, just in case you are asked to provide proof at some point down the road.

I think it tells you in the handbook that EDD sends in the packet you get when you start UI that if the box is not checked, you do not need to document job searches on the form.

Thanks for the info-it is a little confusing since I have never gone this long without work before. I do work in a seasonal occupation with tax professionals & have for the past 5 years during tax season which normally runs from end of Jan thru April and sometimes into the first 2 weeks of May. Then everything winds down til the next year.
But in between I do look for other related work and I do keep a record of my job searches on a form on my computer just in case I am asked to provide it-
The box in question was not checked on my regular ui benefits claim form. I was just thinking it probably would be for Fed Ed due to the documentation issue.
Also the instruction letter they sent with the Fed Ed continued claim form was sort of vague-Anyway I mailed in my form so we will see what happens-I do not think I can use web cert since I am now on Fed Ed-The edd website said I had to send the paper form so we will just have to see what happens since I did not document the job searches on the back of the claim form.
Thanks again for helping---

Good luck Gail. Sorry this is happening to you. LRS is correct, keep a record of all searches. From time to time in PA, they require you to present all of your submissions, be it on line or letter, fax, email. I kept a record and was glad I did. Hopefully things will pick up for you and for all of us. In the meantime, please know you have friends here.

@Gail,

You're welcome!

You'll be o.k. with the form. As for Tele-Cert (which seems to be down every other week), unless the EDD tells you to start using that system to certify for your benefits each week, continue to mail the paper claim form they send you. If I remember correctly, you can't use Tele-Cert to certify for benefits for the weeks you have earnings anyway.

You're welcome, MaryKay!

The best way to get through to the CA EDD is via e-mail. No guarantee that you will get an answer from someone who knows what they are talking about, or who can explain things in a manner that makes any sense at all, but you will get a timely response. Even if it is only to refer you to the EDD website. I usually got a response to my e-mails within 1-3 days.

When I first started on UI, I had very few problems getting through by phone, and was fortunate enough to get very knowledgeable representatives who took time to explain things. Now, OMG! Getting a clear answer about anything is like pulling teeth!
