CA Unemployment: Has anyone else stopped receiving payments for no reason? [View all]

What is going on with CA EDD?

I certified for benefits today for the past two weeks, and once again the EDD site says no benefits were paid for those two weeks, even though there is almost $6,000 available to me for the weekly benefits. I got the same message when I certified two weeks ago. Note: it doesn't say benefits were denied, it says they weren't paid.

I am now looking at a full month where I have received no unemployment benefits. WTF?

In the meanwhile, I received a letter on Friday from EDD stating that my weekly benefit was being increased from $214 to $450. That $450 is based on my UI benefit from 2018-19. That $450 amount first showed up on the EDD website three weeks ago. But here's the thing: when I certified for benefits this morning, the site said my weekly benefit was back down to $214. Yesterday, it reflected the letter and said my benefit was $450, as it has said on the site for the past month. When I just now checked the site to see if the benefits were approved, the benefit amount was back to $450.

I know there is something going on with we independent contractors and the calculation of benefits, which includes an increase. But I do not understand why I am not receiving benefits. I'm guessing some computer glitch.

I plan to call early tomorrow am (good luck getting thru during their generous 4-hour window to call, from 8am-noon), but in the meanwhile it might be comforting to know I'm not the only one in this position, which sucks. I still have rent and bills to pay. SHEESH!
