Finding a Job
A: What should I do when I find a job?
B: There are a few considerations. Is this a part-time or full-time job?
A: Does it make a difference?
B: Basically, you really don't need to do much of anything. On the Continued Claim Form, you will note that you now have a new job and also note what you are earning.
A: If I get work for a few weeks, will I be terminated from EDD?
B: You will not mess up your job benefits by taking work. You can always come back and notify EDD that you are once again in need of assistance.
A: Should I tell EDD that I have found a job?
B: Is this a temporary job or something more permanent?
A: What difference does it make?
B: When you get your next Continued Claim Form, you should just write down where you worked and note that you no longer need unemployment.
A: If I take a short job and then get laid off, will I be starting over trying to get unemployment?
B: Just because you work for a week doesn't mean that you will be losing your benefits.
A: How do I know when to tell EDD that have I started a new job?
B: Work is work, whether it's a part-time or temporary job or a full-time gig.
A: So I guess I have to report that I've found a little bit of work.
B: All you need to do is fill in the blanks correctly on the Continued Claim Form, and the EDD Office will take care of the rest.
A: What about if I find a job that I know will only last for a couple of weeks? Can I take it?
B: It is to your advantage to work as much as you can.
