Hello, I received a 4/16/12 Noticed of Determination from

Resolved Question:

I received a 4/16/12 Noticed of Determination from the CA-EDD stating I was not eligible for unemployment benefits for period ending 3/3/12 because I submitted my claim late (the EDD received it 4/4/12). In an appeal letter I wrote that I had begun a temporary job (3/9/12 - 4/13/12) and was focused on my employment. I then recieved a 4/26/12 Notice of Right to Receive Benefits Pending Appeal letter which stated the EDD would mail me claim forms (no specific dates listed). In addition, the letter read that I could choose whether to receive benefits pending my appeal. The letter also stated that if my appeal was declined I may have to repay any benefits received. My question is: Why would I have to repay benefits from claim periods I was eligible for? (i.e. period ending 4/28/12)

Thank you.

Hello and welcome,

Whether you are eligible for benefits is in dispute since you are appealing it, so a final determination has not been made in your case.

Until there is such a determination, with the right to appeal being exhausted or waived, there would typically be a chance that you will ultimately be denied benefits.
