Senator Ling Ling Chang's office is offering assistance with EDD and DMV realted issues. In fact, they have helped resolve 2,700+ cases, a majority of them related to the DMV and EDD.
If you need assistance with the DMV on issues such as vehicle registration, rescheduling, and verifying extensions, please email their office.
For the EDD, they are also able to help with issues such as backdating claims, identity verification, status updates, switching claims from UI to PUA, and flagging possible fraudulent claims for small businesses owners.
EDD Update: California submitted an application this week to participate in the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program. If approved, it would provide a supplemental payment of $300 per week for a limited period of time for claimants who are currently eligible to receive at least $100 per week in benefits, and who have provided a self-certification that they are unemployed or partially unemployed due to disruptions caused by COVID-19.
In the meantime, the prior $600 stimulus payment is still available to claimants with any eligible weeks of benefits between March 29 and July 25, even if those payments are processed at a later date. Otherwise, weekly benefit payments without the stimulus can continue to be made on all regular UI, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) or FED-ED extensions, or PUA claims in which individuals meet bi-weekly eligibility requirements.
