Those of you in CA have probably heard how tied up the UI phone lines are due to case load and such, and they indeed are. I have a quick question not answered on the EDD site and figured I'd ask here and see if anybody knows off-hand.
I applied for UI about six weeks ago, was initially granted (I got and sent in a continued-claims form), but then it got tied up with the need for a phone interview that only recently took place. If I'm granted UI would I get payments retroactive from the original date (minus the first-week waiting period of course)? The reason I ask is because I'm almost certainly going back to work beginning next month, and if I won't get past payments it won't be worth pursuing the claim anymore.
