In 2019, I worked in AZ as a W2 worker, and moved to CA in June (2019) and worked as a 1099 worker (earned similar amounts to W2 work). I have tried applying several times and have spent days trying to speak to someone at EDD, with no luck. Finally, I received a letter from CA EDD stating that I should apply for an UI claim through Arizona. Their benefit amount is much lower, and the cost of living is significantly higher in CA. I am hesitant to apply in Arizona since this may disqualify my chances of getting the higher benefit amount in CA. What is AZ denies my claim too? What are my options? Has anyone had any success with this type of situation?
