I started this process in October 2020. Could not continue without ID.me, didn't have proper docs. Due to COVID - items took longer to get than usual. Birth Certificate from Alameda county took almost 3 months. As luck would have it, completed ID.me verification on 12/28/20. Put a request into backdate claim to date I opened my EDD online acct - 10/26 or so. Request Declined
Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we are unable to process your request to backdate your claim to 10/26/20. This date falls out of the backdating parameters. If you have any other questions, please contact a Customer Service Representative at 1-800-300-5616. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, 8am – 12pm. Thank you for contacting the EDD.
Question- Is this futile to try and get backdated to the correct day, since I finally got verified after Cares I expired on 12/26? Have you seen any successes since Cares II of a backdate into 2020? I have all documentation, proof of income, etc and am currently receiving the weekly since 12/28/20. Just thought I was entitled to the back pay from October.
