    You don't have to ask. If it's a 1099, there is no unemployment reporting at all, because it is not wages for UI tax purposes.

    If this is a settlement and not back wages, there IS no employer reporting to EDD.

    What Scott is trying to tell you is you didn't EARN it - you didn't earn it while unemployed. You earned 0 - you did no work - therefore, there is nothing to report.

    My concern is that i know the firm will report the income and EDD will find out. Edd will assume that i earned the $$$ recently if i don't tell them otherwise. They will not know that it was earned in 2007. I think the form asks for the dates the money was earned tho. If i don't report it and they find out (which they will) there will surely investigate.

    Yes, that is correct. I believe you do NOT need to report that income, but to be on the safe side I would recommend contacting EDD with that simple question. It would be unnecessary for them to pull up your current claim during the conversation. It takes about 2o minutes to get through. See the instructions below to speed things up.
    1-800-300-5616
    Immediately dial 1, 2, then 2, and then 7 and wait. You may need to call 10-30 times back to back before talking to someone live and the verbiage you'll be looking for is an automated voice giving you an estimated time to wait for someone live.
    I've done this successfully multiple times this past weeks regarding my first extension for benefits. They will answer questions without pulling up any of your information.
    Hope this helps.
    This would be a waste of time and you may happen to talk to an EDD employee who would give you incorrect information which would give you cause for concern. They will provide answers over the phone, but the answers are not binding on them in anyway.

    No. You earned nothing. You received something. It is "did you do work" or "did you earn money". A settlement coming in is neither. You also do not have to report interest you have received on savings, even though those savings were generated because you previously worked.

    Question 6 on your Continued Claim form asks "Did you work or earn any money, WHETHER YOU WERE PAID OR NOT?"

    A settlement from years ago, or from last year, for that matter, is neither. It is not reportable to EDD.

    I am unemployed in Calif and collecting unemployment. When reporting the $$$ on my edd weekly form, do i need to catagorize the type income? Salary? Commission? Overtime? Any links you can provide me would be great....i have read everything i can get my hands on but don't see anything that applies to my situation.
