Are the payments still bi-weekly (it has been a while) or weekly. I have filled out claim electronically each week.

Thanks,

Just got a call from Service Canada says they transferred my case to an agent to find out why I was dismissed, and told me to wait a few more weeks. 9:50pm logged in to my Service Canada account and got this message

I was transfering my EI benefits from compassionate care to regular benefits, my ROE does not stated anything reasons. I told EI centre that I asked my boss for a day off due to a family member is going to pass away in 6 months and I need a day to make arrangements, my boss said yes. Then the day after I got dismissed and now I'm not eligible for benefit because of misconduct??

Wonder how they conclude that I'm misconduct in the work.

Service Canada might have called your employer. The contact information is written in the ROE that is given to you.

Thank you very much for the reply. If I believe that is not correct how do I appeal and how much chance I can get a turnover?

I got a Claimant Information Session in the mail dated the last week of September. However I already stopped my EI payments since I have found a full time job since Mid September. Do I still need to attend this session? Is this mandatory like jury duty? The date of the information session is during work time and I would rather not miss half a day for this. Are claimant information sessions selected at random?

No, since you are no longer receiving EI payment

I called the direct line of the handler, she said my case was passed to an agent to investigate why I got dismissed, and the message centre's message for misconduct is not correct and just a tag.

However, I logged on my account again and it changes from "not yet made a decision" to the following:

If the View my payment information page does not show the result for the last report you submitted, we may need more information before it can be processed. Call 1-800-531-7555 Monday to Friday during business hours and press "0" to speak to a representative.

A review of the reason why you left your employment has been deferred while you are in receipt of special benefits.

It looks kind of draw back to the last status when I was receiving compassionate benefits?

And when I clicked on "View my current claim" it shows I'm "entitled to 17 weeks of regular benefits" that was not there before?

Does that means I got qualify for the benefit? Thanks.

I think mine is pretty straight forward
Was on sickness benefits from June 20th to September 27th. Had been on regular benefits 12 weeks prior to hospitalization
My wife became my rep as I was in a coma
Went to Service Canada office in Calgary the 27Th with letter from my wife releasing herself as rep Drs certificate for return to work
The Service Canada agent was more interested in talking about what it's like to be in a coma as opposed to my claim
Long story short he said he couldn't change claim there back to regular and sent everything off to ???
What time frame do I have in getting benefits back to regular
Thanks

Last week Monday I had an interview, this Friday I was laid off (temporarily), and this Wednesday I got a job offer from the company that interviewed me. I applied for EI the day I was laid off.

At the time of the interview, I told them I was employed full time, however I'm unemployed as of the job offer date. I'm worried that if I don't update the company on my employment status, that they will be able to find out that I am unemployed via my EI claim, and they may take that as me misleading them. I also don't want to tell them I'm unemployed now, since I would like the 2 week notice period off (unpaid, still in my EI-no-pay-period), to enjoy some vacation (which I haven't been able to take this year). Scuzzy, I know, but I'm burnt out and need some time.

Is it possible for a prospective company to know that I am on EI/applied for EI?
No.
Following up on this one.

I filed for EI, accepted the job, and started exactly 2 weeks after filing. I will not earn a single dollar from EI because of the 2 week "deductible" period.

I now want to let Service Canada know that I'm employed, so that they don't mistakenly pay me anything. When I file my weekly report, however, they ask:

"Provide the 10 digit phone number with area code of each employer for whom you worked during the period of this report.".

Well...I don't want to do that - I don't want them to call my new employer, and have them know I was laid off days after I got the job.

So my questions are:

1. If I put down their number, are they going to call?

2. If I simply fail to file anymore EI reports, will that cancel my claim without causing any issues?

3. Any other way to get around this?

Thanks.
