1. What would happen if you start getting unemployment and once you get a job, you casually forget to report that for a few months?
2. Many people don’t claim their unemployment benefits, what happens to that money?

    You need to notify your state UI fund immediately and pay back the overage. Since this is reported automatically, you will be caught, and if they have to track you down you will pay back not just the fraudulently claimed UI (and let’s not mince words, this is UI fraud, a felony), but often severe financial and sometimes criminal penalties as well.

    They know the minute you get paid. Companies are required to report their payroll. Just honestly report your employment status.

      That makes sense. Have you ever wondered about the second question?
      So company creates an unemployment “fund” for each employee. Then it stays with EDD. Employee gets laid off. Not claiming the benefits...where does it go?

      Most taxes go into the pockets of politicians and their friends

      The state manages UI funds. Companies pay into it and that’s the end of their obligation, although the more ppl claim from them, the more they pay. Unused funds get rolled into an invested fund which pays out UI in the event of mass unemployment I.e. receipts are less than expenditures.

    They will find out they send notices out to your new/old company, via your good old SSN, so they will catch you, good luck with the IRS. Your other question, I am assuming you live in CA, you are deducted SDI taxes from your paycheck which fund UI, Paid Family Leave, and disability benefits.
