How to cancel your UI Benefits account if you don't qualify for Unemployment Benefits and have never received any funds from it? - CA?

Just as the title says because I currently work a part-time job and I filed for unemployment as soon as COVID-19 started making its way towards my city. 

I used to work 30-35 hrs/week but then my hours got reduced to 15 - 20hrs/week, so that's why I filed for unemployment. Since I work part-time I am assuming that is why I don't qualify and haven't received any funding.

    Have you been filing your weekly claim?

    Working part-time could make you eligible for unemployment.  It depends on how much you were earning  before and how much you are earning now.

      Your employer doesn't determine if you are eligible or not.  The EDD determines that.  The exception is if they received a payroll protection loan, you need to be paid your full wages for 8 weeks, thus, you wouldn't be eligible for unemployment.
