I was disqualified for the first 2 weeks due to EDD not being able to identify me. I was sent a form with instructions on what information and copies to submit in order for them to identify me. How do I find out if I have been approved? Do I have to re-certify to receive benefits or wait for EDD to contact me?
If you were actually disqualified you should have received a notice that was appealable. Look carefully at what you got and respond. You can file a letter or get an appeal form from EDD.
If, on the other hand, your name and identifying information that you submitted to them was erroneous, you will need to reapply. Whatever notice you received stating they could not identify you should have information about how to correct any errors. If this seems too hard or you can't find the answer, call your local bar association and ask for a consultation with an attorney who can look at the communications you received and help you understand your next step. You should act quickly since there is a time limit on appeals.
