My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: CA
I'm a SAG actor who is also getting her feet wet on the production side and in between acting jobs I take whatever job comes my way or collect UI benefits. I recently took a job as a Co-Producer to a film. This position had no pay and we traveled out of the country to shoot the trailer. According to the EDD manual, if you take a job for no pay, you have to report your paid travel expenses as income. For this project, we raised money thru IndieGoGo. And 100% of that money raised went towards our travel expenses. We were only 3 people traveling. So I reported 1/3 of the money raised thru IndieGoGo. Should that be adequate? Also, I incurred my own expenses on this job with the knowledge that once the project is funded, I would be reimbursed. I did not include those expenses on my claim forms. Did I do the right thing?
Thanks so much!
