If my employer appeals the EDD decision am I eligible to receive the benefits that were unpaid

I filed for unemployment benefits. the EDD awarded them to me, then my ex-employer filed an apeal and benefits were unavailable until a hearing was had and a decision made. The judge found in my favor and awarded my benefits. I was unable to collect benefits for three months because my previous employer appealed the decision. Can I collect the unpaid amount for those three months now that I have been awarded benefits?

Yes, you are entitled now to a retroactive payment for all the weeks of benefits that you haven't received due to the previous denial. If the department doesn't automatically issues the checks to you or if you haven't filled out the claims forms after being denied, contact them to clear this administrative issue and you will be paid in full for any time missed.
