EDD Claims: What You Should Know

  • The easiest way to apply for a claim with the Employment Development Department is through filing online.
  • If you have questions regarding your claim, take a look through their Frequently Asked Questions page for Unemployment Insurance or Disability Insurance/Paid Family Leave to see if they have an answer for your inquiry. Don’t see it listed? See Ask EDD for assistance.
  • If you prefer to receive assistance by a live representative, you can call EDD or find the EDD Field Office closest to you.
    • For the appropriate number for your type of claim and preferred language, please see here. Assistance from representatives is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
    • If you have trouble reaching a live representative over the phone, please remember that persistence is key when calling EDD. We strongly recommend calling first thing in the morning to have the greatest chance at connecting with a representative.

If you have attempted all of the tips above and have not gotten a response after two weeks of contacting EDD, please fill out the form below.
