Unemployment Claims

STATE OF CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT VIRTUAL CALL CENTER

EDD has a new Virtual Call Center to assist you.

This call center can assist you with UI Online℠, retrieve your EDD Customer Account Number, and other general UI questions.

Representatives at this number will not have access to your claim or payment information.

UI Online is still the fastest way to file a claim.

 

For help with your UI claim or payment information, call 1-800-300-5616.

Monday - Friday (8 A.M. - 12 P.M.)
