A) I can provide you with some information on how to file an unemployment claim in California.
You can file an unemployment claim online through the California Employment Development Department (EDD) website at https://www.edd.ca.gov/Unemployment/UI_Online.htm. The website has a step-by-step guide to help you file your claim.
If you do not have access to the internet or prefer to file by phone, you can call the EDD customer service line at 1-800-300-5616. Please note that the EDD phone lines can be very busy, so you may need to call several times to get through.
You may also visit a local EDD office in person to file your claim. To find the nearest office to your location, you can visit the EDD website and use the office locator tool at https://www.edd.ca.gov/Office_Locator/.
I hope this information helps. Again please visit your State Unemployment Website for which you may be able to apply for benefits online.
