Though we have decades of collective experience helping clients with Unemployment Insurance issues, and at times know the answers to your questions, we are not experts and unlike many similar Career Centers, we are not an office of the State Employment Development Department (EDD). We do, however, have access to local phone numbers for you to use instead of the general 800 number. If you have questions about filling out forms, paperwork, or other questions specific to your claim, we suggest you call or e-mail the EDD offices directly.
