The Tri-Valley Career Center is an affiliate of EDD in that we can help those that are unemployed find employment. However, we do not have EDD staff at our location. Because of this, we are unable to assist with your EDD case or give specific information about your claim.
Below are some EDD resources that you can utilize. At the bottom are EDD locations in the Bay Area and the phone numbers listed are not the Customer Service line, but are the phone numbers for the physical offices.
We do have the following forms at our office if you would rather mail or fax your paperwork over:
Paid Family Leave (PFL) (DE 2501F)
Disability Insurance (DI) (DE 2501)
Unemployment Insurance Application
