Hi everyone,

I just lost my job here in California. I had a few questions about unemployment here:

Are there any offices that are less busy than others? I live in Culver City and would travel up to 30 miles. How long is the expected wait? (I can't apply online because I have worked in Boston this year as well. And I can never get through on the phone).

Is my company suppose to provide me with some type of paperwork?

Finally, are there resources out there to help people who's company challenges their right to collect? (Free or low cost)

Thanks for your help!

I tried to post this a few days ago so sorry if this is a duplicate post.

My daughter applied online and didn't have to go to an office to do anything.

Read the instructions carefully. It's not hard to apply, but it gets tricky if you make any money at all with temp work or piece work.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I can't apply online because I worked for another state in the past 18 months. I have emailed them but gotten no response. Again, if anyone knows of an office where I can actually apply (not just a work resource center) that would be great.

There are no unemployment offices anymore in CA. It's best to apply online, and you'll be asked during the process if you worked in another state. You can also apply by downloading the forms, filling them out and sending them in, or applying by phone.

If you have questions, send an email to EDD, and you should have an answer within a few days.

This is correct. There are no longer any brick and mortar UE offices that you can walk into.

It is either over the phone or online.

Sometimes there may be an representative at one of those One Stop Centers who will answer questions. Check with your local One Stop and ask them.

I don't understand why you can't apply online just because you worked out of the state of CA in addition to CA.

You put down the jobs, dates, etc. Online is really the best way.
