CalJOBS SM System Maintenance

CalJOBSSM will be undergoing system maintenance from Friday, September 29, at 5 p.m. to Monday, October 2, 2017 at 8 a.m. During this time, CalJOBS will be temporarily unavailable to users.

If you recently filed an Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim and received the Notice of Requirement to Register for Work (DE 8405), you are required to register for CalJOBS and add or update your résumé within 21 days of this notice. However, if the deadline falls between September 29 and October 2, 2017, you will be given an additional seven calendar days to complete this requirement. You must also continue to look for work while receiving UI benefits. Failure to comply could result in the delay or denial of your UI benefits.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Unemployment Insurance (UI) program pays benefits to workers who have lost their job and meet the program’s eligibility requirements. If you have become unemployed, you may file a UI claim. You may be eligible for UI benefits if you meet all eligibility requirements. After you have filed a claim, you must continue to certify for benefits and meet eligibility requirements in order for the EDD to pay you benefits.
