Where Is My Payment?
If you have not received your payment or any response from EDD within 10 days of submitting your Continued Claim certification, Contact Unemployment Insurance online or call one of the toll-free Phone Numbers to speak to a representative.
You can access your payment information online or by phone without waiting to speak to a representative. These options are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit payment information is updated daily, and reflects the claim activity which occurred on the previous business day.
