When Your Benefit Year Ends

If it's been more than one year since you applied for unemployment, you may need to file a new claim.

The EDD provides a variety of support services to people who have lost their jobs, had their hours reduced, or had their businesses affected due to the impacts of COVID-19 in California. For faster and more convenient access to those services, we encourage the use of our online options.

For the latest Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim data available, visit the Newsroom.

If you already filed for UI, refer to our step-by-step instructions for what to expect through the course of your claim.
