The EDD manages the Unemployment Insurance (UI) and State Disability Insurance (SDI) programs for the State of California.
SDI includes Disability Insurance (DI), Paid Family Leave (PFL), and the Nonindustrial Disability Insurance (NDI) programs. NDI includes DI and Family Care Leave (FCL).
Claimants and employers must understand their roles and responsibilities in making sure that information is reported accurately and the correct benefits are paid. Committing fraud has serious outcomes. Learn more on Fraud and Penalties: What You Need to Know or review our Recent Fraud Convictions.
Due to current events, we are experiencing a large increase in claims filed and are extending our staff resources to keep up with the demand. For faster service, use UI Online to file your claim, certify for benefits, and get payment information. You can also ask questions about your claim using UI Online by selecting Contact Us at the top of your homepage.
