The California Employment Development Department (EDD) provides a variety of services to individuals and businesses affected by disasters in California.

If you are unemployed due to a disaster or emergency, you may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI), Disability Insurance, or Paid Family Leave benefits. When authorized by the President, Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) may also be available for workers and self-employed who do not qualify for regular UI benefits.
