You can apply for Unemployment Insurance Benefits with the EDD (Employment Development Department) if you are currently unemployed or employed part-time. In order to receive Unemployment Benefits, you must be (1) ready to accept work, (2) physically able to work, (3)actively seeking work, and (4) unemployed due to no fault of your own.
The amount of benefits you can receive depends on your earnings during a specific 12 month period. Weekly benefit amounts range from a minimum of $40.00 to a maximum of $450.00. Your claim will remain effective for one year and you can receive from 12-26 weeks of Unemployment Benefits. If you file a claim for Unemployment, you will need to provide the EDD with information regarding your most recent employer and the reason(s) for which you are no longer working.
Fired from your job?
If you were discharged or terminated from your job, you still may be eligible to receive Unemployment Benefits if specific criteria are met. Approximately two weeks after you file a claim with the EDD, you will be contacted for a telephone interview to determine whether you qualify for Unemployment Benefits.
Quit your job?
If you quit your job you can still receive Unemployment as long as good cause existed for leaving your most recent employer. However, you must have made reasonable attempts to preserve your employment relationship prior to leaving. The burden will be on you to show good cause for voluntarily quitting.
If the EDD did not approve your claim for Unemployment, you have 20 days to file an appeal with the CUIAB. It will be helpful to have an attorney represent you at your hearing in order to help convey the facts of your case in a clear, concise, and organized manner. In some cases, documents will need to be introduced into evidence at your hearing along with any relevant witness testimony.
