The Employment Development Department of California

California's Employment Development Department assists the state's economy with job productivity, availability and the tools necessary for workers to file for unemployment. The "EDD", as many call the department of unemployment, deals with claims on a day-to-day basis. Many of the claims that go through the office of unemployment are done by phone.

Unlike other states, the California unemployment department has a variety of languages it offers its services in. 1-866-333-4606 is the number English speakers should dial carefully if wishing to contact the unemployment office. It has the ability to check unemployment information and provide access to a one-stop career center.

If one prefers to contact the agency for unemployment in Spanish, please dial 1-866-333-4606. Like the English service, this line also has the ability to check unemployment information and provide a one-stop career center. Dial carefully so as to reach the right hotline.

1-800-300-5616 is the California unemployment agency number for customer service in English. Use this to file claims, ask some general questions and check up on claims. You will talk to a real-life customer service representative as opposed to a machine at the end of many other numbers.

Those who speak Spanish can dial the 1-800-326-8937 phone number for unemployment for customer service. It is used, much like its English counterpart, to file and oversee claims made. It is not a machine-based service.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing customers filing for unemployment can dial 1-800-815-9387 by teletypewriter (TTY). This number does not communicate through voice calls. This number for unemployment puts one in contact directly with a California EED customer service representative.

Unemployment numbers vary depending on what language one speaks and what one wishes to do. Luckily, in the state of California, office unemployment filing, unemployment insurance and EED information are all found through the same unemployment number. Dial the correct California phone number to unemployment in order to receive accurate services.
