Answers to your FAQs regarding the Lost Wages Program


Did CA get approved for five weeks? When will they distribute?

  • Yes. They are paying out the first three weeks. The additional two will be distributed after Phase 1 and Phase 2 are done.

  • Update 9/24: EDD released a news release on 9/24 that the following week they will begin issuing the fourth and fifth weeks of LWA.

  • Update 10/21: All six weeks should be paid out by now

What about the sixth week?

  • Sixth week has been paid out

What weeks does LWA cover?

  • 7/25 - 8/1 --- LWA week 1

  • 8/2 - 8/8 --- LWA week 2

  • 8/9 - 8/15 --- LWA week 3

  • 8/16 - 8/22 --- LWA week 4

  • 8/23 - 8/29 --- LWA week 5

  • 8/30 - 9/5 --- LWA week 6



How will payments be issued for LWA?

  • EDD said people will get it in lump sum, but people are experience deposits of $300, $600 and $900. So it really varies. The only thing is that it will be distributed into Phase 1 and Phase 2 for the first three weeks of LWA

  • Those receiving checks will get separate checks if eligible
