Faxed Applicants

Updated: Feb 10, 2021

Facebook thread here

Below are instructions directly from EDD website, but the consensus of many members of the Facebook group is that some faxed apps go through and some don't, regardless it is recommended to call in to follow up on the faxed app and/or make a claim over the phone. The number shared by the FB group users is 408-436-5603 and press 0 when prompted to make a selection.

If you worked in multiple states you will need to fax your application, although it is known that some members have been able to file over the phone and backdate it to the faxed date as well.

If you want to stick to faxing but don't have a fax machine - iFax as an application has been recommended.

File your UI claim by accessing the paper Unemployment Insurance Application. For faster and secure processing, fax the completed application to the number listed on the form. If you mail your application, use the address on the form and allow additional time for processing. You can contact your local America’s Job Center of California for help with mailing or faxing a paper UI application. The fastest way to apply is still through UI Online.
