I made a mistake on my certification / application

Updated: 3 days ago

Facebook thread here


If you want to make changes to your certification or application, it's not easy. Here are three different ways.


1. Contact EDD

Unfortunately, in order to make direct changes to your claim, the BEST and FASTEST way is to contact EDD. Phone tips here


2. Use AskEDD

Link to AskEDD here. Rumor has it they don't check the online messages -- but I don't know that for sure. Again, calling is not fun but it would get you the best results

3. Use "Contact Us" through online portal

Try not to make the mistake again! Mistakes with claim applications are hard to fix -- especially if it's your social, birthdate, etc. You could potentially have to verify your identity which is a very very long process.
