Do you only service California?
Yes, at the moment we are only servicing California. If you have questions about the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, a federal program, we may be able to answer questions about the PUA.
How much do you charge?
If you have a simple question that we can answer such as, how much will EDD take from my benefits if I work? Or does it disqualify me to quit? We have a considerable size of articles and tools that can help you answer those questions.
If you cannot find your answer you can speak directly to a consultant for a $25 one-on-one consultation by clicking here. Depending on your situation, we have a few different services that we can offer to help resolve your situation.
I desperately want to speak to someone about my unemployment. Can I talk to an Unemployment Guru about my problem?
Yes! Our consultants are very well versed in how unemployment works. We have been through the entire ups and downs of what EDD has put people through since the pandemic had begun. We have been servicing people since March 2020 and understand all the frustrations. Get started by booking your 30 minute consultation here.
How long will it take for me to see my benefits?
This situation depends on what you're facing. If you are appealing, it may take a few months. They have been backed up in appeals since the pandemic. If your issue involves identity verification or extensions, it could take 2-3 weeks or so. Every situation is case by case on how long things may take. If you want to book an appointment to speak to a consultant, you can get started here.

I've been unemployed since March 2020. I've given up because I just don't think I can see the other side. Do you really think I can still qualify for all the way back?
There are many people in your situation and yes, you could potentially qualify. If you were in fact effected by COVID-19 and were unemployed due to the pandemic, more than likely you qualify and that money is yours. Don't give up! We are here to help you get to the other side of it.
How can I trust Unemployment Gurus?
It's simple - check our history. This whole journey started with a Facebook group called Unofficial California Unemployment Help. There is a reason why there are close to 70,000 members as a part of that group. Since March 2020, the creator (and administrators/moderators) have donated and offered their time and advice to help those get through unemployment. All well versed with how unemployment works, advice to others were constantly given simply because they wanted to help. Everyone knows how painful it is to go through unemployment and not only because there was empathy, but many had first hand experience with the difficulties of unemployment. Check the Facebook group and see where this company stemmed from. The creator of the group is also the founder of this company. The purpose is to help people even further by directly assisting them.
