Contacting The California Economic Development Department
Are you unemployed and having trouble with your unemployment claim or benefits? Maybe you are an employer with questions about paying your unemployment tax? You can contact the California Economic Development Department at the EDD Phone Number
to reach them by phone for any number of reasons. For service in English call 1-866-333-4606 and just be patient as the California EDD is an extremely busy unit of government under a great demand. It's not uncommon for callers to any California government department to wait on hold 15, 30 and even 60 minutes sometimes. Sometimes you are better off just using the EDD Website
which provides a wealth of information about California Unemployment Benefits and no waiting. Even for employers the California EDD website is a better bet than siting on hold on the EDD phone number.
