California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Good morning Mareena, I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. As a CA employee who leaves their job and is eligible for unemployment benefits, you will file for those benefits in CA. When you relocate, you will need a phone interview to let EDD know that you are relocation. Generally there is a week or two that EDD will not pay your benefits during the move as it is presumed that during the relocation process you are incapable of looking for employment in either CA or your new state. When you first apply you use the address where you are physically located on the day of the application. As soon as you are ready to relocate, let EDD know that you are relocating and your new address---both for physical address and mailing address if they are different. (Be sure to inform the USPS of your new address in advance so that you mail is forwarded to you at your new residence in NY.) Remember that to qualify for unemployment, you must continue to search for full time employment in NY and be willing and able to take a full time position.
If you cannot get through to EDD over the phone, you may always contact them by email and they will respond to your inquiry or request. Here is a link to the email system for requests:
