Am I Eligible For Benefits If Am Fired Or Quit?

The EDD will send a Notice of Claim Filed to your last employer and give your employer the chance to report information about the circumstances of your termination from employment. In addition, the EDD will contact you and your employer to get more information on how the job ended. The Department will then determine whether or not you are eligible, based on California laws and regulations.

A determination is a written notice mailed to the claimant and/or an employer that provides a decision on a claimant's eligibility for UI benefits. The determination is issued by EDD and may be based on the reason the claimant's job ended, or other eligibility issues.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
