What Is A Partial Claim?

Partial claims are for employees whose employers want to retain them when there is a lack of work. EDD provides employers with a Notice of Reduced Earnings, DE 2063 or a Notice of Reduced Earnings (Fisherperson), DE 2063F for employees in the fishing industry. The employer completes the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to certify that the employee is expected to return to work, and gives the form to their employees, who use the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to file a UI claim.

Employees who use the DE 2063 or DE 2063F to file for UI benefits are not required to look for new jobs because their employer has certified that there will be a job for them shortly. These employees are considered "partially unemployed."
