Language Access for Unemployment Insurance

The Employment Development Department is required by law to provide meaningful language access to Limited English Proficient people seeking services. When you call or visit EDD, you have a right to interpretation in your preferred language, in real time. EDD’s main UI phone number 1-800-300-5616 has been upgraded to include a language selection menu in multiple languages. Callers can press 9 to request an interpreter in any other preferred language not listed in the menu.
