Claim form is submitted to the Employment Development Department (EDD).You will receive
a Continued Claim form within 10 days of EDD processing your application for UI beneﬁts. If you

requirements on the Continued Claim form you return to us, a check is issued with another
Continued Claim form. Claim forms are submitted every two weeks.

portion for your records. Fold the form as it was originally folded when you
received it and insert it into the provided envelope, making sure the EDD address
