Giving up on EDD because they are difficult to reach
If you plan to call by phone, consider calling one of the non-English phone numbers -- the people who answer them are knowledgeable about SDI and speak English in addition to the other language. You may need to try various different methods to contact the EDD, because the main English phone line is often busy. It can be frustrating trying to contact EDD because they are very busy and hard to get a hold of, but it is very important.
Note: DB101 cannot answer questions about your SDI claim. If you have questions, please contact EDD.
