California Unemployment Website

Here is the link to the CA Website:

http://www.edd.ca.gov/

The official name for it is the EDD - Employment Development Department website.

This is the only official California unemployment site, and the only one that you should submit your application to. UnemploymentHandbook.com has lots of great information, so be sure to click around to get lots of great tips on getting a job, and figuring out CA unemployment, but we are not affiliated with the state of California, and UnemploymentHandbook.com is not the official California unemployment website.

Five years ago I quit my job.
I know now that quitting is the worst; and maybe what I should have done was maybe use my mental health benefits for some treatments first to help me cope or get a leave of absence. But I was not coping at and I quit.
Since I then nothing worked out for me as I had hoped. It has been over five years now trying to survive and trying to find work. I've been looking for work but no one is hiring me. Even if I originally quit, all this time later I still can't get help? Please, I need some help, please.

I'm 67 years old and still working. I'm drawing Social Security. If I get laid off of my present job, can I claim Social Security ?

Thanks,

Neil
