Does anyone know if CA EDD requires you to have lived in the state for a certain amount of time to qualify for unemployment benefits?

    CA Unemployment requires you to have worked and made a wage in the state of California. So it's more a matter of you having worked in California and making money here - so yes, you had to have lived here. No set time limit but there is a minimum wage that you have had to hear in order to qualify to file for unemployment.

    Employers report wages to the Department for each employee. The Department uses this information to decide if an individual earned enough wages in a base period to establish a UI claim. A base period is a specific 12-month period. For example, if a claimant files a claim that begins in April, May or June the claim is calculated based on wages paid to the claimant between January 1 and December 31 of the prior year.

    The minimum weekly benefit amount is $40 and the maximum weekly benefit amount is $450.
