How do I verify my work to get the pandemic-related benefits?

During the pandemic, EDD granted benefits for employees and self-employed individuals who lost work due to the pandemic.  EDD sent out notices asking those people to verify their pre-pandemic employment to make sure that EDD only paid benefits to eligible people.  You must respond to EDD's request or you can be charged with an overpayment. 


Please see our handy factsheet detailing the documents that can verify employment.
