Request Additional Time
You have the right to request more time to gather documents or obtain the advice of a representative. If you need more time, you must contact us by phone or mail at the address/phone number on page 1 within 10 calendar days from the mail date of this notice. If we do not receive your required documents by the end of the 10-day time frame, or additional time was not requested, then benefits will be denied.
Common Errors Associated with Identity Verification
The date of birth you provided when you filed your claim is different than the one at the SSA and/or the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
The name you provided when you filed your claim is different than the one at the SSA or the DMV. You may have changed your name and not notified the SSA and/or the DMV.
The SSN you provided when you filed your claim is incorrect. You may have forgotten the number, or transposed the number when you filed your unemployment claim or when you provided it to your employer.
We do not update SSA or DMV information. If your date of birth or name used at the SSA or the DMV is incorrect based on your review of your SSA statement, driver license or photo identification card, contact SSA or DMV directly to make change(s). Continue to submit any available documents to us to resolve the identity verification issue within 10 calendar days from the date of this notice. Provide copies of updated documents to us as soon as they are available.
Section 1253(a) of the California Unemployment Insurance Code (CUIC) states all claims for benefits must be filed in accordance with the EDD regulations. Section 1257(a) of the CUIC states that if an individual gives false information to the EDD in order to obtain benefits, the individual may be subject to a penalty. Title 22, California Code of Regulations, section 1326-2 (b)(2)(A) states the EDD may require a claimant to verify the SSN as being the one issued by the SSA if the information available to the EDD indicates that the SSN may belong to another person or is not a valid number.
