When you are getting ready to verify your identity for the California Employment Development Department (EDD), it is important to carefully read all emails and other communications you have received.
EDD offers more than one way to verify your identity. Be sure to follow the instructions you have received, and verify your identity as you were directed, to avoid confusion and delays.
If you were instructed to log in to your UI Online account and Upload Identity Documents there, do not complete the ID.me verification process. Instead, visit this EDD website and follow the instructions under If you received a message to use UI Online. For help with this process, contact EDD.
