Information for DACA Recipients:

DACA recipients in California are eligible for unemployment.

According to EDD’s website: To collect Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits, you must show that you were in satisfactory immigration status and authorized to work in the United States when earning the wages you used to establish your claim. You must also give proof that you are currently in satisfactory immigration status, and are authorized to work each week that you claim benefits.
Note: The EDD verifies immigration status and work authorization through the Department of Homeland Security 

Therefore, DACA status individuals do qualify for UI benefits. I would also recommend they check out or reach out to CHIRLA if they have another questions on DACA and UI.

CHIRLA is a good resource to tap into, as they are providing good information for our undocumented/immigrant community given COVID-19. Learn more about CHIRLA here.
