Disability Insurance - Use a Computer to Fill in Forms
Some EDD forms have been prepared to allow customers to fill in the blanks with their personal computers. The forms are in the PDF format and you will need the Acrobat Reader or Acrobat 3.0 or greater to enter data, view, and print the forms.
You may need to download the free Adobe Reader to view and print linked documents.
Note: You are reporting confidential information to EDD on these forms. Do not use e-mail or other unsecured methods of communication to send forms to EDD.
Download the form that you want to use. Load it into the Acrobat Reader. Your cursor will blink in the first field. Just key your data into the field. You can tab to the next field until the form is completed. If you are using the Acrobat Reader, you cannot save your data, so you will need to print a copy for your records and one to mail to EDD. If you have Acrobat 3.0 or greater, you can save the data on the form for future use.
