EDD Services for Veterans
The EDD provides veterans services that include counseling, labor market information, job referrals, job search workshops, and job development with potential employers.

In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor and the Navy Hospital San Diego, EDD added the REALifelines program to our longstanding veteran’s services. REALifelines focuses on ill and injured veterans returning from military service from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Military personnel who have sustained mental or physical injury so severe they cannot return to active duty receive personalized EDD assistance.

This year, our Transition Assistance Program (TAP) will help more than 27,000 active duty service men and women and their spouses make successful transitions from military life to civilian careers. During the past two years we have expanded the TAP outreach to include service members from California’s National Guard and Army Reserve units.
