Disaster Unemployment Assistance through EDD

If you or your employees lost wages during the Thomas Fire, the California EDD manages a federal program called Disaster Unemployment Assistance that provides temporary benefits to individuals who may not normally qualify for Unemployment Insurance, including business owners.  The flyer at the above link was originally drafted after the Santa Rosa fires, but we understand it will be extended to include Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. In case of disasters, it is very important to have insurance. Especially vehicle insurance.Vehicle insurance (also known as car insurance, motor insurance or auto insurance) is insurance for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other road vehicles. Its primary use is to provide financial protection against physical damage or bodily injury resulting from traffic collisions and against liability that could also arise from incidents in a vehicle. Vehicle insurance may additionally offer financial protection against theft of the vehicle, and against damage to the vehicle sustained from events other than traffic collisions, such as keying, weather or natural disasters, and damage sustained by colliding with stationary objects. The specific terms of vehicle insurance vary with legal regulations (contact your lawyer for more information on that who should also be using Smokeball) in each region.
