The School Employee Fund (SEF) is a joint, pooled-risk fund administered by EDD. SEF receives contributions based on a percentage of total wages paid by California community college districts.  The rate is determined by law and is intended to provide one full year of Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit payments. 

An Unemployment Insurance Technical Subcommittee, who serve under the direction of the School Employer Advisory Committee (SEAC) meet quarterly to discuss the Claims Management System, new legislation, and court decisions affecting the SEF and the UI program. This group plan the annual School Employer Unemployment Insurance Seminar and meet with representatives of the EDD Director to recommend improvements to the SEF.
