Application Process Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is the process for applying for a job at State Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund)?

    Since State Fund operates within the State civil service system, we follow the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) rules and regulations. As a result, applying for a job with us in the State system is different from applying for a job in the private sector. To fill our positions, we must use a competitive testing process for each job classification (type of job) and location.

    To qualify for acceptance into an examination, you must meet the minimum qualifications as stated on the examination bulletin. Applications must reach State Fund and/or have a postmark no later than the final filing date. Please DO NOT send your completed application via e-mail or as an e-mail attachment. Any submissions received via e-mail will not be accepted.

  2. I want to apply for an examination. What do I do?

    Job applicants must complete and submit the State of California Examination Application which can be obtained from the following sources:

    • If the exam bulletin notes applying via Internet possible, then the State Fund Jobs Online feature can be utilized. You will need to have an e-mail address in order to sign up and receive a User ID and password for the State Fund Jobs Online.
    • By calling AskHR at (800) 499-8668 and requesting an Examination Application be mailed to you.
    • Visiting any Employment Development Department (EDD) office.

    A completed and signed hard-copy exam application should be mailed to:
    State Compensation Insurance Fund
    Human Resources Operations - Testing & Certification
    P.O. Box 659015
    Sacramento, CA 95833

  3. What should I do if, due to a disability, I need reasonable accommodation during the testing process?

    The application form, Question No. 2 asks whether you need reasonable accommodations to take a written test or interview. If you mark “yes” on this item, our Human Resources Testing and Certification staff will contact you concerning any special arrangements that you may need.

  4. What happens after I submit my application?

    Human Resources staff members review your application with all other applications for the same exam. The review process helps to determine which applicants meet the Minimum Qualifications for the exam. After the review, you receive a letter letting you know whether or not you have qualified for the exam. Your letter should arrive within seven to ten days before the written test date noted on the exam bulletin.

  5. When should I follow up if I do not hear from State Fund regarding my application?

    Keep a copy of the application and exam bulletin for your reference, and make a note of the test date on your calendar. Be prepared to contact us if you do not receive our letter within three to five days before the exam.
