    Using 2.92 fb(-1) of electron-positron annihilation data collected at root s = 3.773 GeV with the BESIII detector, we obtain the first measurements of the absolute branching fraction B(D+ -> K(L)(0)e(+)nu(e)) = (4.481 +/- 0.027(stat) +/- 0.103(sys))% and the CP asymmetry A(CP)(D+-> KL0e+nu e) = (-0.59 +/- 0.60(stat) +/- 1.48(sys))%. From the D+ -> K(L)(0)e(+)nu(e) differential decay rate distribution, the product of the hadronic form factor and the magnitude of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element, f(+)(K)(0)vertical bar V-cs vertical bar, is determined to be 0.728 +/- 0.006(stat) +/- 0.011(sys). Using vertical bar V-cs vertical bar from the SM constrained fit with the measured f(+)(K)(0)vertical bar V-cs vertical bar, f(+)(K)(0) = 0.748 +/- 0.007(stat) +/- 0.012(sys) is obtained, and utilizing the unquenched Lattice QCD (LQCD) calculation for f(+)(K)(0), vertical bar V-cs vertical bar = 0.975 +/- 0.008(stat) +/- 0.015(sys) +/- 0.025(LQCD).
