California State Disability Insurance (SDI) is funded through employee payroll deductions and provides short-term wage-loss benefits to eligible employees who are unable to work due to a non-work related illness or injury, or a medically disabling condition from pregnancy or childbirth. An eligible employee can begin to collect SDI benefits after seven days of medical absence. To calculate your benefit, refer to the Disability Insurance Weekly Benefit Chart published by the California Employment Development Department.

When a TSRI employee applies for SDI, he/she should notify Benefits Administration as soon as possible to ensure payroll is coordinated appropriately. For more information on SDI, contact the California EDD at 1-800-480-3287 or Benefits Administration at 4-8487.
