California State Disability Insurance (SDI)
SDI is an insurance program. Insurance programs work by having a large group of people pay a monthly fee, called a premium, to receive a benefit when certain events happen. If you have fire insurance, for example, you pay a monthly premium that goes into a fund along with the premiums of everyone else on the policy. If your house burns down, the insurance company will take money from that fund and give you a check. The system works because most of the people paying premiums don’t ever have a fire, but they want to be protected in case they do.
This article focuses on SDI for people with disabilities and Paid Family Leave (PFL) for people taking care of a person with a disability. It does not focus on pregnancy-based disability leave. For more information about Pregnancy Disability Leave, contact the EDD.
