• Short-term disability insurance is a component of the California State Disability Insurance program. It provides partial wage replacement benefits to eligible California workers who are unable to work due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy.
  • About 18.7 million California workers are covered by the short-term disability program. Short-term disability insurance contributions are paid by California workers through employee payroll deductions.
  • A disability is an illness or injury, either physical or mental, which prevents you from performing your regular and customary work.
  • Behavioral health symptoms stemming from depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, or panic attacks may also qualify you for short-term disability in California.
