California State Disability Insurance (SDI) is a partial wage-replacement insurance plan for California workers. The SDI program is state-mandated and funded through employee payroll deductions. SDI provides affordable, short-term benefits to eligible workers. Workers covered by SDI are covered by two benefits: Disability Insurance (DI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL). To learn more about SDI, visit About the Program.

New Online Services

The Employment Development Department (EDD) implemented a new electronic claim filing system for SDI, called SDI Online. You can now process DI or PFL claims conveniently and securely online.
