Disability Insurance and Paid Family Leave Benefits
The California State Disability Insurance (SDI) program provides short-term Disability Insurance (DI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) wage replacement benefits to eligible workers who need time off work. You may be eligible for DI if you are unable to work due to non-work-related illness or injury, pregnancy, or childbirth. You may be eligible for PFL to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child.
To file for benefits, read messages from the EDD, submit online forms, or manage your profile, access your SDI Online account.
