System Maintenance: SDI Online

Due to scheduled system maintenance, SDI Online will be unavailable from Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 9 p.m. through Sunday, January 15, 2017 at 12 noon.

During this period, you may access your claim and check payment information using the Disability Insurance (DI) Automated Phone Information System or Paid Family Leave (PFL) Automated Phone Information System.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience during this maintenance period.

EDD Closed for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

Employment Development Department offices will be closed on Monday, January 16, 2017, for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. For Unemployment, Disability Insurance, and Paid Family Leave claimants, benefit payments may require an additional 1-2 days for processing. Visit the State Holidays page for more information.

The Employment Development Department (EDD) automated some key State Disability Insurance (SDI) services to better serve you with your Disability Insurance (DI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) needs.

SDI Online is convenient and secure. The system reduces claim processing time, provides electronic confirmation of forms submitted online, decreases costs in paper and postage, and includes security safeguards to detect and manage fraud and abuse. A mobile-friendly version, SDI Online Mobile is available for your smartphone and tablet.
