Disability

The California Employment Development Department provides State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) for California employees.  For SDI, this generally covers 4 weeks before the estimated due date and 6 weeks after vaginal delivery (or 8 weeks for C-Section).  For PFL, an additional 6 weeks of benefits may apply to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, parent, registered domestic partner or bond with a new child.  Please let us know how long you plan on working and how long you plan to take off after the baby is born.  State Disability Insurance forms and Paid Family Leave forms can be obtained on-line at http://www.edd.ca.gov/pdf_pub_ctr/de1857a.pdf.  Our checkout desk at the office will have the SDI forms only.

Your paperwork cannot be submitted until you start your leave, but should be filled out and left with our office ahead of time.  Please be aware that there will be a charge of $30/disability form for processing.  If you have a private disability policy, a work-offered policy, or work forms that need filled out on your behalf, we will be glad to do so.  Please be aware there also will be a $30 charge for these forms.  If you develop complications during your pregnancy, you may be eligible for disability earlier than the 4 weeks before your due date.  Please submit any paperwork you would like us to fill out on your behalf at least 1-2 weeks in advance.
