Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI), like workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance programs, is a “wage replacement” program. This means if you are unable to work because of an off-the-job sickness or injury and you meet the qualifying conditions of the law, you will be paid disability or sick leave benefits to partially replace the wages you lost. TDI does not include medical care.
Your employer must provide TDI (or sick leave) benefits when you are unable to work because of a disability. The State does not pay TDI benefits; it makes sure every employer subject to the law provides benefits for the employer’s employees. If your employer does not provide the benefits, report this immediately to the nearest Disability Compensation Division Office.
