Several states provide or require employers to provide short-term state disability insurance (SDI). In some states, it's called temporary disability insurance (TDI). These short-term disability programs provide partial pay replacement to workers who have to take leave from work for more than a few days because of an injury, illness, or pregnancy and recovery from childbirth.
The states that have some type of SDI program are:
- California (CA
- Hawaii (HI)
- New Jersey (NJ)
- New York (NY)
- Rhode Island (RI)
The eligibility requirements for these programs and how they operate vary greatly between states.
