Question:

Can I use the State Disability Insurance (SDI) program?

 

Answer:

The California State University does not participate in the State Disability Insurance (SDI) program, which is administered through the Employment Development Department. Instead, the CSU uses Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI) as the short-term disability program for its employees.

However, employees who have contributed to SDI through a recent (within 2 years) or concurrent employer may be eligible for this benefit. This can be verified by contacting the Employment Development Department at: (866)758¬9768 or through their website at www.edd.ca.gov for more information.
