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



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 for more information.
