Non-Industrial Disability Insurance

Understanding Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI)


Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI) is a wage-continuation program that provides partial wages to eligible employees who cannot perform their regular or customary work and experience a loss of wages due to a non-work-related mental or physical disability. 

NDI provides a weekly benefit amount for a maximum of 26 weeks per illness or injury.

Approval and Benefit Information


If the Leave Program Manager determines you are eligible for NDI, they will submit the application to the California Employment Development Department (EDD) will make the final approval and administer all claims.
