Short term disability



Recommended Posts

Hi all so excited that surgery is nearing on the 14th of November and I have almost finished this liquid diet, I got everything lined up except I'm not sure if I'll qualify for Ca state disability or who I talk to about getting it. I have a physically demanding job that requires heavy lifting and repetitive motion so doc says I'll probably be out 3-4 weeks, I have some $ saved up but if I could get short term disability it would really help get through this time. Any information is greatly appreciated.

If you live in CA and you have worked at your job for over 12 months (there may be other qualifications such as size of company, etc.), you should qualify for CA disability. I use it every time I have a medical leave. You should contact HR at your job and they should be able to give you the paperwork or a person to speak with the start the process. Good luck.

Yes, a note stating you can't perform your job will qualify you. You will need to prepare for 7 days of no income, then they qualify you. Good luck

I received 2 months of California disability for my sleeve. I'm a pilot, and 2 months off was required by the FAA. California didn't question it.
