State Short-Term Disability Benefits

Disability benefits are temporary cash benefits paid to an eligible wage earner, when he/she is disabled by an off the job injury or illness. The Disability Benefits Law provides weekly cash benefits to replace, in part, wages lost due to injuries or illnesses that do not arise out of or in the course of employment Disability benefits are also paid to an unemployed worker to replace unemployment insurance benefits lost because of illness or injury.  Disability benefits include cash payments only.

Medical care is the responsibility of the claimant. It is not paid for by the employer or insurance carrier. Cash benefits are 50 percent of a claimant's average weekly wage, but no more than the maximum benefit allowed, currently $170 per week.  Benefits are paid for a maximum of 26 weeks of disability during 52 consecutive weeks.   For employed workers, there is a 7-day waiting period for which no benefits are paid. Benefit rights begin on the eighth consecutive day of disability.
