    Default Workers Comp, Temporary Disability and California State Disability Benefits

    If you get denied for wc TD payments and apply with the state disability you can also get denied so what the heck are you suppose to do live on the streets? There has got to be a better way I cant believe that ARNOLD did this to injured workers it is so unfair*** so they force you to go against doctors orders and go back to work?? I am suppose to have surgery that is nice laid up and broke no other alternative but to go back to work pls see below from the web page from our great state

    You can file an SDI claim, but usually you cannot be paid both WC and SDI benefits for the same period of time except in limited situations. For example, we may pay interim benefits if your employer or your employer's WC insurance carrier denies or delays WC payment, or we may also pay the difference in rates if your WC benefits are less than your SDI benefits. If SDI does pay you benefits while your WC case is pending, we will file a lien to recover those benefits when you resolve your WC case.

    This thread is 6 yrs old... best to start one of your own.
    The difference in SDI... is state... SSDI/SSA is federal.
    SDI is 52 weeks... SSDI is lifetime
