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.
