    You can apply for SDI at any time. They will not pay if you are also receiving temporary diability or are permanently disabled. If they do pay then they will file a lien for reimbursement from workers comp which will be deducted from any permanent or temporary disablity awarded.

    If you are applying for SDI because you have reached the 104 week cap, there is no problem...IF your PTP continues to certify you cannot return to work.

    If you are applying for SDI because you have been determined MMI, and released to RTW... you won't be awarded SDI benefits. A doctor must continue to report you cannot work.

    You may be eligible for UI if your ER cannot accommodate your RTW....

    You must continue to be 'disabled' to receive 'disability benefits'.

    You can review SDI here...http://www.edd.ca.gov/disability/
