I signed up for SDI in June09 while waiting for response from CA on my claim. Claim was denied so I received SDI benefits for 7 months which at that point I was declared MMI. Later on in 2010 CA approved that claim after the report from the QME. My PTP requested surgery which was approved and I started receiving TTD in Sept 2010. This coming Sept will be the end of my 104 weeks of TTD. SDI told me that CA still has not paid them back for the first 7 months of SDI benefits, so that leaves me 5 months left of the original SDI claim. My question is if my PTP still has me TTD after WC benefits end, is it easy to still collect the remaining 5 months of SDI? Or will SDI give me a hard time? I will ask my AA about the 7 months that the CA has not paid yet, because I think I read here in the past that if they do I would be eligible for the whole 52 weeks of SDI.
