My TTD 104 weeks are up. The insurance company paid back EDD SDI from when they paid me while my WC claim was denied.
Now that my TTD 104 weeks is exhausted, I want to file for EDD SDI again and see if I qualify for SDI. Since I haven't worked in 2 years and still not able to (dr. won't say I'm MMI or P&S yet, so no rating yet).
I don't have income from a job in my base period, but I've read on the internet people in my situation are able to get EDD SDI for up to 52 weeks.
Do I need to fill out the EDD SDI application a certain way?
It sure would help if the dr. would rate me, so I can be done with all this.
Thank you in advance for any feedback.
Update for anyone reading.....,
I spoke with EDD SDI in great detail about this.
Because the IC paid back the lien to SDI, the funds were put back into my SDI account. Now that my 104 weeks of TTD are up, I can now use what EDD SDI called a claim extension.
EDD SDI said I need to mail or take them a copy of my letter saying that TTD is over and the amounts paid which the IC mailed with the last payment. Then my PTP dr. just needs to fill out and submit a medical extension form.
So to answer my own question and to advise anyone else with the same question YES you are able to get the EDD SDI after your 104 weeks of TTD are up and you haven't reached MMI yet.
