What does California State Disability Insurance (SDI) pending processing or claim mean? People are asking on social media.
Firstly let a view of what the California SDI is all about.
California State Disability Insurance (SDI or CASDI) is a statutory (state-regulated and state-audited) short-term disability income replacement program administered by the state of California.
Up to one year of tax-free benefits equal to 55 percent of the recipient’s average gross (pre-tax) income in their highest earning base period quarter is provided under the plan. The lowest weekly payment is $50, while the maximum amount is adjusted every year. The “base period” for calculating benefits is 12 months divided into four consecutive quarters, excluding the preceding quarter – i.e., the lookback period is 17 months prior to disability up to 5 months prior to disability. If the recipient’s greatest quarterly earnings were $3,900, divided by 13 weeks yields a weekly average pay rate of $300. The benefit amount would be $165 a week at 55% of this.
For 2018-2021, the benefit was changed to 60% of normal weekly wage if you make more than $23,972 per year, and 70% of regular weekly salary if you earn less.
