After Your Claim is Filed: Claim Processing for Disability Insurance (DI)

After you file a claim for Disability Insurance, the EDD will need to review and process your claim. A properly completed claim will include the Claimant’s Statement and Physician/Practitioner’s Certificate of your Claim for Disability Insurance (DI) Benefits (DE 2501). Submission of your portion and submission of your physician/practitioner’s portion of the application must be completed within 49 days from the date your disability began or you may lose benefits. Your claim will not be processed until both parts of the application are received.
