Options to File for Disability Insurance Benefits
Disability Insurance (DI) provides short-term, partial wage replacement benefits to eligible workers who have a loss of wages when they are unable to work due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy.
If you think you are eligible to file a claim, review each claim type and choose the right one for you.
