Temporary Disability Insurance

 

What is Temporary Disability Insurance?

What are partial wages?

The program will pay workers two-thirds (2/3) of their weekly wages, up to a maximum of $633.**

Who can receive benefits?

Most New Jersey workers currently pay into the program and are eligible to receive benefits when they have a qualifying event such as the birth of a child or an illness or accident which impairs their ability to work. 

In order to qualify, a worker mst have had at least 20 calendar weeks of employment in New Jersey and earned at least $168 per week, or $8,400 a year. **

When do I file a claim?

When filing a Temporary Disability Insurance claim, the claim must be filed within 90 days of the start of your disability (when you are unable to work).

How do I get more information or apply for benefits?
