Can you collect benefits from both California state disability and the disability insurance that your employer offers?
You will have to check your employer's disability policy. Some will integrate benefits with state disability, and others will be considered as supplemental. A supplemental policy allows you to collect benefits from both.

In the US, California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island impose mandatory state disability insurance programs for employees. The purpose of the programs is to pro…vide some protection against wage loss caused by short-term non-work-related disabilities. The insurance premium is submitted to the insurer by the employer but paid either jointly by the employer and the employee, or entirely by the employer, depending on the employer's good will. There are some limits to what the employee may be required to contribute by the employer. This insurance is in addition to two well-known government disability programs: Worker's Compensation and Social Security. Employees' contributions are federal tax-deductible. Simple answer: No. Group Disability Insurance is not like Group Health Insurance -- and all the ERISA regulations that control how this employee benefit works. With Group Disability Insurance, an employer can "carve out" a select group of employees -- meaning the employer can create a "plan for just one employee (himself!)". An employer can also offer a contributory insurance plan, in which case the employee will contribute a certain percentage of premium. Or the employer can choose to offer a voluntary plan, where the employees enroll on their own accord and pay full premium.
Can you collect benefits from both state disability and the disability insurance that your employer offers?
You can receive both. I am not able to provide a more detailed answer because I do not know what state you work in and would be receiving disability benefit payments from. If …you are eligible, you should file a claim with your state, and your group disability insurance carrier. The benefit payments that you receive through the state will be offset from the benefit payments that you receive through the group disability insurance carrier. When you file your disability claim through the group disability insurance carrier, make sure to tell them that you have filed for your state's disability benefit and what the claim's status is. This is of course assuming you are filing a claim; otherwise this is just FYI.

Can I collect both long term disability benefits and unemployment benefits while waiting for next disability benefit at the end of October?

Yes, you can collect employer disability benefits and Social Security income benefits (SSI) at the same time. However, just about all group Disability plans will include a pr…ovision stating that benefits will offset dollar-for-dollar with any SSI benefits you receive or are eligible for, including personal and family SSI benefits. In other words, your employer disability benefits will be reduced in direct relation to the SSI benefits you qualify for. In many cases, the insurance company providing coverage can actually assess an expected SSI benefit for a claimant (specially if he/she does not apply for SSI), and reduce benefits by the expected/assumed amount.
Can a California resident collect Social Security Disability Insurance and Unemployment Insurance benefits at same time?
To collect SSDI you have to prove you are totally disabled and unable to work. Unemployment compensation requires you to be willing, able, and actively seeking full time work …immediately. These two concepts are mutually exclusive, so No, you could not collect both at the same time.
It depends on the state and the nature of the disability. If you are permanently disabled and can't work then you probably can not get unemployment. They will ask you in the… check claiming process if you are able to work. Some states will allow eligibility if you have a disability, but it depends on the disability and whether it prevents you from doing any type of work you would otherwise be capable of doing.
No, employers are not obligated to offer disability insurance to employees, or even offer sick pay to employees. Individual disability insurance plans are available, and disco…unts are offered if multiple employees get a plan, even if the employer does not pay the premium, but each employee pays for their own policy. Multiple employee discounts vary from 10-45% off, depending on the insurance company, number of employees, gender, long-term or short-term disability policies.. For example, an average premium can be as low as $10 per month, for $1000 of monthly benefit. Ask for multiple companies quotes, from an experienced disability insurance independent broker..
SDI premiums are paid by ALL W-2 workers in California AND theiremployers.
Can you collect state disability after your state unemployment runs out. Of course you are now unable to work.
Yes, the disability insurance payments can be paid on top of any workers comp payments received, if the policy's benefit is not integrated with any supplemental benefits. If y…our disability insurance policy is integrated with supplemental disability benefits, then the disability payments will be offset dollar for dollar by any mount received from workers comp or social security. That's why when you get a disability insurance policy, it is advised to include all or most of the disability benefit amount as "base benefit" which does not offset by any supplemental benefits received.
