Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI)

Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI) provides you with a source of income should you become disabled and unable to perform your normal duties at work.  To be eligible for NDI coverage, you must be a CalPERS member.  If you are eligible, enrollment is automatic and effective on your date of hire.  Currently the CSU pays the full premium for NDI coverage.

Under NDI, if you are unable to work for longer than seven days because of a non-work-related injury or illness, and meet other eligibility criteria, Non-Industrial Disability Insurance provides you benefit payments (based on bargaining unit) for up to 26 weeks.

NDI applications are processed through EDD. Generally, eligibility determinations are mailed to the employee and the campus within 7-10 days after the receipt of the application by the EDD office.  To obtain applications and brochures regarding NDI, please contact the Disability Leaves Office at x83522.
