What are the benefits for employers to sign up for State Disability Insurance (SDI) Online?

SDI Online is a web-based Disability Insurance (DI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) claim processing system for employers.

Employers are legally required to submit a response to the Employment Development Department (EDD) within two days of receiving a notice that their employee has filed for State Disability Insurance. SDI Online is the best method to meet the required response time because employers will receive electronic notification that their employee has filed a DI or PFL claim, and be able to respond quicker online.

SDI Online is the faster and easier alternative to filing by mail and offers secure transmission of information, reduces paperwork and postage costs, and provides an electronic confirmation of your submission.

To register for an SDI Online account, your company must be registered with the EDD as an employer in the State of California. Employees representing the company may complete and submit claim information on behalf of the registered employer once they have been added to the account.
