Once the online registration process begins, claimants also need information regarding their most recent employer. The state of California must have the employer's business name, telephone number and mailing address as they are listed on the employee's W-2 form. Individuals need to know the last date they worked regular duties and hours, in addition to the date they began working modified duty.
Claimants show the wages they earned or expected to receive from their employer after they stopped working. This includes any benefits such as sick leave, paid time off and vacation pay. Workers' compensation claims, and any drug-related treatment facility information, should be included in the initial claim.
Workers must provide a physician's certification of the disability within 30 days of filing a claim. Otherwise, the claim may be returned as incomplete. Individuals are responsible for obtaining the physician's certificate themselves. Filers give the receipt number to their physicians once the claim is made.
Claimants have access to their online files at any time through California's online portal. Individuals view disability payment history, submit documentation and access personal information through the website.Learn more about Social Services
