Questions and Answers
Workers' Compensation
What is the difference between workers' compensation and SDI?

SDI pays benefits to injured workers when the injury or illness is NOT related to work. Benefits are paid for a temporary period of time only.

Workers' Compensation, on the other hand, helps injured workers when their injury or illness is work-related. Workers' compensation also pays full medical bills including prescriptions and travel. In addition, workers' compensation pays benefits for permanent disabilities and provides retraining benefits when disabilities prevent a return to your regular work.
