Default CA SDI and PFL but moving back to UK

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help. I am due Baby2 mid June but am also in the process of moving back to the UK at the start of August. I think at that time I will still be entitled to some disability/paid family leave payments from the good state of CA. Does anyone know how it goes if I claim and it overlaps with when I've already moved back to the UK? We are going to need every penny we can but I don't want to claim something and regret it later...


Thanks!

Are you employed by the state of California or are these public benefits?

These are public benefits.

My employer portion won't run for as long as the State benefits do. (California is pretty generous for mat leave)

California has a state run disability insurance program for short term disability coverage. Every worker in the state for the most part pays into it with premiums deducted from your check.

Its actually one thing I did not mind paying for, it's nice knowing you have some protection and insurance in the event of a medical problem.

Premiums are pretty reasonable as well.

"The State Disability Insurance (SDI) withholding rate for 2015 is 0.9 percent. The taxable wage limit is $104,378 for each employee per calendar year. The maximum to withhold for each employee is $939.40."

http://www.edd.ca.gov/disability/




You will want to call the state office that deals with SDI and ask about benefits and eligibility once you leave California.

Thanks I will do. I think I was unsure if it'd be different because it automatically runs for a set number of weeks after birth so I wouldn't need constant doctor referrals or anything .

You get 4 weeks pre-birth then (if you want), another 6 weeks for a vaginal birth (9 for C-section) followed by 6 weeks of paid family leave to bond with the baby. It comes out at 55% of your salary up to a certain max.

55% of pretax income up to a certain limit AFAIK.

I can't really help with your question. You should ask your HR contact.
