The State Disability Insurance (SDI) withholding rate for 2008 is 0.8%. The withholding only applies to the first $86,698 that an employee earns in a year so the maximum amount that will be withheld is $693.58.
I'm sorry, I misunderstood your question. Your benefit would be approximately 55 percent of the earnings shown in the highest quarter of your base period (based on a 12 month period that is 5 months to 12 months before the disability claim). However, for disabilities beginning January 1, 2008, or after, weekly benefits will range from $50 to a maximum of $917.
