What does is CA SDI mean on my W-2?

CASDI stands for California State Disability Insurance. This is a wage replacement program run by the state for workers unable to work due to a NON-work related illness or injury. It is funded by employee payroll deductions and will be found on W-2 forms of employees who work in California.
