Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

In order to collect State Disability Insurance, you need to establish that you are disabled from working for at least 8 consecutive calendar days and that you have adequately paid into the system to support a claim. Normally, if you have worked in the last year you will have adequately paid into the system.

You can apply for SDI online here. If I can be of any further assistance to you, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
