Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
There is no law that says they have to make a private disability insurance policy available to you because you now live in the state of CA. That said, California has a program called State Disability Insurance. All employees pay into this program automatically through deductions from their paychecks. "SDI" pays up to 55% of an employee's regular wages if the employee is suffering from a disability, defined as a medical condition which prohibits them from performing their job for at least 8 consecutive days. You can apply for SDI here. Again, though, you would not have any entitlement to private disability insurance programs offered by your employer because you are now in CA.

Apologies for my delay but it has been a hectic Saturday. I'm not sure I really understand what you are asking. You do not pay anything for SDI, you pay into it automatically each paycheck and that's it. It's not up to your employer to deny coverage since it is a state benefit program. You apply through the link I gave you above. I hope this clarifies but if I can be of further assistance please let me know.
