If you have disability insurance through your employer, your benefit will be capped at 66% of your income. The benefit received from a group disability policy (through your employer) is taxable. Supplemental disability insurance benefits are not taxable. You can add Catastrophic rider on an individual disability insurance policy, to cover up to 100% of your income in combination with your existing employer group DI.

The employer cannot, for example, pay for the president's health insurance when she is out on STD leave and then not pay for the entry-level clerk's health insurance when he is out on STD leave. If the employer does not have a written policy, then all employees who take a disability leave should be treated the same.

Your individual disability insurance policy is portable and benefits will not be affected by moving to a different state. If you have disability insurance through your employer, and move in a new state while working for the same employer, benefits will not be changed. However, if you leave your employer, you may lose the disability insurance benefits through a group DI policy. If you are currently disabled and are receiving disability benefits from the state, you will have to check with the new state regulations on social security DI; If you are receiving benefits through a personal/ individual insurance policy from an insurance company, then benefits are not going to be affected by the state of residence.

No. There is no possible method in which your employer can withhold this. The Government is the governing body for disability insurance. They issue checks for disability. If you are trying to get a workmens compensation claim, the company is not the issuing body either. The company has an insurance company that would pay these claims and again, the administering body is the Government. The employer is only responsible to pay you for when you are working. Compensation claims go through your state.

In the US, California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island impose mandatory state disability insurance programs for employees. The purpose of the programs is to provide some protection against wage loss caused by short-term non-work-related disabilities. The insurance premium is submitted to the insurer by the employer but paid either jointly by the employer and the employee, or entirely by the employer, depending on the employer's good will. There are some limits to what the employee may be required to contribute by the employer. This insurance is in addition to two well-known government disability programs: Worker's Compensation and Social Security. Employees' contributions are federal tax-deductible. Simple answer: No. Group Disability Insurance is not like Group Health Insurance -- and all the ERISA regulations that control how this employee benefit works. With Group Disability Insurance, an employer can "carve out" a select group of employees -- meaning the employer can create a "plan for just one employee (himself!)". An employer can also offer a contributory insurance plan, in which case the employee will contribute a certain percentage of premium. Or the employer can choose to offer a voluntary plan, where the employees enroll on their own accord and pay full premium.
There is no minimum requirement to be able to get disability insurance. Individual plans are available for employees or self employed individuals; These plans have the advantage of being portable - you take them with you if you change jobs. Employers may put a disability plan in place on a group basis, which usually does not require any medical underwriting. Employer groups can start from as low as two (2). Employer group disability plans are usually not portable, meaning you lose coverage when you leave the employer.
