I was just looking for the states that offer short term state disability and these are the five that have it. Employers are required to have it for all employees as far as I can tell. I didn't read alot about it because...Of course....I don't live in ANY of these states....TO BAD for me...Hopefully this can help others tho. If you live in any of these states and are filing or thinking about filing for SSDI it sounds like you could possibly get the temp state disability while you wait for the long process of SSDI!!!...Hope this helps someone out there....thank Mrdad if you wanna thank someone cuz he is the one that turned me on to checking it out!!!!!Hugs...mick!!
