Disability Insurance
Benefits are payable to eligible workers for disabilities (including pregnancy) not compensable under the 
Workers' Compensation Law, from either an employer -provided private plan or the New Jersey State Plan.
Private Plan*
An employer may provide disability insurance coverage under a Private Plan, but the consen\
t of a majority 
of the workers is required, if the workers are to share in its cost. If you become disabled, request your 
employer to supply you with the proper form to be used in claiming benefits under the Private Plan.
New Jersey State Plan*
If you are covered under the New Jersey State Plan and become disabled, obtain Form DS-1, "Claim 
for Disability Benefits," from your employer or by contacting the Division of Temporary Disability 
Insurance, PO Box 387, Trenton, New Jersey  08625-0387 (Telephone: 609-292-7060). You can also 
obtain a form through our website at . Go to, Temporary Disability.
Important:   Complete and mail all forms promptly. You may lose some or all of your benefits if you 
file your claim more than 30 days after the start of your disability.
*  If you no longer have a job with your last employer upon recovery from a period of disability, you 
should file for unemployment insurance benefits. You may be entitled to an unemployment insurance 
claim based on wages earned before your disability began.
Financing of Programs
These programs are financed by a payroll tax paid by employers and workers. Your employer is 
authorized to deduct the worker contributions (tax) from your wages. These deductions must be 
noted on your pay envelope, paycheck or on some other form of notice. The amount of taxable wages 
changes from year to year.
The deduction may be allocated at varying rates to the Unemployment Insu\
rance Trust Fund, the 
Family Leave Insurance Fund and the Workforce Development / Supplemental Workforce Funds.  
Workers covered by the State Plan for disability insurance contribute to the Temporary Disability 
Benefits Trust Fund. If an approved Private Plan is non-contributory, no contributions can be 
deducted from workers’ wages for disability insurance.
Your employer also pays contributions that are based in part on their employment experience.
