Disability Insurance
Benefits are payable to New Jersey workers who suffer a non-work-related illness, injury, or other 
medical condition that prevents them from working. Temporary disability insurance coverage includes 
new and expecting mothers during their final weeks of pregnancy and recovery. If you become disabled 
and wish to apply for disability benefits, start by asking whether your employer participates in the state 
disability insurance plan or has a private insurance plan.
New Jersey State Disability Insurance Plan	* (“state plan”)	
If you are covered under the state insurance plan, you may apply for disability benefits (or download a 
paper application — Form DS-1) online at 	myleavebenefits.nj.gov	. Applying online is faster. 	
Submit the completed paper application by 	fax	 to:  609-984-4138	
      or 	mail	 to:  Division of Temporary Disability Insurance 	
   PO Box 387
   Trenton, New Jersey 08625-0387 
For more information, visit 	myleavebenefits.nj.gov	 or call 609-292-7060. 	
Private Disability Insurance Plan	 (“private plan”)	
New Jersey employers have the option of providing coverage to their employees through an approved 
private plan instead of the state plan. If you are covered under a private plan, your employer’s insurance 
carrier is responsible for processing and paying benefits on your disability claim. If you become 
disabled, ask your employer for the form you need to claim benefits under the private plan.
Who pays for Unemployment & Temporary Disability Programs?
These programs are paid for by payroll taxes paid by employers and employees. Your employer is 
authorized to deduct worker contributions (tax) from your wages. The deductions must be noted	 	
on your pay envelope, paycheck, or on some other form of notice. The amount of wages that are taxable 
changes from year to year.
The deduction may be allocated at varying rates to the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, the 
Temporary Disability Insurance Fund and the Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds. 	 	
If an approved private plan is non-contributory, no contributions can be deducted from workers’ wages 
for disability insurance.
Your employer’s contributions are based in part on their employment experience.
