Disability Insurance Plans

Short-Term Disability (STD) Insurance Plans

All California employees, except student employees, are required to participate in a state disability plan. USF employees are automatically enrolled in USF’s Voluntary Disability Insurance (VDI) Plan but can elect State Disability Insurance (SDI) if preferred. The differences between these plans are outlined below.

Voluntary Disability Insurance (VDI) Plan

From their date of hire, USF employees are automatically enrolled in USF’s California state-approved private Voluntary Disability Insurance (VDI) Plan, which is a partial wage-replacement insurance plan, for short-term disability. Faculty and staff contribute through a required payroll deduction.

You are eligible to receive VDI benefits after a seven-day waiting period of a qualified accident or illness or pregnancy disability. The plan pays 60% of your current earnings.

California State Disability Insurance (SDI) Plan

The Disability Insurance Branch of the California Employment Development Department (EDD) administers the state’s disability insurance plan. State Disability Insurance (SDI) is a partial wage-replacement insurance plan for California workers. Comparison of SDI and VDI:
