Some states -- California, New York, New Jersey and Hawaii -- offer short-term disability payments to residents who meet certain qualifications. Each state has its own rules about who can qualify for disability, but typically you must meet residency requirements and have worked for a minimum period of time with earnings above a certain threshold. To qualify for state benefits, you will need to apply directly with the state; this typically means asking your employer for the correct application, getting certification of the short-term disability with your healthcare provider and submitting the application to the appropriate insurance company.
