A First Step to Helping California Workers Keep Their Jobs: Identifying Likely SSDI Entrants Using State Disability Claims
- The annual number of SDI and WC claims that last for 12 months is close to 80 percent of the number of SSDI awards made to California workers each year.
- The diagnostic characteristics of 12-month SDI and WC claimants are similar to those of national SSDI awardees.
- The characteristics of SDI and WC claims can be used to predict claims likely to last 12 months, but more information would be needed to effectively target early intervention services to the claimants.
- As time passes, those who return to work quickly remove themselves as candidates for early intervention, making it easier to identify those likely to enter SSDI.
