DI 52135.165 New Jersey Public Disability Benefits (PDB)

New Jersey established a Temporary Disability Income (TDI) program in 1948. State law permits employers to provide coverage for temporary disability through an approved Private Plan or the State Plan.

Work-related injuries or illnesses are not compensable under the Temporary Disability Benefits Law. A worker may be eligible for TDI benefits while workers' compensation issues are being resolved. State law provides up to 26 weeks TDI benefits unless the worker is paid SSA DIB.

A. Imposing offset

This TDI benefit is a reverse offset plan and will not cause offset of DIB. Code reverse offset per DI 52105.001E.3.

B. Maximum weekly benefit rate

This table shows the maximum weekly TDI rates and maximum duration:
