Temporary Disability Insurance provides cash benefits to workers who suffer an illness, injury, or other disability that prevents them from working, and wasn’t caused by their job. In addition, if your healthcare provider certifies that you are unable to work because you were diagnosed with COVID-19 or are at high risk for COVID-19 due to an underlying health condition, you may be eligible for Temporary Disability benefits. Most employers in New Jersey are required to have Temporary Disability Insurance for their employees.
