Hello. Your eligibility for short-term disability will depend on where you live. Only a few states offer a short-term disability program: California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. It's easier to get state temporary disability than Social Security disability because most SSD approvals are for disabilities that last a year or longer.
