Did you know that you’re not covered by California Disability Insurance? California educators do not pay into Social Security, so we also don’t pay into CASDI like every other employee in California. Sure, you have sick leave like most workers, but do you have enough for several years if you had a disability caused by an illness or an accident on the job or off the job? Of course you don’t. Nobody does.
You’re not going to remember much of this so Suzanne, the Standard rep, and I will visit EVERY school site during October and November.

Or, click here to visit the Standard Disability website created just for MEA to provide more information.
Our Standard Disability Insurance Campaign is during the months of October and November. This campaign allows a member to purchase Standard Disability Insurance without any health care exam or questions being asked. This only happens every four years, so I would encourage those of you that don’t have it to seriously consider it. Many of you have contacted me with horror stories about American Fidelity, so don’t believe me about it. Believe your fellow staffers. If someone loves American Fidelity, ask if they have ever had to use it. If they haven’t, they haven’t read the fine print.
