Nonindustrial Disability Insurance (NDI) is a 26-week maximum benefit period that begins when sick leave credits are exhausted. It is optional to use vacation credits, however if vacation is used it must be fully exhausted.
The NDI program defines "disability" as: "mental or physical illness and mental or physical injury, including any illness or injury resulting from pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition". An employee is deemed disabled on any day in which, because of a physical, mental or medical condition, he/she is unable to perform his/her regular or customary work. An attending physician must verify the disability.
