The issue in GetHuman2474122's own words
I'm an intermittent employee of Oakland Museum of California. I injured myself on the job & notified employer on ********. First appointment with Kaiser Occ Health was on ******* and workers comp claim form was delivered to employer *******, which was also my last scheduled day of work at the museum for ****. On ********, OMCA's workers comp carrier, Republic Indemnity, denied me wage compensation benefits because I was not scheduled to work at OMCA between ******* and *******. Normally, I would have other short-term jobs at other museums, and*or collect some unemployment benefits until I was scheduled to return to work at OMCA on *******. But I had to turn down two offers of work because of my injury, and Unemployment told me over the phone they wouldn't approve a claim because I was under doctor's supervision. The letter I got from Republic Indemnity was titled Denial of Temporary Disability Benefits, and I was confused, I thought this referred to CA Disability Insurance, so I did not apply for SDI. Now I understand that SDI is different from the Republic Indemnity disability insurance, but I see on the SDI website that I should have filed within ** days. I've been trying to get ahold of someone at SDI by phone but never even get into the queue. I'm hoping to get in touch with someone who could help me figure out if I could*should try to apply for SDI. I returned to work at OMCA on **** and am scheduled through *******. I am technically on "Full Duty" but I am being accommodated by my employer by doing work I don't usually do, but I am also still symptomatic and still trying to resolve medical treatment issues. Can you help me figure out what to do?
