When a California employee suffers a work-related injury, the state workers’ compensation system broadly provides several types of benefits. One of those types of benefits is called “supplemental job displacement benefits” (sometimes referred to as just “SJDB”). The Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit or SJDB is a voucher issued by the insurance company for the purpose of obtaining further job training, education, and skill enhancement, among other benefits!
You would not be alone if you didn't know how SJDB Vouchers work. Majority of the Hispanic community and the general public are ignorant of this compensational benefit. To fully understand supplemental job displacement benefits, workers should first understand how this type of benefit fits into California’s workers’ compensation system as a whole. The foundation of the state’s workers’ compensation system lies in the California Constitution, which sets forth the intent of the people to establish a system of workers’ compensation.
The Hispanic population represents the United States’ largest, and youngest, minority group. SJDB Advocates proudly serve this undocumented community and all of California, they are equipped with a team of highly qualified and experienced counselors that will then provide you with an evaluation and aid you in obtaining all the vocational benefits including the RTWSF $5,000 California State benefit the day of your appointment.
If you qualify, the counselors at SJDB Advocates will assist in obtaining the voucher from the claims administrator. All these services to the injured worker are free and all benefits are tax free. Injured workers are entitled to different benefits as follows:
If the injury occurred before January 1, 2013, benefits would depend on the percentage of disability:
$4,000 - 1% to 14%
$8,000 - 26% to 49%
$6,000 - 15% to 25%
$10,000 - 50% to 99%
