Statutory Benefits are available to all employees regardless of employment status or length of employment. In addition to the New York State Short Term Disability benefit, statutory benefits include Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, and Workers Compensation.
The Social Security Administration requires taxes to be deducted from an employee's earnings in order to provide for the material needs of individuals, families, aged and disabled persons for retirement and/or for expenses of illnesses that may otherwise exhaust their savings. Social Security benefits may be claimed at the time of retirement or a permanent disability.
Federal State Unemployment Insurance provides unemployment benefits to eligible workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.
