The article discusses the model approach for the New York Disability Benefits Law. The New York Law is criticized by welfare state planners in Washington because each employed group is required to carry the cost of its own insurance risk in its system of private insurance. The principles that should be incorporated by any well-operating disability benefits law include system based on private insurance, financing, waiting period, benefit formula, nonduplication of benefit payments, subrogation, ineligibility requirements, medical examination, pregnancy benefits, union contracts and administration.
