If you are a regular employee working at least 50% of a full-time schedule and have at least a nine-month assignment duration in a position that is assigned a salary grade of 72 or below, you automatically become a member in the Short-Term Disability Benefits Plan on the first day of the month coincident with or following your completion of three years of continuous service. If you are not at work on the day you would normally become a member, you will become a member in the plan on the day you return to work.
Cost of the STD Plan
You pay nothing for your coverage under the Short-Term Disability Benefits Plan. The University pays the entire cost of this plan.
