Long-Term Disability

The Long-Term Disability Plan is designed to provide a continuing income to you and your family if you are unable to work for longer than six months because of a total disability or if you are disabled and are suffering a 20% or greater earnings loss.

Basic Life Insurance and Group Supplemental Life Insurance will continue at no cost to you while you are receiving Long-Term Disability benefits.

You may also be eligible for coverage under disability plans not described here. These may include the Paid Family and Medical Leave Policy, the Personal Medical Leave Policy, or government-sponsored plans such as Social Security or Workers’ Compensation.  For additional information, see your Employee Handbook, the Faculty Handbook, and your collective bargaining agreement.
