Basic Long Term Disability
The University pays the entire cost of this coverage, for all eligible employees whose annual salary is $20,000 or less.
If you are disabled, you may receive a Long Term Disability benefit of up to 60% of your base salary (up to a $1,000 maximum monthly benefit) beginning with the seventh month of your disability. Benefits continue to be paid to you for as long as you are disabled, until you retire, or until you reach age 65. In some cases, benefits may continue beyond age 65, depending on the employee’s age at the time of disability.
Long Term Disability is designed to coordinate with other forms of disability payments, such as Social Security and Worker’s Compensation, so that you will receive a total income of 60% of salary (up to a maximum $1,000 per month).
