Disability

If you’re unable to work because of a non-work related illness or accident, disability benefits can replace some lost income.

  • Short-term disability (STD) — After you’ve been disabled for 14 days, STD replaces 60% of your weekly salary, up to $2,500 per week. Benefits may last up to 11 weeks. Evidence of Insurability (EOI) is required if you elect this coverage during Open Enrollment.
  • Long-term disability (LTD) — After you’ve been disabled for 90 days, LTD replaces 60% of your monthly salary, up to $15,000 per month. No EOI is required.

Do you have a medical condition?

You may not be eligible for LTD benefits for 12 months if you received treatment for a condition within three months of when your disability coverage begins.

$646.15 x 0.291 / $10 = $18.80

STD weekly benefit maximum: $2,500

Long-term disability (LTD) premiums

Rate $0.266 / $100 of covered salary

LTD calculation example - monthly payroll
