Full-time, regular employees are eligible for long-term disability benefits. These benefits are paid in full by the Research Foundation and begin on the first day following 180 consecutive days of a certified total disability (or when full sick leave payments end, if later) and ensures a monthly income on a long-term basis.
Coverage begins on the first day following one year of full-time service and there is no need to enroll for this benefit.
You will receive 60 percent of your regular monthly salary up to a maximum of $7,500 per month (this amount is offset by other income such as disability insurance, Workers’ Compensation and actual or estimated Social Security benefits).
For additional information, refer to the Benefits Handbook.
