[Faculty Handbook Category #4]
Faculty with an FTE of 0.50 or more will be provided with long-term disability insurance effective on the first of the month concurrent with or following the date of employment. To receive coverage, employees must complete the Life/Disability Enrollment Form.
Disability benefits include 60% of pay up to the maximum allowed under the summary plan description and reduced contributions to retirement. Disability benefits payments begin after a six-month waiting period (assuming the medical criteria are satisfied). No benefits will be paid for the first 12 months for a disability due to a pre-existing condition. See summary plan for details.
