Short-Term Disability

Short-term disability insurance provides nearly full income replacement if you are unable to work for an extended period due to an approved medical condition. Once you have fulfilled the applicable waiting period, short-term disability insurance provides income protection up to 66 2/3% of your annual base benefits pay (up to $2,500 per week maximum).

Short-term disability benefits may continue for up to 22 or 24 weeks, depending on the Elimination period for the plan you are enrolled in. The benefit is administered by Unum. Learn more in the Summary Plan Description (also available at HR Express).
