Short-Term Disability (STD) Coverage
Your non-occupational short-term disability (STD) coverage is provided through Prudential. (There is no cost to the employee for this benefit.) After you have been disabled for seven calendar days, the STD benefit will begin on the eighth day and will cover up to 26 weeks of disability. You will be paid for any earned but unused sick time before you will receive payment for STD (see Sick Days and Leaves of Absence). However, you must notify your supervisor. You must also call in the claim to Prudential (800-842-1718) within 2 weeks of the last day you worked to avoid suspension to your pay.
Long-Term Disability (LTD) Coverage
LTD coverage is provided through Prudential. To receive this benefit, you must be certified by Prudential as disabled (due to occupational or non-occupational causes) beyond the 26-week Short Term Disability period. See Leaves of Absence. There is no cost to the employee for this benefit.
Note: All benefits and programs are subject to change from time to time in accordance with institutional policy. A full policy description is available on the intranet.
