Disability

The Medical Center provides an integrated short- and long-term disability benefit. The plan provides protection of income when an employee is unable to work, or can work only part-time because of illness or injury. The base plan is paid entirely by the University. The short-term coverage provides a weekly benefit of 60 percent of salary, up to a weekly maximum of $1,100 beginning on the 15th day of continuous disability. The long-term coverage provides 60 percent income replacement up to a maximum of $10,000 per month after the six months of STD benefits have expired. The optional contributory plan provides a monthly benefit of 66 2/3 percent of salary up to a monthly maximum of $10,000. Benefits continue for the duration of the disability up to normal retirement age as defined by Social Security or to age 65, whichever is greater.
