Long Term Disability
The University’s current carrier adjudicates Long Term Disability (LTD) claims. An employee is eligible to submit an application for LTD benefits when the Health Management Office has confirmed through receipt of appropriate medical documentation that the employee will be disabled for the entire 105 calendar day STD period. Those employees who remain disabled for the 105 calendar day waiting period for LTD will be provided with appropriate documentation from the Health Management Office. During the 105 calendar day STD period, the Health Management Office may request early intervention from the University’s current carrier to assist with facilitation of treatment. This is a voluntary service that the Employee Health Specialist may discuss with employees. The Health Management Office facilitates the LTD application process and maintains involvement until the carrier has reached a decision on entitlement to LTD benefits.
