No one plans to be disabled, but are you prepared if it were to happen to you? Disability can cause financial hardship. A disability plan is a great source for providing the income protection you need. It basically works as insurance on your income: when you are unable to work due to a disability, you would receive benefits to help pay for life’s necessities.
Employees can apply for an LTD policy at anytime during the year. If you are within your first 30 days of hire, you are guaranteed issue of this policy. If you are not within 30 days of your hire date, you will need to complete a Proof of Insurability form and a Life and Long-Term Disability Enrollment/Change form to apply for coverage. You will submit these forms to OSU Benefits at 106J Whitehurst, Stillwater, OK 74078. Upon receipt of these forms, OSU Benefits will contact you with next step instructions.

Applying for Long-Term Disability Benefits
In order to be eligible for benefits under this policy, you must be covered under the LTD insurance plan. Your physician must also determine whether or not you are disabled for six months or longer in order to apply for benefits under this policy. If you are applying for your LTD benefits under the policy you purchased, please read the Employee Procedures Applying for LTD information sheet to guide you through the process.
It is important to coordinate your LTD leave of absence with your department. Your FMLA paperwork should be submitted to your department no later than your last day of work. If you have any questions regarding your policy or the procedures to file a claim, please contact OSU Benefits at (405) 744-5449.
