Filing for Long-Term Disability (LTD)

In order to be eligible for benefits under this policy, employees must be covered under the LTD insurance plan. A physician must also determine whether or not the employee is 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 Claim Procedures for Employees to guide you through the process. 

Process for Filing

It is important for employees to coordinate any leave with their department. The Absence Management Specialist, in HR, will provide the employee with an LTD packet and instructions to complete their claim. LTD paperwork should be submitted to the Absence Management Specialist no later than the last day of work.
