Disability Benefits

  • Cigna
    Eligible employees (20+ hours per week) receive the benefit of the long-term disability through CIGNA.

    Employees should submit a long-term disability claim if they will be absent from work for more than 60 days.  CIGNA requests the claim be sent in 30 days before eligible. 

    Long-term disability coverage pays you part of your covered earnings when you can't work for an extended period of time due to a covered illness or injury.

    • Information on how to submit a claim -  CIGNA Claim Intake Form
    • CIGNA website or 1.800.362.4462 (A Cigna representative is available to help between 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. CST.), or email at CGIClientServices@cigna.com.
      Cigna has a website that provides useful information for you and your family members – from submitting a disability claim and what comes next, what you need to know about family medical leave, information that can help you manage a specific condition at work, and even how to access valuable programs offered with your plan at no cost to you.
