Disability Benefits

  • The Standard
    Eligible employees (20+ hours per week) receive the benefit of the long-term disability through Standard Insurance Company.

    Employees should submit a long-term disability claim if they will be absent from work for more than 60 days.  Standard 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.

    Voluntary Insurance (USABLE, AFLAC, etc) is also available for enrollment through payroll deductions.  
    Employees would need to contact the individual company to set up the accounts.
