The County provides all permanent employees long-term disability (LTD) insurance which provides partial salary replacement in the event an employee is unable to work due to a non-work related accident or illness. This plan may provide a benefit of approximately 60% of pre-disability earnings on approved claims up to $4,000 per month. There is a 90-day waiting period, benefits are taxable, and eligibility for benefits is subject to claim approval by UNUM. This is an employer paid benefit and therefore it is taxed.
Employees are automatically enrolled in this plan. There is no enrollment form to complete.
