If you are a full time employee, you can enroll in and pay for Short Term Disability insurance. This benefit provides partial salary replacement if you can't work due to your own disabling injury/illness.
Benefits on an approved claim begin after 30-day waiting period from your determined "date of disability" and may continue for a up to a maximum of 9 weeks.
You must apply within 31 days of hire to enroll to be guaranteed the 30 day waiting period. If you apply after this 31 days, you'll have a 60-day waiting period for illnesses or pregnancy during the first year of coverage.
You may enroll or end at any time using the Workday Benefits worklet.
