8.6.3 Long Term Disability
Revised June 2007
Regular full-time faculty (faculty who are scheduled to work at least 20 hours per week or 50% FTE) and at least 9 months per year are enrolled automatically in the long term disability program. Contributions are shared by the faculty member and the University. After a six month disability period, the plan provides a tax-free benefit of 60%of the faculty member's pre-disability earnings up to a monthly maximum. In addition, a contribution of 10% of pre-disability earnings will be contributed to the TIAA-CREF Retirement Plan, if the faculty member is enrolled.
