Get started

A leave of absence will need to be initiated through Sedgwick (855-732-8217) to start the short-term disability process with The Standard. Sedgwick will send the applicable STD forms to you in order to start the process, if appropriate. You will need to contact The Standard Insurance Company directly in order to provide the needed information to open the STD claim. If you remain disabled under the terms of the Corporation Disability plan beyond the term of your short-term disability benefits, The Standard will evaluate your eligibility for LTD benefits. You will work directly with The Standard on this process.
