Often, when employees are away from work for health reasons they feel disconnected from their daily lives—and work is a significant part of life. Our programs are designed to help support you and help you return to your maximum functional capabilities and quality of life.
This page is intended to provide information about our Long-Term Disability plans.
If you are a Utility Management, Administrative & Technical (A&T) or ESC-represented employee whose onset of disability began on or after January 1, 2017, in general you are not eligible for Long-Term disability (LTD) until you’ve been out for 52 weeks or more (12 months or more in an 18-month period) for the same medical condition.
If you are an IBEW and SEIU-represented employee whose onset of disability date is on or after January 1, 2018, in general you are not eligible for Long-Term disability (LTD) until you’ve been out for 52 weeks or more (12 months or more in an 18-month period) for the same medical condition.
If you have not been off work that long or want information about time off prior to being off for 52 weeks, please refer to our Medical Leave page for information that would apply to you.
If you're thinking about making the transition from LTD to retirement, there's a lot to consider. The benefits you have as an employee on LTD will change drastically–especially medical premium costs–so you’ll want to be sure you understand all of the benefits before transitioning to retirement.
