UNUM Long Term Disability

The plan is available through payroll deduction. Because the enrollment period may vary, please contact your Benefits Administrator at 703-993-2600 for enrollment procedures and eligibility.

UNUM Long Term Disability is designed to protect your income should you become medically unable to work. Upon claim approval, non-taxable benefit payments begin after 90 days of total disability.

When considering this coverage, ask yourself two questions:
(1) Is my sick leave balance sufficient to cover me in the event of a disabling illness or injury?
(2) Could my family survive financially if I stopped getting a paycheck? If your answer to either question is no, UNUM LTD is worth further deliberation.

You may: purchase 25%, 40%, or up to 50% coverage of basic monthly earnings to a maximum benefit of $5000 per month. There are no offsets for Social Security, Workers Compensation, Retirement Plans, or individual LTD plans. Benefits are payable up to age 65.
