The County provides Long Term Disability (LTD) Insurance administered through Reliance Standard to regular employees who work at least 20 hours a week. (This is true for all employees except for IAFF Airport Firefighters and members of DSA/SOMT as they have other coverage negotiated through their union). LTD is income protection insurance in the event of certain accidents, illnesses or injuries. The LTD monthly benefit may provide you with up to 60% of your covered monthly earnings, up to a maximum of $7,500 per month. The County pays the monthly premium for all regular employees.
Ultimately, it is the claimant's responsibility to begin and complete the claims process with Reliance Standard Insurance Company. However, the claims process requires assistance from the employee’s attending physician, human resources, the employee’s manager, the department’s personnel support staff (if applicable), and the employee’s payroll liaison.
