Long Term Disability


As of April 1, 2022 Snohomish County has a new LTD vendor. If you have a disability claim for a period prior to this date, please contact SHR-LeaveofAbsence@snoco.org for assistance regarding the information for our previous vendor.

Most regular employees* who work 20+ hours per week are provided with LTD Insurance. LTD is a disability income protection insurance that provides a benefit for long term disabilities resulting from a covered injury or sickness. If you become disabled, and are approved for LTD, this benefit combines with other sources of income to replace 60% of your covered monthly earnings (up to a maximum of $7500 per month) after a 90 day waiting period. 

*Exclusion: Airport Firefighters and member of the DSA and SOMT are not eligible for this plan, as they have other coverage negotiated through their unions.
