Short Term Disability (STD)

Under the University's benefit plan, you are eligible for short-term disability if you are out for your own health condition. Short-term disability requires a 30-calendar day elimination period during which time you are able to use any of your available leaves. At the end of the elimination period, you can choose to either continue using available paid leaves at 100% pay or apply for short-term disability. Short-term disability will pay 60% of your normal base salary and cannot be supplemented with available leaves.

Long Term Disability (LTD)

Southeast's long term disability is an income protection plan for covered employees who become disabled due to an illness or accident. This plan is available to employees who are full-time or part-time employee in a position assigned to work a minimum of 30 hours per week. It replaces up to 60% of your base salary, to a maximum of $10,000 per month less Social Security and other disability benefits.
