What is the Short Term Disability benefit, and what amount will I receive?

There are two benefit options from which to choose:

·       Option A:  Pays 60% of your Pre-Disability Salary, up to a maximum of $2,500 per week, with an Elimination Period of 14 days.

·       Option B:  Pays 60% of your Pre-Disability Salary up to a maximum of $2,500 per week with an Elimination Period of 30 days.

Example: if a person’s Annual Pre-Disability Salary equals $65,000, simply divide by 52 (weeks,) and multiply by the benefit percentage of 60% to find out your weekly benefit.

$65,000 / 52 x .60 = $750.00 per week of STD benefit

The State of TN does not offer Long Term Disability Insurance to Higher Education employees. If you are a Higher Education employee, direct questions on LTD to your Agency Benefits Coordinator.
