What happens if my Short Term Disability is longer than the maximum benefit period of 26 weeks?

Short Term Disability Benefit payments will stop. If you are enrolled in the LTD plan, you may begin to receive Long Term Disability benefits after your Short Term Disability benefits end.

Please note that Long Term Disability Insurance (LTD) FAQs are for State employees only. 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.
