Can my spouse sign up for Short Term or Long Term Disability insurance?

No. The disability insurance program is for active and eligible employees only. If your spouse is also an active and eligible employee, he or she may apply as an employee.

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.
