Will leave time or service credits continue to accrue while on Short Term or Long Term Disability?

No. Time away from work for Short Term and Long Term Disability will be coded as “Leave Without Pay” which does not allow for accrual of leave time or service credit.

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.
