Long Term Disability
The University of Maine System is proud to offer a Long Term Disability (LTD) plan to eligible employees. Long term disability is defined as a severe illness or injury that prevents you from working at all or prevents you from working full-time, for a period of six months or longer.
The purpose of this plan is to protect you and your family from complete loss of income should you suffer a long term disability. For complete Information please see: Guide to Long Term Disability(PDF) and Long Term Disability (PDF) available on the University of Maine System website.
Short Term Disability
The short term disability plan provides financial protection by paying a portion of your income while you are disabled. The amount you receive is based on a percentage of your base earnings before your disability began. In some cases, you can receive disability payments even if you work while you are disabled. Benefits start after the waiting (elimination) period. For complete information please refer to your bargaining agreement, Short Term Disability (Faculty PDF) or Short Term Disability (PDF) (Classified, Professionals, and Non-Rep) available on the University of Maine System website.
