Short-term disability insurance
Short-term disability is designed to supplement other leave benefits after all but 80 hours of leave time have been exhausted, unless your union contract specifies that all leave time must be exhausted.
You are considered disabled if you are unable to perform the material duties of your occupation and suffer a loss of at least 20 percent of your earnings when working in your occupation.
To qualify, your standard work hours need to be 30 or more per week in a regular, limited duration, or grant funded position.
Short-term disability insurance is provided by Standard Insurance Company.
