To help you through a personal serious health condition, as a full- or part-time employee, we offer you short-term disability coverage. After 7 days of disability, you are eligible to receive 60% of your salary and may continue up to 12 weeks. Your premiums are paid by UWMF.
To be eligible for short term disability, you must work at least 20 hours per week (equivalent to a 0.50 FTE).
If eligible, you are covered by disability insurance effective the first of the month following one month of employment. There is no application for coverage.
