All active full-time and half-time State Employees who work at least 18.75 hours in a 37.5-hour work week or 20 hours in a 40-hour work week are eligible for Long-term Disability benefits. Active State Employees who are eligible for Basic Life Insurance coverage are eligible for the Commission's Long-term disability insurance program sponsored by the Commission. The conditions for participation, the amount of benefits and their duration, and the premium rates shall be jointly determined by the Commission and the Long-term Disability insurance carrier providing the Long-term Disability Insurance plan.
New State Employees may enroll in the Long-term Disability program within 31 days of hire without providing acceptable evidence of good health and thereafter may enroll in the program at any time by providing acceptable proof of good health to the Long-term Disability carrier.
