The Details

What you need

If you are an eligible state employee and do not enroll when first hired, you can apply for LTD coverage during Annual Enrollment, or at any time during the year. You must provide evidence of good health for Unum's approval to enter the plan. LTD coverage can be canceled throughout the year. Enrollment and cancellation effective dates are determined by the GIC.
