Long-Term Disability Coverage

In most cases, injuries and illnesses that keep clergy and lay employees out of work will not last more than a few months. But in some cases, employees need a longer recovery period. As such, we offer Long-Term Disability Insurance, and encourage employees to purchase this insurance before injury or illness occurs.

Your organization may offer Long-Term Disability Insurance as a benefit, or individuals may opt to purchase this on their own.

New Disability Vendor

Zurich American Life Insurance Company (Zurich), a New York domestic life insurance company, will become the insurer for the group short-term disability (STD) and long-term disability (LTD) insurance policies, effective January 1, 2020.

Next Steps and Key Dates

  • If you elect to offer employee-paid (voluntary) disability coverage, your employees will need to make an enrollment decision between November 1 and 29, 2019
  • The effective date of coverage is January 1, 2020
