Short-Term Disability (STD) and Salary Continuation

As a full-time regular employee, you’re automatically covered under the Short-Term Disability (STD) Plan or Salary Continuation at no cost to you.

Hourly Employees:

  • Paid STD is based on approval through The Hartford’s Short-Term Disability Program.
  • STD benefits begin after the 7-consecutive calendar day (elimination period) amount paid varies for each claim STD maximum is 8 weeks including the elimination period. It may continue into LTD if needed and approved by The Hartford. You’ll be paid with your available PTO during the elimination period. If you do not have PTO available, your elimination period will be unpaid.
  • Pays up to 60% of your base earnings as approved and paid by The Hartford.

Salary Employees:

  • Salary Continuation is based on approval through The Hartford.
  • There is no elimination period for salary continuation. It begins on the first day of approved leave up to end of approved leave or LTD eligibility.
  • Under one year of employment, may be approved for up to 3 weeks.  Over one year of employment, may be approved for up to 12 weeks.
  • Paid through Appriss.
  • Pays 100% of your base earnings as approved by The Hartford.

If you are on an unpaid leave or being paid STD through The Hartford and you’re enrolled in medical, dental, or other group insurance plans, the premiums normally withheld from your paycheck, along with other deductions, will be put into arrears and later taken from normal payroll in small payments upon your return.
