Medical Leave and Long Term Disability Picture

Long Term Disability

All full-time staff and faculty are covered after three months of employment. SMU pays the full cost of Long Term Disability benefits, which are administered by Reliance Standard.

If you become totally and permanently disabled, you will receive monthly income equal to 60% of your salary, up to a maximum of $7,500 per month. Your Long Term
Disability benefit will be offset by Social Security disability benefits and other disability income you may be eligible to receive (such as Workers’ Compensation).
