Bonnie,

At Purdue University, short-term disability insurance is only offered to staff 
who are classified as clerical or service. They are eligible to elect it after 
one year of service.

Faculty, lecturers, and administrative and professional staff are not offered 
short-term disability because of the paid sick leave they are provided 
(clerical and service staff have different sick leave). The sick leave benefit 
has a maximum allowance and rate of pay for a full-time employees as follows:

*         Less than one year of continuous service: one hundred percent of the 
employee's salary for ten workdays (i.e., eighty hours) during a twelve-month 
period.

*         One year but less than two years of continuous service: one hundred 
percent of the employee's salary for twenty-two workdays (i.e., 176 hours) and 
seventy-five percent of his/her salary for twenty-two workdays (i.e., 176 
hours) during a twelve-month period.

*         Two years but less than three years of continuous service: one 
hundred percent of the employee's salary for forty-four workdays (i.e., 352 
hours) and seventy-five percent of his/her salary for forty-four workdays 
(i.e., 352 hours) during a twelve-month period.

*         Three or more years of continuous service: one hundred percent of the 
employee's salary for sixty-six workdays (i.e., 528 hours) and seventy-five 
percent of his/her salary for sixty-six workdays (i.e., 528 hours) during a 
twelve-month period.

Subject: [acupa-l] Short-term Disability waiting period

Good morning,

We are doing some research on catastrophic leave and short-term disability 
programs. If your institution has a short-term disability insurance plan, how 
long is the initial waiting period? 30 days or shorter?

Thanks in advance,
Bonnie Leigh
