Long-Term Disability

Roper St. Francis Healthcare teammates authorized to work 64 or more hours per pay period may elect Long-Term Disability (LTD) Insurance through The Hartford, which may replace part of your earnings if you become disabled or ill and cannot work for an extended period of time.

  • There is a 90-day elimination period following your disability date during which benefits are not payable.
  • You may apply for coverage at any time; however, evidence of insurability is required if you do not elect coverage within the first 31 days of employment or eligibility.
  • LTD coverage may pay 60% of your base annual salary after 90 days of disability up to a maximum monthly benefit of $15,000.
  • The minimum monthly benefit is $100 or 10% of the participant’s gross monthly benefit, whichever is greater.
  • The effective date of this benefit is either 90 days from your date of hire or the date you become benefit-eligible due to a status change.
