DCPS: Short Term and Long Term Disability

DC Government offers all employees the option to enroll in Short Term and Long Term Disability Insurance plans during the Benefits Open Enrollment period or within 31 days of a qualifying life event. Disability insurance is a supplemental insurance coverage that is designed to pay you a weekly benefit in the event that you are rendered unable to work due to injury or sickness. The plans allow employees to receive 66.3% of their income following a 20-day benefits holding period for Short Term Disability and a 180-day benefits holding period for Long Term Disability. The maximum monthly limit is $7,500. Both policies will allow coverage in conjunction with sick and/or annual leave as long as the hours used do not exceed 13 hours per pay period.
