Policy Procedures

When an employee is disabled for a period beyond six months, this insurance, together with any applicable Workers’ Compensation or Social Security benefits, will maintain the employee’s salary at 60 percent of the base monthly salary, up to a maximum of $5,000 per month.

This insurance program also includes payments to a TIAA-CREF retirement annuity as a percentage of base annual salary. For TIAA-CREF members, such contributions would be remitted to their existing accounts. For members of ERS or TRS, an annuity account would be established with TIAA-CREF, and, at retirement, employees would receive benefits from this annuity account as well as from the retirement system which they joined.
