Long Term Disability
Once Short Term Disability (STD) has been exhausted, you may be approved for Long Term Disability (LTD) income replacement at 60% of your monthly target earnings (OTE) up to $20,000 per month.
This plan requires the appropriate approvals from Veritas' LTD vendor, Liberty (800) 320-7585, and your medical provider.
Long Term Disability Benefit
Once you have been continuously disabled for 180 calendar days and your claim for long term disability (LTD) is approved, the LTD Plan will pay 60% of your monthly base pay or on target earnings (OTE) up to$20,000 per month. Your benefit amount is offset by any other disability-related income you may receive, such as Social Security disability or Workers' Compensation pay.
You are not required to complete an LTD claim form. Liberty is also Veritas' Short Term Disability (STD) claim administrator and they will automatically submit your LTD claim to their LTD Administration Group about halfway through the required 180 day LTD waiting period.
Liberty will contact you in writing at least 30 days prior to the end of the 180 day waiting period to inform you of the status of your LTD claim.
