Long Term Disability

All benefits eligible faculty and staff are covered under the State of Kansas Long Term Disability (LTD) program that is paid for by the University. The LTD program is administered by KPERS and the third-party administrator for the plan is UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits.

The LTD plan provides you with income if you become disabled through injury or sickness and you are unable to continue working. There is a 180 calendar day waiting period before LTD benefits will be provided. If approved for LTD benefits, access to your retirement plan contributions (KPERS and the KBOR Mandatory Retirement Plan) is prohibited.
