Voluntary Long Term Disability
If a member becomes disabled, there are two options available for income protection:
State Universities Retirement System (SURS)
There is a disability component which comes automatically with SURS participation. There is normally a two year waiting period before coverage begins for an illness.
Prudential Long Term Disability
This is an optional program available to members. This program bridges the gap in SURS coverage by:
- providing protection in the first two years of employment
- supplementing the amount paid by SURS for longer term employees
