Voluntary Long Term Disability
If a member becomes disabled, there are two options available for income protection:
The State Universities Retirement System (SURS) has 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 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
