The Long Term Disability program provides income replacement and protection against long term loss of income due to injury or illness.
Participating groups can design their own Long Term Disability plan and determine the level of income replacement offered to Plan Members. Benefits typically commence after 17 or 26 weeks of disability. The tax status of the LTD benefit is determined by whoever pays the premium.
