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
