Wake Forest University offers coverage through Cigna to protect against financial hardships due to disability. As it relates to these programs, “disability” is defined as an absence or inability to perform one’s occupation due to illness or injury.
Eligible full-time staff receive salary continuation at 60% of base pay, from the 6th through the 130th work day of illness or injury. If you are a full-time faculty member budgeted to work 1,096 hours or more, a plan is available, contact Human Resources for details.
Long-term disability begins on the 131st workday of illness or injury for eligible full-time faculty and staff. The benefit equals 60% of pre-disability earnings, up to a $10,000 per month maximum. Partial disability benefits are available.
If a compensable on-the-job injury results in a disability lasting more than 21 days, faculty and staff will be paid from the date of the disability.
Once you have determined that you will be out of work beyond five days, immediately:
Provide your manager or Department Head with written medical permission to return to work.
