After one year of full-time employment and after sick leave has been exhausted, eligible employees are paid 75% of their base salary for up to six months.  Employees who accumulate annual leave will use accumulated and unused annual leave to make up the difference between short-term disability payments and full salary.


LONG-TERM DISABILITY  (VOYA Group Long-Term Disability Plan)

Long-term disability is a benefit to employees after they have been employed for one year.  After six (6) months of disability, the policy pays up to 60% of basic annual salary less social security, retirement, workers’ compensation, etc.  Premiums are currently paid by the University.

NMU has partnered with VOYA Financial to provide long-term disability insurance to employees who work at least thirty (30) hours per week and to faculty who teach twelve (12) or more credited hours in a school year.
