Long term disability insurance

Did you know that Long Term Disability Insurance is often referred to as income replacement insurance?

If you are unable to work for 6 months or longer due to illness or injury, Long Term Disability can partially replace your lost wages. Tufts University partners with Prudential to offer two levels of Long Term Disability coverage – 40% or 60% of your base salary – to eligible employees. If you are not enrolled, consider applying during Fall Open Enrollment!

See the Long Term Disability page for more details.
