H. Disability insurance

Reed College reserves the right to change, terminate or otherwise modify any or all provisions of the following benefits at any time and for any reason. This is a summary only; refer to the plan document for specific and complete information

2. Short-term disability


After one year of service in an eligible class, regular full-time employees and regular part-time employees who work .5 FTE or more annually.

College contribution

The college pays 60% of the employee's salary after all accrued sick leave and vacation leave is used.

The plan

During the first six months of disability, if a health care professional certifies in writing that the employee will be fully disabled for a period exceeding six months, the employee will receive payment under the short-term disability plan once all accrued sick leave and vacation leave is used.

If the employee cannot provide such certification but subsequently becomes eligible for long-term disability, the college will pay the employee retroactively for any time loss. During this time, the employee will also be placed on Family and Medical Leave for a maximum of 12 weeks and the time will run concurrently.
