South Arkansas Community College will provide long-term disability (a disability that prevents the employee from performing the duties of their position) insurance for all regular benefits eligible employees up to a certain age as allowed by plan document provisions(maximum benefit may vary depending on age) who are employed at least one-half time or more without cost to the individual. The coverage will be correlated with Social Security and provide at a minimum, 60% of the employee’s monthly salary by combining the disability insurance and Social Security payments along with retirement disability. The maximum combination amount is currently $6,000 per month but this amount may be modified on an annual basis by the College. An employee must serve in the institution for one (1) year before disability insurance coverage is provided.
