SEBB eligible employees will receive a basic level of LTD coverage at no cost. The basic LTD coverage insures 60 percent of the first $667 of your monthly predisability earnings, up to a maximum benefit of $400. Basic LTD benefits start after the longer of: the end of the 90-day benefit waiting period, the period of sick leave or other salary continuation, and/or the end of the Washington's Paid Family Medical Leave Act (PFMLA) benefit period.

Supplemental LTD replaces more of your income than basic LTD. SEBB eligible employees can add to basic LTD by purchasing supplemental LTD. The supplemental LTD insures 60 percent of the first $16,667 of monthly predisability earnings, up to a maximum benefit of $10,000. Supplemental LTD benefits start after the longer of: the end of the 90-day benefit waiting period, the period of sick leave or other salary continuation, and/or the end of the Washington's Paid Family Medical Leave Act (PFMLA) benefit period.
