Employee-paid LTD premiums

Your monthly employee-paid LTD premium is based on your desired coverage level (either 60 percent or 50 percent), your age, and your monthly predisability earnings (base pay). To find your premium quickly, use the premium calculator on The Standard's website.

These rates are based on the employee's age on January 1 of each year, except new employees. New employees' rates are based on age as of enrollment date for the first calendar year of coverage.
