Life & Long-Term Disability Insurance

Our Life & Long-Term Disability insurance, provided by Lincoln Financial Group, helps you provide for yourself and your important people at home in the event of severe injury or death. OhioHealth also provides Temporary Disability Pay.

We provide Basic Life Insurance at no cost to you, and you can choose additional Voluntary Life Insurance coverage for yourself and your family at your own cost. Age reductions apply for all Life Insurance coverages. Your Dependent Life Insurance is not permitted to exceed the amount you have in total Life Insurance coverage.

If you have been employed for more than 180 days and you are regularly scheduled to work at least 32 hours per pay period, we provide Temporary Disability Pay (TDP) which ensures you have income during a short-term disability or illness. TDP coverage begins after you have missed three scheduled work shifts in a row (or 24 hours of scheduled work time in a row, whichever is less). You can supplement your TDP with Time Away Pay (TAP).

You can also choose:

  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage, which pays a benefit if, within 365 days of an accident, a covered individual loses a limb, loses sight or dies as a result of injuries suffered in the accident.

  • Long-Term Disability Insurance which picks up where Temporary Disability Pay (TDP) leaves off, pays a benefit when you have been unable to work due to an injury or illness for more than 120 days. Benefits are reduced by payments you receive from other sources, such as family Social Security payments, workers’ compensation and retirement plan benefits (minimum monthly benefit $100). Pre-existing limitations may apply.
