Disability Insurance

Disability insurance provides you with income replacement if you are unable to work due to a disability for a defined period of time.

All full-time faculty and staff with less than two years of benefit eligible service, part-time faculty and staff, as well as medical residents are eligible to participate in GW's voluntary short-term disability plan through Lincoln Financial. After two years of service, full-time faculty and staff are eligible for GW-paid short-term disability, which covers 50% or 100% of your income, based on your years of service and employee status at the time of disability. GW also provides long-term disability for all full-time faculty and staff at no cost.

Information on how to apply for a disability claim can be found in the Leave section of the website.
