You may elect any LTD benefit that is in multiples of $100, from $200 to $7,500 per month, as long as your monthly benefit is no more than 70% of your base monthly earnings. If you apply for a benefit amount exceeding $5,000/month, only the first $5,000 will be effective on the first of the month following your date of enrollment, coverage in excess of $5,000 requires evidence of insurability before coverage is effective.
If you become disabled, your benefit may be reduced by other sources of disability income, such as Social Security or workers’ compensation.
