  • Short Term Disability for VRS Plan 1 and Plan 2 Members
     
    A goal of Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is to help maintain your earnings throughout any period of disability resulting from a non-work related injury or illness. LCPS provides employer-paid short-term disability to all benefits-eligible employees who participate in VRS Plan 1 or Plan 2 retirement program.
     
    Plan Highlights: 
    • Employees must file the claim directly with New York Life Short Term Disability 1-888-842-4462 (Espanol 1-866-562-8421)
    • 20 calendar day elimination period;
    • Short-term Disability pays 60% of your salary, up to a maximum of 10 weeks from the first date of payment;
    • LCPS requires the use of sick leave to keep your pay at 100% for as long as possible, including to supplement the short-term disability benefit with 40% from your sick leave, until the sick leave is exhausted or your leave period ends;
    • Short-term disability benefits for maternity are provided the same as for injury/illness.
