Supplemental LTD Enrollment Deadline–February 28
February 20, 2007, Volume 53, No. 23

There’s not much time left to receive guaranteed coverage in Penn’s new Supplemental Long-Term Disability (LTD) program. Supplemental LTD helps you protect more of your income if you become disabled and are unable to work for an extended period of time. If you’re a full-time faculty or staff member, you received information about this benefit offering at your home address earlier this month.  

Penn already provides generous group LTD coverage at no cost to you, but that coverage alone may not be enough to meet your expenses if you become disabled.  The Supplemental LTD program can provide you with additional income if you’re unable to work because of a long-term disability.  This Penn-sponsored program offers the advantages of tax-free benefits, portability, and enhanced protection if you’re unable to perform the duties of your own occupation. 

As an added bonus, you can receive coverage through this new program without having to submit proof of good health—but only if you apply by February 28, 2007.  For more information, visit the Human Resources website at www.hr.upenn.edu/benefits/disability/SupplementalLTD.asp. If you have any questions, please contact the plan administrator at 1-877-321-4427 or UPenn@IncomeBenefit.com.
