- Birth or Placement of Child

Long Term Disability (LTD)
- Non-union and Public Safety employees shall be entitled to receive one-half salary for a maximum period of up to 26 weeks with proper medical evidence of such illness or injury. Eligible employees would be paid full salary for the first five days that they were scheduled to be at work as sick time, if they have sick time available. As of the sixth consecutive day out we will pay ½ disability pay and we will supplement pay with any sick/personal time and any accrued vacation time that may be remaining. Once time is exhausted we will pay at ½ disability pay only.
Domestic Partner Coverage
- A full-time Non-union or Public Safety employee may elect one (1) of (2) Long Term Disability (LTD) options.
- Option 1: LTD insurance coverage that provides, after 180 consecutive paid days of medically certified disability, a monthly benefit of 60% of base annual salary to a maximum benefit of $4,000 per month. There is an option for the employee to either pay for this premium or elect to have the University pay for this option. If the premium for this option is borne fully by the University, under the current law, the benefit received by the employee will be taxable.
- Option 2: LTD insurance coverage that provides, after 180 consecutive paid days of medically certified disability, a monthly benefit of 60% of base annual salary to a maximum benefit of $6,000 per month. The premiums for this coverage shall be borne fully by the employee, which under current law, will make any resulting benefit non-taxable to the employee.
Dependent Care Spending Account
- Non-union and Public Safety employees shall be eligible for same-sex domestic partner benefits. If an employee resides in a state where same-sex marriage is legal, such as New York, he/she now must be legally married in the state of residence in order to qualify for domestic partner coverage. Although New York legalized same-sex marriage on June 24, 2011, employees have until July 1, 2012 to provide proof of marriage. If an employee resides in a state where same-sex marriage is not legal, the requirement to be legally married does not apply to be qualified for domestic partner coverage. University benefits available to same-sex domestic partners, subject to the requirements of the insurance carriers and any applicable providers are medical insurance, dependent life insurance (when allowed by state law), tuition remission and other leaves of absence, including Family and Medical Leave (FMLA)

- Eligible expenses include care at licensed nursery schools, day camps (not overnight camp), and child care centers which provide day care and household services (related to the care of the elderly or disabled adults or children who live at home) provided by a housekeeper, maid, cook, etc., as long as the individual is partly responsible for the well-being and care of the qualified dependents.
