About the Plan
UNM offers Long-Term Disability (LTD) insurance to most active benefits eligible employees. If illness or injury leaves you unable to continue working, LTD insurance through The Hartford, replaces a portion of your income due to the occurrence of total disability.
When and How to Enroll
First, verify your eligibility.
Next, you may take advantage of these three enrollment opportunities:
Enroll by completing the The Hartford Enrollment Form (coming soon). Deliver your form to the HR Service Center at Suite 1400 of the John and June Perovich Business Center or fax it to 505-277-2278.
Note: If you separate from employment, termination of coverage will occur.
Is Your Benefit Coverage Ending?
If your coverage is ending, you may have an opportunity for continuation of coverage, but you must act within a certain timeframe to be eligible for this coverage.
Generally, you must return the completed Notice of Continuation form to The Hartford within 31 days after your group coverage terminates, or 15 days from the date the employer signs the form, whichever is later. (This period may be limited to 91 days after group coverage terminates.)
