UNM offers a short-term disability plan through Standard Insurance Company. Short-term disability covers up to 60% of your pre-disability earnings if you are unable to work due to disability caused by an accident or illness. Short-term disability payments are available once you have been disabled for 30 days and are payable for a maximum duration of 22 weeks. Short-term disability is a voluntary benefit and is 100% employee paid.
