Long-term Disability Insurance

The City of St. Louis offers Long-term Disability Insurance to eligible employees through The Hartford.


The Long-term Disability (LTD) insurance policy provides you with long term income protection if you become disabled from a covered injury, sickness, or pregnancy. On or off the job, anyone can become disabled and that can mean months without a paycheck. But if you have LTD, you can have:

  • A percentage of your income each month, depending on how much  protection you have.
  • Professional help for disability-related challenges from legal specialists, and  financial and therapeutic counselors.
  • Affordable group rates through your employer with convenient payroll deduction.

All Full-time Active Employees who are citizens or legal residents of the United States, its territories and protectorates, excluding civilian or uniformed employees of the St. Louis Police Division, part-time, temporary or seasonal employees. Employees must work at least 30 hours weekly to qualify.

Coverage is effective on the first pay period following 30 days of employment.

LTD Insurance Buy-up

The City provides Basic Coverage at no cost to the employee that pays you a benefit of 50% of employee base earnings to a maximum monthly benefit of $2,000 per month.

In addition the employee may purchase LTD Buy-Up to increase the monthly benefit to 60% of the employee earnings to a maximum benefit of $5,000 per month. 

There is a 90 day elimination period before a claim will be processed.

Calculation: Annual Salary/12*0.175/100. Example on $25,000 annual salary. 25,000/12*0.175/100 = 3.645 = $3.65 bi-weekly premium.

Need to Make a Change?

The City provides Basic Coverage to employees at no cost. Employees can choose to enroll or cancel Buy-up LTD Insurance during the annual open enrollment or given a documented qualifying life event. In order to make a change, please complete a consolidated enrollment form and submit the form to your payroll specialist.
