LONG-TERM DISABILITY INSURANCE (County paid benefit)


Long-Term Disability coverage pays you a certain percentage of your income if you can't work because an injury or illness prevents you from performing any of your job functions over a long time. It's important to know that benefits are reduced by income from other benefits you might receive while disabled, like Workers' Compensation and Social Security.

If you qualify, long-term disability benefits begin 60 after 60 days. The cost of coverage is paid in full by the County of Santa Barbara. Coverage is provided by Voya Financial.
