This optional benefit provides you with a portion of your monthly insurance salary if illness or injury keeps you from working. To be eligible for benefits, a physician must certify you as totally disabled. The length of time you receive benefit payments depends on your age at the onset of the disability.
ReedGroup is the third-party administrator for the Texas Income Protection PlanSM (TIPP) which includes both short-term and long-term disability coverage.
Active employees are eligible for disability insurance. Employees on unpaid leave of absence are eligible to continue coverage by paying premiums directly to ERS.
Note: This coverage is not available to family members or retirees.
