Long-Term Disability

The University of Memphis is partnering with the Tennessee Board of Regents to offer long-term disability (LTD) coverage to our eligible employees. The vendor offering this coverage is named Reliance Standard.

The special open enrollment period for this insurance has closed. LTD will be among the options for regular benefits open enrollment in the fall.

Protect your income in the event of a serious illness or accident by enrolling in voluntary long-term disability insurance with Reliance Standard. To learn more about long-term disability insurance, view the TBR LTD video.

PLEASE NOTE: Employees who were already enrolled in LTD through our previous vendor have already been transferred to this new vendor. These employees do not need to take any action if no changes are desired.

If you have additional questions, please contact benefits@memphis.edu.
