Short-Term Disability (STD) Insurance

Income protection for unforeseen injuries or illnesses.

Short-Term Disability (STD) is paycheck insurance that protects a portion of your income in the event of a short-term illness, pregnancy, or injury. STD benefits are payable for up to 26 weeks (after a 7-day elimination period) for an approved disability leave. Learn why STD coverage is important.

Non-Exempt (Hourly) Employees

Non-exempt (hourly) employees automatically receive a company-paid core STD benefit of 50% of your weekly base pay up a $150 weekly maximum. You can also purchase supplemental coverage of:

  • 50% of your weekly base pay up to a $500 weekly maximum, or
  • 60% of your weekly base pay up to a $1,000 weekly maximum.

Important Information If You Live in CA, NY, HI, RI, or NJ

  • California employees receive STD benefits through the state disability program instead of Hertz.
  • New York employees may purchase STD coverage to supplement the $170 weekly maximum benefit provided by the state disability program. 
  • Hawaii, Rhode Island, and New Jersey employees may purchase the 60% option to supplement your state disability program.
Exempt (Salaried) Employees

A "pre-existing condition" is a sickness or accidental injury in the three months before your coverage takes effect for which you:

  • Received treatment, consultation, care, or services or
  • Took prescription medication or had medications prescribed.

MetLife will not pay benefits for a disability resulting from a pre-existing condition until you have been actively at work for 12 consecutive months after your coverage takes effect.
