Disability

Disability Income Plan of North Carolina (DIPNC)

DIPNC provides a monthly replacement income in the form of short-term, extended short-term, and long-term disability benefits in the event you become disabled while you are a permanent employee. To be eligible, you must meet certain requirements.

Short-Term Disability

In order to qualify for this benefit, you must have at least one year of contributing retirement membership service earned within the 36 calendar months preceding your disability, and meet all plan requirements.

Benefits are paid by the employer after a 60-day waiting period and provide monthly income (before any offsets) equal to 50 percent of one-twelfth of your annual base salary. This benefit is payable up to 365 calendar days.

Extended Short-Term Disability

An additional period of Short-Term Disability may be approved, not to exceed 365 days. You must meet all disability requirements and be approved by the plan’s medical board.

Long-Term Disability

To be eligible for Long-Term Disability (LTD), employees must have five years of contributing retirement service earned within the 96 calendar months immediately prior to becoming disabled, or the date of completion of uninterrupted salary continuation payments. If you meet all requirements, LTD pays a monthly income (before any offsets) of 65 percent of one-twelfth of your annual base salary. You must be approved by the plan’s medical board in order to qualify for LTD payments.
