The Short Term Disability requires no underwriting and is Guaranteed Issue. The Long Term Disability plan is only Guaranteed Issue at initial new hire enrollment. Notices for annual open enrollment will be distributed early to give you time to enroll. Enrollment forms are located in the "Forms Library" for your convenience.
