Disability and Other Leaves

Short Term Disability

Bryn Mawr College provides short term disability (STD) compensation for partial pay continuation for full-time and part-time employees who are scheduled to work at least the equivalent of 10.5 hours per week (or 546 hours annually).

Service Benefit

  • Less than 6 continuous months:  0% of pay
  • 6 months but less than 3 years:   60% of pay
  • 3 years but less than 5 years:      70% of pay
  • 5 years but less than 10 years:    80% of pay
  • 10 years or greater:                      90% of pay

Payment calculations will begin following the seventh calendar day (fifth workday) of an illness or an injury. Service is determined based on the employee’s last day of work, and is not adjusted for subsequent leave periods unless the employee returns to work for five consecutive working days. Pay includes regular pay only; shift differential, overtime pay, bonuses and other types of extra compensation are excluded.  For more detailed information please review the College’s Short Term Disability Policy.

Long Term Disability

Long Term Disability (LTD) insurance is available to benefit eligible employees at no cost, and is paid for by the College. Coverage protects income in the event of a non-work related injury or illness. LTD premiums are based upon an employee's salary and the maximum long term disability benefits available. The plan pays 60 percent of base earnings after a 180-day elimination period. The maximum monthly benefit is $14,000.

Family Medical Leave Act

Bryn Mawr College provides medical and family leave in accordance with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993. This provides eligible employees to take 12 weeks of unpaid leave per 12 month period.

Please refer to the Benefits Guidebook, Handbooks and Policies and other provided plan documentation for complete details. You may also contact Human Resources with any questions.
