Long-Term Disability Insurance

BJC automatically provides eligible employees both short-term and long-term disability benefits to help replace some of the income they would lose while disabled.

BJC’s short-term disability (STD) benefits pay 60 percent of your weekly earnings up to $2,500 per week for up to 25 weeks (or 180 days), after you complete six months of employment with BJC.

Full-time employees, who have been with BJC for six months can receive, at no cost, a long-term disability benefit equal to 50 percent of their base pay, up to $8,000 per month.
