What to Know
If you can’t work because of an injury or illness, take paid time off to get better with DuPont’s Short-Term Disability Program and the Long-Term Disability Plan.
DuPont’s Short-Term Disability Program and the Long-Term Disability Plan provide financial protection in the event you cannot work due to an injury or illness.
If your claim is approved, DuPont’s Short-Term Disability benefit provides:
- 100% of your base salary for up to 8 weeks
- 70% of your base salary for up to 26 weeks
If you miss more than 48 hours of consecutive time off, you must contact Sedgwick, our Short-Term Disability administrator, to begin the Short-Term Disability process.
The Short-Term Disability process with Sedgwick includes a seven-calendar-day waiting period. During this time, Sedgwick will evaluate your claim based on DuPont’s Short-Term Disability criteria. Once your claim is approved, Sedgwick will begin paying your benefit until your Short-Term Disability coverage period ends or you are approved to return to work.
Short-Term Disability criteria
An employee must meet each of the following criterion to be determined disabled under the Short-Term Disability Program and to receive benefits (pay) from it:
- The employee is unable to perform the duties of their current position or temporary assignment at DuPont.
- The employee is receiving treatment and care that is most appropriate for their condition, according to their medical provider.
The employee visits their healthcare provider as often as is medically required to effectively manage their condition.
Have questions? Contact Sedgwick or your local site HR to learn more.
If you’ve exhausted DuPont’s Short-Term Disability benefits and are not cleared to return to work, Sedgwick will refer you to The Hartford to begin the Long-Term Disability process.
If your claim is approved for Long-Term Disability benefits, you’ll receive 60% of your base salary, up to a maximum of $15,000 per month.
Returning to Work
When it’s time to return to work from Short-Term Disability or Long-Term Disability, you must check in with Site Medical upon your return and follow local site practices.
