Short-term Disability Fact Sheet


Who is Eligible for Short-Term Disability Coverage?

Chicago Public School Board employees who are members of an eligible class.

Eligible Class is defined as:

a) Collectively Bargained Employees; or
b) Non‐Union Employees (Employees who are not members of a bargaining unit);

AND both classes who meet all the following criteria:

1. Who is a full-time benefits eligible employee under Board rules or policies; and
2. Who are actively employed in their position with CPS

Effective Date of Coverage

Employees eligible on the Effective Date of the Plan shall be covered on that date. For newly eligible employees, coverage begins on the first calendar day of the month following a 60 day waiting period beginning on the date of hire.

Employees who are rehired within 12 months from the date of the employment termination with CPS will be eligible for coverage as of the date of rehire as long as they worked 60 days in their prior employment with CPS.

Termination of Coverage

An employee’s coverage ends when the individual is no longer a member of an eligible class, when the Plan ends, or when the employee retires, terminates employment or dies, whichever is the first to occur.
