This salary-replacement insurance is provided for regular benefited employees. The City of Eugene’s Long-Term Disability (LTD) Plan provides you with income protection if you become disabled from a physical disease, mental disorder, accidental bodily injury, or pregnancy. The monthly benefit varies by pay unit and benefits are payable after the end of the Benefit Waiting Period.
In addition to death benefits, the federal Public Safety Officer’s Benefits Program (PSOB) provides disability benefits for public safety officers who have been permanently and totally disabled by injury sustained in the line of duty.
As defined by Congress in Public Law 90-351 (Sec. 1217), a public safety officer is an individual serving a public agency in an official capacity, with or without compensation, as a law enforcement officer, firefighter or member of a rescue squad or ambulance crew.
