UC Disability Benefits

Your disability benefits provide income to replace lost wages. Every disability is different and the University's benefits are designed to address individual situations and concerns.

UC Paid Basic Disability

The plan provides up to 55 percent of your eligible monthly earnings, to a maximum benefit of $800 per month, for up to six months. You will be covered after a 14-calendar-day waiting period, but you will need to use up to 22 sick days, if available, before benefits begin. UC pays the full cost of coverage, and you are automatically enrolled. Your Basic Disability income is generally taxable.
