(STD) provides income if you become disabled due to an injury or illness and are unable to work. You can receive a benefit of 60% of your weekly base pay, up to $1,154 per week, offset by other income benefits such as workers’ compensation and California State Disability. Benefits begin on the 15th day and last for a maximum of 12 weeks. There is a limited benefit for pre-existing conditions; maternity is covered as any other disability. The policy is provided at no cost to you and is paid for by EOI.
