When paid leave is exhausted, employees can apply for disability insurance payments according to the plans they are enrolled in (Basic Disability, Voluntary Short Term Disability, and Voluntary Long Term Disability). Please review your benefit enrollments in UCPath to determine which plans you are enrolled in.
