Short Term (Temporary) Disability

When you are unable to perform your job due to an illness, an injury or a disability that is not related to work, Princeton University provides an income replacement plan, allowing you to focus on your recuperation. 

From your first day of work and if you are eligible for benefits, Princeton provides disability insurance at no cost to you. Our Short Term Disability Plan provides income replacement for up to 26 weeks as long as you apply within the first two weeks you are absent from work and your medical provider submits the necessary documentation.  
Contact Human Resources for more information including eligibility criteria.



While the University intends to continue each of the benefit plans, the University reserves the right to terminate or amend any plan, at any time, and for any reason.
