VSDP provides state employees with income replacement when they cannot work because of a partial or total disability. VSDP benefits cover non-work-related and work-related conditions.
Employees must have one year of continuous salaried employment to be eligible in disability benefits. Benefits are paid after a seven-calendar day waiting period. Income replacement level is based upon length of employment.
Intermittent use is permitted for chronic conditions with short-term disability. You do not have a waiting period for the same recurring condition under these provisions.
