Disability Insurance

Genesys provides basic short-term and long-term disability insurance at no cost to you.

Short-Term Disability (STD)

If you become sick or injured away from work, and can’t work because of the illness or injury, the company is looking out for you. If you’re eligible for short-term salary continuance benefits, your first five days off are covered as sick time. After you’ve been out of work for seven calendar days and have been deemed unable to work by a qualified physician, the salary continuance plan begins to cover 100% of your annual base salary, stepping down to 70% after eight weeks. These benefits last for up to 26 weeks, including the seven calendar day waiting period. Genesys pays the full cost of this benefit.

Short-Term Disability (STD)
Benefits Begin On the 8th day of injury or illness
Benefit Amount 100% of weekly base pay (8 Weeks)
70% of weekly base pay (Weeks 9-26)

Note: If you need to file a claim, it is important to do so as soon as possible to avoid delays. Contact the Genesys Benefits Team at benefits.team@genesys.com. Short-term disability benefits will be offset by state mandated benefits, where applicable.
