The Short-Term Disability Plan

Effective 7/2/2023
The JPMorgan Chase Short-Term Disability Plan (the "STD Plan") is designed to provide you with time off and short-term disability pay if you become unable to work because of an approved disability caused by illness or injury.
Based on your years of recognized service, the plan may provide short-term disability pay equal to all or a portion of your eligible compensation for up to 25 weeks per qualified disabling event. Employees in New Jersey may be entitled to 26 weeks of paid statutory STD benefits.
This section of Your JPMC Benefits Guide will provide you with a better understanding of how the STD Plan works, including how and when benefits are paid. Other types of leave may be applicable to your situation; for more information, please consult the Leave of Absence policies, available at me@jpmc > HR Policies > Leaves of Absence.
Leave taken under the STD Plan may run concurrently with other types of leave, including qualifying leave under the Family and Medical Leave Policy. The requirements for each type of leave must be satisfied in order for leaves to run concurrently.
For questions about the STD Plan or to report a claim, contact Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc.
