For our employees hired after January 1, 2010, the city pays the full cost of the premiums for short-term disability insurance. Learn more in the Short Term Disability Insurance brochure. As a city employee, if you need to use short term disability insurance, the weekly benefit is 70% with a $1,500 maximum per week. There is a 14-day waiting period for any short-term disability claims.
Long-term disability (LTD) insurance pays a monthly benefit to our employees if they cannot work after 180 days due to a covered illness or injury. The monthly LTD benefit is 60% of the first $10,000 of the employee's pre-disability earnings. Learn more about Long-Term Disability insurance.
We call our employee volunteer program Denver Good Deeds. Denver Good Deeds is a chance for our employees to give back to our community and serve Denver residents in a meaningful way. Eligible employees get paid time to volunteer one eight-hour day or two four-hour periods each calendar year.
