Your own serious illness, disability, or maternity leave

The Maritz short-term disability program provides weekly income protection to regular full-time employees during the first 26 weeks of illness, injury, or pregnancy.  However, please note that benefits for normal pregnancies with no complications are limited to 6 weeks following the delivery date (or 8 weeks for a c-section).

To protect you and your family from financial hardship in case of a long-lasting illness or injury, the long-term disability insurance plan provides meaningful income replacement to full-time employees after 180 days of disability.

Both short-term and long-term disability plans are managed by Lincoln Financial Group (formerly called Liberty Mutual).

Short-term disability benefits are payable starting with the first day of absence if you are unable to work for 6 or more consecutive days. For absences lasting only 5 days or less, refer to the policy for other absences.

You may file a new disability claim with Lincoln Financial (formerly Liberty Mutual) by phone at 1-888-408-7300 or online at (register as a new user first and enter Maritz as the company code when prompted).

For further information regarding instructions for filing a disability claim and your responsibilities during the leave process, refer to the appropriate Instructions document below, depending on whether your leave is for maternity or other non-maternity medical reasons. For additional information about short-term or long-term disability benefits, refer to the policy below for each benefit.
