Plan Contributions and Long Term Disability (Effective July 1, 2005)

Eligible employees participating in the Mandatory Retirement Plan who become disabled and begin receiving benefits under the long term disability program sponsored and maintained by the Kansas Public Employees' Retirement System (KPERS LTD Program) are entitled to have continued employer contributions made on their behalf to the Retirement Plan. Continued employer contributions will equal 14% of your compensation (your base salary on the date that you began receiving benefits under the KPERS LTD Program). Continued employer contributions will cease at the earliest of:

  1. the date that you are no longer entitled to receive benefits under the KPERS LTD Program,

  2. the date the you die, or

  3. five (5) years after the date that you become disabled and began receiving benefits under the KPERS LTD Program.

Some employees may be eligible for certain transition long-term disability benefits at the end of the five (5) year period. Contact HRS for more information.
