Are SMP members eligible to receive disability benefits?
Yes. Disability applications may be obtained from your employer. You will complete the employee section. Your employer will complete their section. The final section needs to be completed by your physician and forwarded to SURS along with the appropriate medical documentation. A Medical Claims Processor will then research the claim and determine whether eligibility is granted or denied. If granted, the claim is then forwarded to a claims calculator who will determine the amount of the disability benefit.
