Disability Coverage

Short-term disability

If you’re sick or injured and unable to work for an extended period, Samsara provides a company-paid short-term disability (STD) benefit.

Here’s how the coverage works:

  • The benefit provides up to 66.67% of your pre-disability base salary + bonus/commissions.

  • The benefit becomes effective on the eighth day of a disability due to sickness or injury.

  • The maximum benefit is $2,500 per week, paid for up to 12 weeks; after this period, you would typically become eligible for the long-term disability benefit.

  • Your STD benefit may be offset by other benefits received, such as state disability.

Long-term disability

Samsara provides a company-paid long-term disability (LTD) benefit to help replace a portion of your income if you become fully disabled because of sickness or injury.

Here’s how the coverage works:

  • After a 90 day elimination period, the LTD benefit replaces 66.67% of your monthly pre-disability salary + bonus/commissions.

  • The maximum benefit is $12,000 per month.

  • Benefits will continue paying for as long as you remain disabled, until your social security retirement age.

  • The LTD plan is offset by other benefits received, such as state disability.
