Applying for Disability Benefits
If it appears you will be disabled for more than 60 days and that your disability will extend beyond the period you are eligible for sick pay, you should request a Disability Application from your personnel office. Your application must be on file with SURS within one calendar year after the date on which you disability occurred.
When a loved one is lost, it is a very difficult time for a spouse to have to make decisions, gather documents, and complete forms. This information has been prepared to help spouses, family, and friends when the death of a SURS member occurs. Remember, SURS representatives are available Monday-Friday from 8:00-4:30 to provide assistance by phone or in person at the SURS office. Although it is not required, SURS does encourage appointments so that we can ensure someone will be available to assist you.
