There is a 120-day open enrollment period for the NJEA-sponsored disability insurance program. In order to protect your income from an unforeseen disability, please consider enrollment.
Since new members have few sick days, the NJEA-sponsored disability insurance plan is an extremely important consideration. New members have NO income protection in their first year of employment. After that, they are totally unprotected for the first 6 months of disability unless they purchase disability insurance.
Anyone who misses the open enrollment period can be denied coverage due to health issues. Additional open enrollments are offered to each local association on approximately a three-year cycle.
