The Duke University Disability Program provides you with income if you are unable to work due to a disability beyond a certain amount of time, called a benefit waiting period. Your benefits will replace up to 60% of your base salary until you are eligible to retire or you can no longer show proof of your disability. Duke pays the entire cost of the plan.

Please refer to the Summary Plan Description for official plan information.


You are automatically enrolled in the Duke Disability plan on the date you become eligible.
