Long Term Disability

VMware provides Long Term Disability Insurance for all regular employees.

Definition of Disablement

Disability is defined as an accident or sickness which results in a continuous absence of 13 weeks or more, however, you must firstly meet the criteria set by the insurer.


In the event that you should become disabled, you will receive a benefit of 75% of base salary. Benefits in payment are indexed at a rate of 3% per year.

Free Cover Limit

  • You automatically qualify for Long Term Disability Insurance up to £ 150,000.
  • In order to qualify for insurance amounts exceeding the free cover limit medical underwriting will be required.
  • This will in the first instance require you to complete a Medical History Statement (or telephone underwriting interview) and may entail the insurer writing to your General Practitioner, and requiring you to attend a medical examination (at the insurer’s expense).


You are automatically enrolled in the Long Term Disability Insurance and insured for the amounts under the free cover limit listed above.
