ASEBP’s Extended Disability Benefits (EDB) plan is a total disability plan. If you are unable to perform your normal duties due to illness or injury, ASEBP's EDB plan provides income replacement and ensures you receive appropriate treatment during the recovery process if your claim is approved.

As part of your EDB coverage, ASEBP's Health & Disability Management Services team works with you and the appropriate health care providers to design individualized plans to assist you through your treatment, your recovery, and your return to work. If your disability precludes a return to work, ASEBP will assist you in quality of life issues.

For full details about each plan option as summarized below, click the "Benefit Guide" link on the right side of this page.

If you are disabled due to an accident, you may be entitled to additional benefits under the Accidental Death & Dismemberment Plan (click to view the online benefit guide).
