Protection Against the Unexpected
The IPERS Plan provides important protection for members and their families when a member is injured or becomes ill. Disability benefits provide a lifetime, monthly benefit payable before IPERS retirement benefits would normally begin, and without reduction for early retirement.
IPERS' publication, Understanding Your Disability Benefits, summarizes the disability benefits available to Regular and Special Service members, compares the differences between the different types of disability benefits available to Special Service members, and explains the disability benefits application process.
