Disability

Lam Research provides financial protection options for you if you're in an accident or become ill and are unable to work. Benefit payments are not taxable.

There are two types of income insurance:

Short-Term Disability (STD)

  • Seven-day waiting period: During this time, non-exempt employees can use paid time off to ensure pay continuation. If you are hospitalized, the seven-day waiting period is waived.
  • Pays 70% of covered earnings for up to 180 days. You cannot request paid time off to supplement this disability pay.
  • Maximum weekly benefit: $3,250.

Conditions and limitations apply. Learn more about Short-Term Disability Plan [PDF] and the California Voluntary Disability Insurance (VDI) program [PDF].
