Virginia Local Disability Plan (VLDP)Introduction
If you are an Augusta County School division employee covered under the Hybrid Retirement Plan, you are enrolled automatically in the Virginia Local Disability Program.
VLDP provides income protection if you can’t work because of a non-work-related or work-related illness, injury or other condition, such as surgery, pregnancy, complications from pregnancy or a catastrophic or major chronic condition. A work-related disability is the result of an occupational illness or injury that occurs on the job and the cause is determined to be compensable under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act.
The program focuses on assisting you with your recovery and helping you make a safe return to your full duties, if you are able. Under VLDP, you are eligible for:
- Short-term disability coverage
- Long-term disability coverage
- Cost-of-living adjustments
