Unum Leave Administration - Request & Claim Processing
UVA HR is moving the administration of family medical leave and military leave to an outside partner firm called Unum effective January 1, 2020. This affects all employees - faculty, staff, professional research staff, and team members throughout the University in the Academic Division, the College at Wise, and the Medical Center. Paid Parental leave will also be managed by Unum for Academic Division and Medical Center staff only. For faculty and professional research staff, parental leave and sabbatical will remain with UVA HR. Personal and education leave will also remain with UVA HR for all employees. See your position category below for details. For those on the ORP retirement plan, disability will shift from The Standard to Unum for new short-term disability and long-term disability claims. For those on the VRS retirement plan, disability claims will remain with The Reed Group. Please note - there are NO changes to leave benefits, the only difference is you will submit leave requests directly to Unum instead of to UVA HR.
