Monday, July 26, 2010 | 8:26 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The Boone County Fire Protection District will now offer long-term disability insurance to its full-time employees.

At its meeting Monday night, the Fire District board unanimously approved an insurance plan offered through Assurant Employee Benefits. The plan lasts 24 months and will cost the district $363 per month.

Under the plan, employees can receive up to 60 percent of their income once they are declared disabled. The benefits will start after a 90-day waiting period.

Employees who work at least 30 hours per week will be covered by the insurance. The district will cover the cost of the insurance, board chairman Dave Griggs said.
