Long Term Disability (LTD) Premium Rate Increase
Effective December 1, 2022, MetLife's Long Term Disability insurance (LTD) rates will increase by 13.5 percent.
Why are the rates increasing?
The rates are set by MetLife, the insurance company RPB contracts with to provide LTD insurance. The premium increase is consistent with rising costs across the disability insurance industry due to the growing number of LTD claims in recent years.
When is the increase effective?
The new rates will take effect for employees renewing or enrolling in LTD coverage for 2023. The rate increase does not apply to coverage already paid through the end of 2022.
