Disability Benefits From A University

Hello there! I'm preparing for this year's stab at NaNoWriMo, and I have a question. I checked Google, but most of what I found was about social security benefits, which I think is different--I'm looking into this, and might use depending on what information I get about this. But I can't really find anything dealing with this particular issue. I also asked my mom because she tried to get disability through her job, but her information only has limited application...she works retail.

If a professor at a present day New York university has to stop working due to illness, what kind of disability payments is he eligible for, if any? How long would they last? Said professor is tenured, I'm not sure what difference that makes but I figure I should mention it. The illnesses are many, this story is about a woman who can give people diseases with her mind, but one of the MAIN ones is cancer. Does it matter if the university is state-run (like a SUNY/CUNY) or private? Also, would he be totally ineligible if he receives some money from publications? (Maybe there's a maximum amount of outside income?) Does it matter if his wife has a part-time retail job?

Anyway, thank you for your help!
