Active Health & Welfare – Disability Benefits
If your employer has negotiated self-funded disability benefits with your union, you may be eligible for disability payment on the first work day following a hospital confinement or disability due to an accident. Disability payment will commence on the fourth work day following a disability due to an illness. During any one disability period, as defined by the Plan, disability benefits are provided up to a maximum of 195 days (39 weeks).
If you or your dependent is Totally Disabled, refer to continuation of coverage rights under COBRA in the Rights & Protections section of this website.
