FAQs

I am on Workers’ Compensation. Can I get disability benefits, too?

While you are collecting Workers’ Compensation, you are not eligible to receive short-term disability benefits from the Plan. However, you are eligible to apply for long-term disability benefits six months after your injury. Any long-term disability benefit you receive will be reduced by your Workers’ Compensation and other forms of income. For many reasons, it is to your advantage to apply for long-term disability benefits. Call the Health & Welfare Plan office if you have any questions.
