Short Term Disability Members Please Take Notice

If you are currently on short term disability your check will arrive when it normally does, but will be sent from a payroll service company called ADP, effective October 3, 2014. Nothing changes except the look of the check and envelope.

There is an added benefit that ADP provides through a smart phone app. If you are interested in gaining access to the self service functions through the ADP app, call the Transit Employee Health and Welfare office and provide your email address.

We can be reached at (301)-568-2294.

Feel free to contact us with any questions regarding this topic.

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.
