H&W Deduction Holiday on Jan 10th

The first deduction holiday for 2017 is already here.  Because deductions for health & welfare occur 4 times per month, months with 5 pay periods produce a "deduction holiday".  December 2016 had 5 Saturdays, so the first deduction holiday of 2017 will be Jan 10th.  Because of open enrollment changes a higher number than usual are in "catch-up" status. See link below to FAQ - health & welfare deductions - for more details.

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.
