689 Wellness Program Named

Congratulations, you’ve got the power!

  • Eating fruit instead of candy.
  • Taking the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator.
  • Taking a deep breath when your stressed rather than bottling it up inside.
  • Getting a good night’s rest instead of staying up late to catch your favorite show.

It’s not always easy, but every time you make a healthy choice, you harness your power to impact many aspects of your life: your health, the length and quality of your life, your bank account, your work experience and the level of enjoyment you’ll get out of retirement!

That is why Local 689 and Transit Employee Health and Welfare are excited to officially introduce our new wellness program…

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.
