FAQs

I got hurt on the job, but Workers’ Compensation is not paying me. Can I get disability benefits?

If you suffer a work-related injury, you are not eligible for short-term disability benefits. However, if you suffer a work-related injury and are denied Workers’ Compensation, you are eligible to apply for the Weekly Disability Subrogation Agreement. You can also apply for long-term disability benefits six months after your injury. For more information, see the "If You Become Disabled" section on the Life Events page.
