Disability Extension

Extension of Coverage During Disability

If you are unable to work either because of an occupational disability for which you receive benefits from Workers' Compensation, or a non-occupational disability for which you may be entitled to benefits under this Plan, coverage for you and your dependents will be continued during the period of disability up to a maximum of 6 months from the end of the month in which your disability commenced.

 The disability extension application must be received at the Trust Fund Office within 6 months of the effective date of disability. The disability extension will be granted once the bank hours are depleted.
