PPM Section 14 - Insurance Plans: Long-term Disability and Travel Accident Insurance
Long-term disability insurance
Long-term disability insurance coverage details are outlined in the employee handbook. Also see Long-term Disability (LTD) Insurance.
- Enrollment. Eligible employees who wish to enroll in long-term disability insurance must do so in within
their first thirty-one (31) days of employment. Employees who wish to enroll in these plans
after their first thirty-one (31) days of employment will need to apply for such coverage
and will be subject to medical underwriting and the eligibility requirements of the applicable
insurance carrier. In this case, coverage is not guaranteed and the carrier retains the right
to approve or decline the application.
- Continuation while off the payroll. Long-term disability insurance is not continued while an employee is not on the active payroll.
When and if the employee returns to active payroll status, long-term disability insurance
will be reinstated on the same terms and conditions which apply to other employees in the
same position classification as the employee at the time of the return to work.
If, however, the employee is on an unpaid leave (family and medical leave or sick leave of absence) as the result
of a serious health condition, injury, or accident which also makes the employee eligible
for long-term disability benefits, those benefits remain available to the employee under the
terms and conditions of the long-term disability coverage.
