MMC Benefits Handbook
Short Term Disability Benefits Payroll Policy
Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. provides salary continuation through the Short Term Disability (STD) Benefits Payroll Policy. Under the STD Benefits Payroll Policy, an employee may receive replacement income based on a percentage of their base salary for a period of absence of up to 26 weeks due to a qualifying serious health condition.
Coverage under the STD Benefits Payroll Policy automatically begins on the date an eligible employee meets the eligibility requirements.
The STD Benefits Payroll Policy is not governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). Thus, ERISA requirements including providing a Summary Plan Description, filing an annual report (Form 5500 Series), or making a summary annual report available do not apply to the STD Benefits Payroll Policy.
To the extent that the Administrative Information section of the Benefits Handbook refers to a Summary Plan Description, for purposes of this STD Benefits Payroll Policy that term should be replaced with the term STD Benefits Payroll Policy. Additionally, to the extent that the terms of this section conflict with the terms in the Administrative Information section, an employee's rights will always be determined under the provisions of this STD Benefits Payroll Policy and its administrative rules.
