Highlights
How the Plan Works
  • The Plan automatically gives you a benefit that is 40% of your monthly pre-disability earnings (annual base salary, excluding overtime, bonuses, commissions and other extra compensation), up to a monthly maximum benefit of $17,333. This means that if you have an approved disability, you will receive this amount for the approved duration of your disability less any applicable offsets. Your benefit may be reduced by other disability income benefits (as described in "Other Sources of Disability Benefits"), and federal tax withholding.
