This section provides a summary of the Optional Long Term Disability Plan (the "Plan") as of January 1, 2017.
This section, together with the Administrative Information section and the applicable section about participation, forms the Summary Plan Description and plan document of the Plan.
This Plan provides you with income in case you can't work for an extended period of time because of an injury or illness. Benefits under Marsh & McLennan Companies' Basic and Optional Long Term Disability Plans are based on your "pre-disability earnings" (e.g. annual base salary, excluding overtime, bonuses, commissions and other extra compensation) in effect prior to your date of disability, up to a maximum covered annual base salary of $520,000. If you are approved to receive the Optional Long Term Disability benefit, the Plan provides you with a monthly benefit of 20% of your pre-disability earnings up to a maximum monthly benefit of $8,667. The Company provides you with Basic Long Term Disability coverage of 40% of your pre-disability earnings up to a maximum monthly benefit of $17,333. You can choose to purchase this additional optional coverage and, if you are eligible, coverage under the Long Term Disability Bonus Income Plan.
