MMC Benefits Handbook
Leave of Absence
Because Company matching contributions are conditioned on your contributions and are made only when you are contributing to the Plan, they will be suspended when you take an unpaid leave of absence (including long term disability).
Company matching contributions will resume automatically upon your return from a leave of absence when you contribute to the Plan, and there will be no retroactive Company matching contributions for the period of your leave.
If you take a military or other uniformed leave of absence and such leave is covered by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), retroactive contributions for all or a period of your leave can be made after you return to active employment with the Company, provided you return within the period required by USERRA. Upon such return, the Company will contribute the Company matching contributions as you make up missed before-tax, Roth 401(k) or traditional after-tax contributions. The amount of the Company matching contributions will be based on the amount of your made up contributions. Retroactive contributions will be made subject to the terms of the Plan in effect during your leave of absence. You may choose the period for which you are making the contributions.
