Disability Benefits - Frequently Asked Questions


How much income will I receive each week from my disability plan?

Gross disability income varies from plan to plan, ranging from $75 per week to $375 per week.  Your benefit will be determined by which plan your employer is contributing under and whether you qualify for monetary benefits.  Some plans do not provide weekly income (monetary benefits) for occupational disabilities.


How long may I receive disability income?

The maximum time you may receive disability income varies from plan to plan, ranging from 3 months to 24 months, or the day you return to work, whichever is sooner. 


Why didn't I receive my check this week?

Most often, payment of weekly disability income is interrupted for lack of a current physician’s statement.  Every 30 days your doctor must fill out the “Statement of Attending Physician” located on the bottom half of the Supplementary Disability Claim Form.  If you do not receive your payment, please contact the Administrative Office.


Why is my medical coverage paid for but I do not receive disability income?

Some of the disability plans offered by the Trust Funds include disability income benefits for both occupational and non-occupational disabilities.  For plans that only cover non-occupational disabilities, there is no disability income for an occupational disability; however, your medical plan will provide continued medical coverage for up to six (6) months.
