Employees in an approved position of 48 hours or more per pay period are eligible for long-term disability. Disability benefits may provide a source of continuing income if you are unable to work because of non-work-related illness or injury. Enrollment is automatic for those eligible and paid for by Bronson. Long-term disability payments provide coverage equal to 60% of your base pay, but will not exceed $14,000 per month.
Long-term disability has a 180-day eligibility period, or waiting period, before payment begins. Short-term disability must be exhausted before long-term disability payments begin. Sunlife will determine if Long Term Disability applies.
