A Temporary Illness Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you weren’t able to work for an extended period of time? After all, you still have bills to pay, even when you’re sick or injured.

For up to six months, you can receive a weekly check to help you pay the rent, buy groceries and meet your financial obligations.

This benefit does not cover time off work due to an on-the-job injury or illness that is covered by Worker’s Compensation or other similar coverage. For additional exceptions and other benefit details, log in at to view the Active Employees Summary Plan Description (SPD).
