Workers' Compensation

You may be eligible for disability benefits even if the disability is work-related and you are protected by a workers’ compensation policy. The Board will reduce the plan benefits by the full amount of a workers’ compensation award.

If the workers’ compensation award is greater than the plan’s disability benefit, you may still receive the minimum disability benefit. If the workers’ compensation is a lump-sum payment, the disability benefit is offset on a prorated installment basis over the period that the lump-sum benefit was projected to cover.
