OUR CURRENT BENEFITS AREN’T ENOUGH
Members don’t get any financial benefits through the local if you can’t work due to illness, injury or death:
SHORT-TERM DISABILITY (STD)
IBEW Local 150 Members receive the Health & Welfare $475/week Short-Term Disability benefit for 39 weeks. If you’re unable to work for just 6 weeks, your income lost could be $4,500 or more (depending on your weekly income & current benefit received).
LONG-TERM DISABILITY (LTD)
The IBEW Local 150 health plan does not offer any Long-Term Disability benefits. 100% of your income is at risk if you’re unable to work after 39 weeks.
Only a $20,000 Life Insurance ‘burial benefit’ is currently provided to Members through the Local.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Disability FAQ
It is important to understand that these Life and Disability benefits DO cover COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the event that you contract the virus and cannot work (to include being quarantined after being diagnosed with COVID-19) or pass away as a result of the virus.
The below list provides the main parameters a Member’s claim must meet in order to be eligible to file a claim for the Coronavirus. However, there may be other factors that would impact a Coronavirus claim.
- Only cases of the Coronavirus that are medically diagnosed and documented by a medical professional would constitute as eligible for benefits
- Members who are quarantined due to testing positive for Coronavirus would be eligible for benefits
- Members who are quarantined as a preventative measure and do not have an official Coronavirus diagnosis by a medical professional would not be eligible for benefits, including, but not limited to;
– Jobsite shutdowns for preventative measures
– Furloughs, layoffs, etc.
– Care for a loved one who has been diagnosed or exposed
- The normal waiting period still applies, so the Member needs to be held out of work by a medical professional for longer than their waiting period in order to be eligible
Members enrolling for coverage now, but who do not yet have effective coverage, would not have an eligible Coronavirus claim if:
- The Member enrolls now for a future coverage effective date and already has a medically diagnosed case of Coronavirus or has seen their doctor for signs/symptoms of the Coronavirus
- The Member’s coverage is not effective and in force prior to seeing a medical professional or being diagnosed
