Plan Checklist

  • Review the rules for the Disability Pension in the BenefitTabs™ and the Pension SPD. The rules for the Retirement Savings Plan and the Pension Plan are the same. If you think you have met the qualifications for this benefit, contact the Plan Office to initiate the retirement process.
  • Review the rules for Long Term Disability in the Health & Welfare SPD and then apply for any benefits you may be due.
  • Go over the rules concerning the limited disability extensions to coverage and COBRA continuation coverage rules. Continued Health coverage is an essential component for dealing with your disability.
