What You Should Know When You Go On Leave

          If you are on a paid leave, FMLA, your health benefits will continue without any change.

          If you are on an unpaid leave, your benefits will terminate unless you request to pay COBRA.

Q: If I leave May 1, and I submitted claims before I leave, am I entitled to any reimbursement even if I don’t pay COBRA?   

A: If you choose to allow your dental benefit to lapse, any benefit you earned by partial year employment will be pro-rated. For example, if you were eligible for $1000 by May 1, your reimbursement would be for $500.


Q: Will the union dues when I’m on leave be the same rate as when I was employed?

A: No, there is a special lower rate for members on-leave.
