These benefits provide up to 26 weeks of income for active members who are unable to work due to non-work related injuries or illness (including disablity due to pregnancy).
Benefits will not be paid for accidents or sickness arising out of or in the course of your employment except for those subject to the Plan's Subrogation Provision.
