This is the number of days you must be disabled before you can collect disability benefits.
The 180-day elimination period can be met through either total disability (out of work entirely) or partial disability (working with a reduced schedule or performing different types of duties).
Coverage Period for Your Occupation
This is the coverage period for the trade or profession in which you were employed at the time of your disability (also known as your own occupation).
You may be eligible to continue receiving benefits if your disability prohibits you from any employment for which you are reasonably suited through your training, education, and experience. In this case, your benefits are extended through the end of your maximum coverage period.
Maximum Coverage Period
This is the total amount of time you can collect disability benefits (also known as the benefit duration).
Benefits are limited to 24 months for mental illness; 24 months for substance abuse.
If you have a medical condition that begins before your coverage takes effect, and you receive treatment for this condition within three months leading up to your coverage start date, you may not be eligible for benefits for that condition until you have been covered by the plan for 12 months.
