If your staff member is away from work for seven consecutive days (including weekends and holidays) due to an illness or injury, they must apply for Short-Term Disability (STD). You can only pay the employee a maximum of five consecutive sick days.
The employer must complete the STD EMPLOYER STATEMENT and attach a copy of the employee’s JOB DESCRIPTION. Please note that once you have submitted the scanned copy of the STD form(s), there’s no need to mail the original form(s).
You, as the employer, must provide us with the employee’s actual gross salary from the first of the month until the last day paid by submitting a group change form (GCF).
NOTE: Please send it electronically via email. Do not send the original document unless requested.
Email the forms to Benefits Administration Office. Once the employee is back to work full-time, you must provide us with the exact date they came back to work and the gross salary they will earn from the first day of their return to work to the last day of the month. Please contact our office for specific questions or concerns regarding a disability claim.
