You will not be eligible for benefit consideration for a total disability commencing during a leave of absence, layoff or suspension unless you have elected to keep your coverage in force during the leave of absence, layoff or suspension.

Please refer to the Continuation of Coverage During Absence From Work section of the WIP Policy Booklet, attached below, for more information on total disability beginning during an absence from work and prepayment of premium guidelines.

Prepayment of premiums is not required for an absence from the payroll of 15 calendar days or less. Prepayment of premiums is required for an absence from the payroll of 16 or more calendar days for one of the following reasons. You must prepay the required premium in full within 30 days in order to be eligible for benefit consideration immediately following the end of any of these periods:

If your leave of absence of 16 or more calendar days precedes your vacation and you have not prepaid the premium for that leave of absence in accordance with the Continuation of Coverage During Absence From Work section, coverage will not be reinstated until you return to active work. No prepayment of premiums is required when you are absent from work due to vacation.
