If You Are Injured On the Job
If you are injured on the job, your medical expenses related to your injury are covered by Workers’ Compensation. The Employee Benefit Funds does not provide or administer this coverage, as your employer is required to obtain Workers compensation insurance under New York State Law. You may also be eligible for weekly income benefits under Workers’ Compensation. If you receive Workers’ Compensation, you will not be paid disability benefits (Accident and Sickness Weekly benefits) by the Employee Benefit Funds.
If you get hurt on your job, notify your employer immediately.
Eligible members may remain covered for health benefits with the Employee Benefit Funds through the first twenty-six weeks of an approved Workers’ Compensation leave.
