Notice to All Participants – Please Read
The Atlanta & North Georgia Building and Trades Council does not make any endorsement or recommendations regarding these benefits. It is solely the members decision to enroll and learn about the benefits being offered. This program is completely voluntary and benefits can be elected on an a la carte basis.
This group plan has minimum participation requirements for the plan to become effective. Failure to meet participation could prevent the plan from becoming effective, or delay the effective date.
You must be an actively working, full dues paying member of a union under the Atlanta & North Georgia Building Trades Council, working a minimum of 30 hours per week, in order to be eligible to enroll in and maintain coverage.
If you are suspended, dismissed, retire, or leave the union for any reason, you are no longer eligible for disability coverage and it is your responsibility to contact our office immediately at 847-387-3555 so that we may stop your premium payments. Disabilities that occur after being removed from work are not covered. Your disability coverage will resume on the day your return to work (see below “Actively at Work Notice”)
Actively at Work Notice
To be covered by the Group Policy you must be actively at work performing the duties of your own occupation when the policy goes into effect or when returning to work from a disability claim. Days spent not working to include, but not limited to; PLD, vacation, working light duty, and FMLA days do not count as actively working days. If you are not actively at work when the policy goes into effect, your coverage effective date will be deferred until your first full day of active work.
