What happens if I can not return to work after Short Term Disability?

After weeks of short term disability. If you have more than 15 years but less than 20 years, you will receive full pay on disability for 26 weeks, then half pay for 26 weeks.

If you cannot return to work after 52 weeks of DB you will be put on long term db. Because you has more than 15years he will receive a medical pension. The amount will be based on years of service. You will receive retiree medical. The company will aid in applying for Social Security DB. When approved, 6 months or more, You will received backdated money from the time he applied. The company will then want about half of the money they gave to you back. A contract is signed to this effect before going out on long term DB.

After approved for SSDB Medicare will become the primary insurance with the company as secondary.

Tale of Two Countries Video

Canadian members of CWA talk about their country's health care system and how it compares with the costly system in the United States in a video that the Canadian Media Guild produced for last year's CWA convention in Toronto.

In the video and in other interviews, Canadians indicate they don't understand why Americans cling to a staggeringly expensive system that leaves so many people without health care.

For more information, and to find out how you can make a difference, visit www.healthcarevoices.org/canada. The Health Care Voices website features hundreds of stories, ideas and concerns of CWA members and their families as part of the union's fight for health care reform in the United States.
