Disability Retirement Benefit

   

If you have become totally and permanently disabled as defined by the Plan, you may be eligible for a disability benefit. In the case of a disability incurred in the line of duty (Service Incurred), you will be eligible for a benefit regardless of your length of service. In the case of a disability that is not incurred in the line of duty (Non-Service Incurred), you will be eligible for a benefit only if you have at least 10 years of Credited Service at the time of disability.

Service Incurred
Eligibility: You must be totally and permanently disabled and unable to earn at least 75% of the earnings paid to you immediately prior to your disability. There is no service requirement, but you must be an active employee under the Plan at the time of your disability.

Benefit: The amount of your benefit due to a service incurred disability is 60% of your earnings in effect on the date of disability. This benefit is payable until the earlier of your death or recovery.

Non-Service Incurred
Eligibility: You must be totally and permanently disabled such that you cannot have regular and continuous duty as an employee. You must have at least 10 years of Credited Service and must be an active employee under the Plan at the time of your disability.

Benefit: The amount of your benefit due to a non-service incurred disability if hired prior to June 8, 2011 will be an amount equal to 2.75% of your Average Monthly Salary times your years of Credited Service, or 2.00% of your Average Monthly Salary times your years of Credited Service if hired on or after June 8, 2011, subject to a minimum of 25% of your earnings. This benefit is payable until the earlier of your death or recovery.

Note: To receive either type of disability benefit, you will have to qualify for such benefit based on standards determined by the Board of Trustees on a uniform, non-discriminatory basis.
