Coverage from The Standard 'a huge help' during time off work Many CTA members rely on sick leave to protect them against unexpected time off work. But sometimes a sickness or an injury comes with additional expenses such as health insurance copayments and deductibles. That’s why the CTA-endorsed Disability Insurance plan provides a $25/day benefit for each regular day of required attendance when disabled members are receiving their full sick pay.Mike Patterson, a member of the South Tahoe Education Association, found out how useful that additional benefit can be after he fell and fractured his ankle while on his dream vacation to New Zealand.
“After returning home from New Zealand I needed surgery on my ankle,” Mike said. “I filed a disability claim with The Standard. Their staff responded quickly and was helpful and friendly. I had a lot of sick leave built up, but the $25 per work day benefit on top of my sick leave was honestly a huge help during my eight weeks off of work. I’m very glad I have this important coverage and tell many of my peers that they should have it as well.”
