You Go on Short-Term Disability Leave
Under the Short-Term Disability Plan, you may have the financial protection of full or partial pay for up to 25 weeks. While you are on a short-term disability leave you may continue many of your elected benefits provided you make the necessary contributions. Benefits that do not continue while you are on short-term disability leave include Business Travel Accident Insurance, the Dependent Care Spending Account, and the Transportation Spending Account.
  • For the Medical Plan, the Dental Plan, the Vision Plan, the Health & Wellness Centers Plan, the Group Legal Services Plan, and the Group Personal Excess Liability Insurance Plan: For the approved period of your disability leave, you'll remain eligible to be covered under the Medical Plan, the Dental Plan, the Vision Plan, the Health & Wellness Centers Plan, the Group Legal Services Plan, and the Group Personal Excess Liability Insurance Plan, and you will remain eligible to participate in the Health Care Spending Account. JPMorgan Chase will deduct any required contributions for medical coverage from the pay you receive during this period on a before-tax basis for the health care plans and the Health Care Spending Account and on an after-tax basis for the Group Legal Services Plan and the Group Personal Excess Liability Insurance Plan.
    • This medical and dental coverage continuation includes expatriate medical and dental coverage. If you are not receiving pay via Expat Payroll during your leave, JPMorgan Chase will bill you directly for any required contributions.
  • For the Dependent Care Spending Account, your participation is suspended during a period of paid or unpaid leave.
  • For the Transportation Spending Account, your participation is terminated during a period of paid or unpaid leave and any unused credits in your account(s) will be forfeited if you do not return to work and reenroll in the Transportation Spending Account. If you know you will be going on a leave, you should change your contribution amount to zero approximately one month before your leave begins in order to avoid forfeiting any contributions. Expenses incurred after your leave begins will not be eligible for reimbursement or payment from your account(s). If you wish to continue participation after you return to active service, you must re-enroll. However if you participated in the "Pay Me Back" option, you have 180 days following the end of any particular benefit month you participated in the program to file claims for reimbursement from your "Pay Me Back" account.
  • For the Basic Life Insurance Plan, Supplemental Term Life Insurance Plan, and the AD&D Insurance Plan: For the approved period of your disability leave, you'll remain eligible to be covered under the Basic Life Insurance Plan (including Identity Theft (ID) Assistance Program, Travel Assistance and Emergency Evacuation services, funeral concierge services, and SurvivorSupport® financial counseling services), Supplemental Term Life Insurance Plan, and the AD&D Insurance Plan.
    • In the case of the Basic Life Insurance Plan, your eligible compensation is updated as changes occur throughout the year.
  • For the Business Travel Accident Insurance Plan: While you are on disability leave, your business travel accident insurance will be suspended.
