    Sunday I had an ATV accident and fractured my wrist. doc says i will be out for probably 6 weeks. this sucks because it is around the holidays and money is going to be tight. a coworker told me the union will pay out a ST disability benefit of about $250 a week. does anyone know if this is true?

    Here it is $600/week. I think I got $554 after FICA tax.

    Let me check-No, I'm not confused. I just got off disability in June. LTD through Metlife/UPS is $500 max right now but I think it will go up with the new contract. Perhaps it's different around the country based on cost of living-who knows.

    Just had knee surgery yesterday. I spoke with a std rep from disability. I asked how much disability would pay me. She replied with 63% of my base pay and 500.00 max

    ^^With such recent knee surgery, you probably shouldn't be digging up old threads like this. You already have a bad knee, you don't want to injure your back with all that shoveling.
