Question about injury off work and pension...

  1. A co-worker told me that I would be covered 6 months of pension even tho I was injured outside of work. I was on disability for about 8 months.

    Is that correct? Sounds kind of far fetched.

    We do have some guys that work 6 months and take 6 months off every year.

    This would be in your contract. Here if you don't work. You don't get a pension contribution.

    Was out all of last year except 2 weeks on workmans comp. No credit given on pension. You don’t credit.
  4. Yeah that's what I figured. But this high seniority full timer misses tons of work and strongly believes he gets at least 6 months of pension when missing time.

    Call the pension fund. I was off 4 months on comp and got 444 hours credit!
  6. Here they pay into the pension for 6 months if you are in comp, I'm not sure about if you are in disability if they pay into it or not.

    Union will cover your pension and healthcare contributions for 1 year of off the job disability here. Also pay you 225/week for the first 6 months, 275/week for the second 6 months. Not much but better than nothing.

    Here you must have 1801 hours worked per year to get full year pension credit, not sure how they pro-rate it for less time.
