Disability Hour Credit – What it is and How You Can Receive It

Disability Hour Credit will help to extend your eligibility during periods in which you are unable to work due to disability.

If you become disabled while working as a cement mason for an Individual Employer and your Hour Bank contains at least 330 hours in the month in which you become disabled, you may be entitled to Disability Hour Credit.

You may receive Disability Hour Credit at the rate of 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week not to exceed 110 hours per month. You may receive a maximum of 660 hours during any 12-consecutive month period.

In order to receive Disability Hour Credit, you and your doctor must complete a Disability Certification form. 

To be considered for Disability Hour Credit under the Health & Welfare Plan, your completed Disability Certification form must be received by the Trust Fund Office within 12 months from the date of your disability.  Forms filed after 12 months will not be accepted.
