About Open Enrollment
The purpose of this group insurance plan is to give you options to supplement your income and expenses in the event that you cannot work as a result of an injury or illness. The group plan offers Disability Insurance and Life Insurance with Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverages through Principal.
All insurance under this Union Group Policy will cover you for as long as you continue to remain actively employed and in good standing with the union.
Group Insurance Information
Please note that if you are suspended, dismissed, furloughed, or retire, you are no longer eligible for disability coverage and should contact our office immediately at 847-387-3555.
Disabilities that occur after being removed from service are not covered. If you do not contact our office within 30 days of your date of dismissal or date of retirement, there will be no refund for any premiums paid. It is the responsibility of the member to contact Cornerstone Benefits Management at 847-387-3555 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be able to resume your coverage if you return to work within 12 months. If dismissed or suspended, you may keep your life insurance coverage for up to 12 months as long as premiums are paid. Beyond 12 months, your coverage will terminate unless you convert or port the policy.
Note: This also applies to any member who has not had a formal hearing.
This is a group insurance plan; therefore, the costs and benefits are determined by the overall claims experience of the group. Your future rates and benefits may change regardless of whether or not you’ve ever filed a claim.
Know Your Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the member to notify Cornerstone Benefits Management if employment or union status changes. Failure to properly notify Cornerstone Benefits Management could result in loss of premiums and/or insurance coverage. Notification to Cornerstone Benefits Management must be by phone at 847-387-3555 and/or by email at email@example.com.
As an individual member of the union who is paying for coverage, you are responsible for understanding the group policy and its provisions. To view/download the group policy/booklet, please look under the Policy Documents tab.
