Your gross base annual salary is defined as your Pre-Disability Earnings. The gross base annual salary you make on September 1 of each calendar year determines the benefit you are eligible for beginning October 1 of each calendar year.
• For new hires, annual salary will be based on your date-of-hire salary, and coverage will be effective after you complete one full calendar month of employment.
• Every year there will be a benefit and premium level adjustment on September 1. If your salary has changed from the prior year, your benefit and premium will change accordingly. This adjustment will become effective on October 1.
