The CONSTRUCTION STD/LTD has two types of benefits - Short-Term and Long-Term Disability. Short-Term Disability pays a weekly benefit and Long-Term Disability pays a monthly Benefit. Both pay a benefit equal to 60% of your weekly or monthly earnings when you are actively reporting 125 hours in a given month. Both will also pay a 60% benefit if you are working but need to utilize the hour bank to meet the 125 hour eligibility. If you are not reporting any hours worked but have at least 125 hours accrued in the hour bank, your benefit is 50%.
