All health and welfare benefits continue during FMLA leave under the same conditions as if you continued to work. If you normally have a payroll deduction for voluntary benefits (voluntary life, personal accident insurance, etc.), these payments will be deducted from your paychecks while on leave. If your paycheck does not cover these self-pay premiums, Finance will send you a bill. If self-pay premium payments are not made in a timely fashion, those benefits may be canceled. If you decide to discontinue these benefit enhancements, you must notify the HR department in writing.
