How will my benefits be affected during my FMLA leave?

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.
