Important Changes to the BLET Short-Term Disability Program

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, January 1 — Effective January 1, 2019, Sun Life Financial will be replacing MetLife as the insurance carrier for The BLET’ Short-Term Disability Program (“STD Program”). Sun Life Financial (located at One Sun Life Executive Park, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481) is one of America’s leaders in group insurance plans and holds an A+ (“Superior”) ranking from A.M. Best.

STD Program participants can contact Cornerstone Benefits Management, Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM Central Standard Time to answer questions related to the STD Program changes and to provide confidential assistance in resolving any benefit issues. We encourage you to learn more by contacting them at: Phone: 224-848-4941 or Email: info@uniondisability.com.

IMPORTANT: All qualified disabilities that began prior to January 1, 2019 will continue to be covered under the current Short-Term Disability plan underwritten by MetLife. Also, all participants currently on disability with MetLife will remain so for the duration of their disability or until their benefits have been exhausted, whichever occurs first.

Note: The participating railroads are: Belt Railway of Chicago; Conrail Shared Assets; CSX Transportation, including Bombardier Transportation Services (who took over CSXT-operated MARC commuter service); CP–D&H; CP–Soo Line; KCS; Longview Switching; Metra; Portland Terminal; Terminal Railway – Alabama State Docks; and Union Pacific.
