You become disabled

If you become disabled and cannot work:
  • Notify your manager as soon as possible. If your disability lasts more than 180 days, you may be eligible for benefits from the Long Term Disability Plan.
  • If your disability is the result of an on-the-job injury or illness, follow the One-Call procedure on the CenterPoint Energy intranet.
  • Apply for other disability benefits that may be payable, such as Social Security, Workers' Compensation, state or individual disability benefits and auto insurance recoveries.
  • Talk with a representative from the Benefits Service Center about the effect your disability leave of absence will have on your benefits:
    • Medical, Dental and Vision. You may continue coverage and have contributions deducted from your monthly LTD check.
    • Life Insurance You may continue employee and dependent coverage by contacting the Benefits Service Center and paying premiums directly to Prudential.
    • Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance Coverage ends on the last day of the month in which you take a disability leave.
    • Spending Accounts You may continue to participate if you are in a rehabilitation job. Participation for a calendar year lasts as long as you have a company salary. Participation ends when salary contributions end. You may continue to submit eligible expenses for reimbursement for the rest of the calendar year.
