WACOPS Long Term Disability Insurance Program

 January 1, 2018 - Premium Change Notice

(Nov. 8, 2017) - Please note that on January 1, 2018, WACOPS will start the third year of a three-year Long Term Disability insurance policy with The Standard Insurance Company.   

Effective January 1, 2018, the monthly premium will be $65.38 for the Premier Plan and $91.07 for the Premier Plus Plan. These rates were agreed to at the start of the three-year policy and represent a marginal increase over the 2017 rates.

The Standard Insurance Company has proven to been a good partner with WACOPS on the Long Term Disability insurance program. We look forward to begin negotiations in 2018 to determine the coverage terms for the 2019 policy.

Please advise your Human Resources, Payroll and Guild Treasurer of the upcoming change in premium beginning in January to ensure a smooth transition.
