My employer has both short and long term disability for full-time employees. I was full-time at the time of my injury and was out under worker comp until recently for about 9 months. I called HR at the time I was injured and inquired about the disability benefit and was told they would send me the paperwork but that you could not qualify for disability if you were receiving w/c benefits. My question is this: I have read that you had to be on short term before you could apply for long term. I believe that at some point wc is going to assume liability for all of my injuries. How does all this work? Is everything separate or are benefits co-ordinated? Oh,and w/my work restrictions I was only able to work part-time at this point. Since I was full time at the time of my disabling injury, my current part-time status wouldn't interfere,right? Thanks..
