Question:

How much disability pay does the IDL benefit cover?

 

Answer:

The IDL benefit will be equivalent to the full amount of the injured employee's salary for the first 22 days of the work related injury or illness (a three day waiting period may apply). Thereafter, IDL benefits will be equivalent to two-thirds of the employee's salary, payable for the next eleven months of disability.

An eligible employee may receive IDL payments for a period not to exceed 52 weeks within two (2) years from the first day of disability. The 52-week eligibility period is equivalent to 365 calendar days.
