What happens to my benefits if I miss work and do not get a paycheck?

You are still responsible for paying for your benefits, even if you do not receive a paycheck.  If you know you will be off work for an extended period of time due to a medical or personal reason you must contact human resources to make arrangements for your benefits to be paid while you are off work.  If benefits are not paid for during an absence, any missed benefit deductions will be caught up as soon as possible upon your return to work.
