Part Time B Disability
Click here to learn about Part Time B disability benefits. If you are a Part Time B associate interested in purchasing disability coverage you can calculate your disability payroll deduction amount using the following calculation:

  • Hourly rate x scheduled hours per pay period x 26 pay periods = Annual Salary
  • Annual salary / 26 pay periods = bi weekly pay
  • Bi weekly pay / 1000 x 8.81
  • $10.00 x 40 x 26 = $10,400
  • $10,400 /26 = $400 bi-weekly pay
  • $400 / $1000 x 8.81 = $3.54/pay period for disability benefit coverage
