1.   Does Ruan provide disability benefits?

Yes. Team members eligible for the Ruan benefits program receive both free short-term and long-term disability benefits for non-work-related illnesses or injuries. The amount of your benefit depends on your job classification. Please refer to your Employee Benefits Guide for details.   


2.   Can I increase the company's disability benefit?

Eligible drivers, mechanics and warehouse workers may elect Supplemental Short-Term Disability (STD) coverage that would raise the benefit maximum to 60 percent of wages.  All eligible full-time workers may elect Supplemental Long-Term disability (LTD) for a maximum 60 percent of wages.  Note that new hires may elect Supplemental LTD without medical underwriting or evidence of insurability during their initial enrollment period.  However any future LTD elections will be subject to medical underwriting and must be approved by the insurance carrier before coverage can begin.


3.   How long will my disability benefits last?

After a seven-day waiting period, short-term disability benefits begin on the eighth day and may continue for up to 26 weeks from the date of disability. If you are still disabled after 26 weeks, you may be eligible for the long-term disability plan. Long-term benefits vary in length based on the type and severity of the disability.


4.   Does the company provide life insurance?

Yes. Team members eligible for the program receive free life insurance equal to one times your annual wages (maximum $50,000). This core benefit also provides additional coverage for accidental death and dismemberment, a seat belt benefit and accelerated death benefits.


5.   Does the company provide spouse insurance?

Yes. Team members eligible for the Ruan benefits program receive $1,000 in free spouse life insurance.


6.   Can I add to the company provided life/spouse life insurance?

Yes. Employees may purchase additional coverage on themselves. Plus, if you have supplemental coverage on yourself, you are eligible to purchase coverage on your spouse and children. Note that in some cases your election may be subject to underwriting approval (or Evidence of Insurability) before coverage is active.  Please refer to your Employee Benefits Guide for details.
