Coverage through the MSEA Income Protection Plan is affordable. It costs 40 cents a week per $100 of coverage. Example: $1,000 of monthly coverage costs $4 per week; $2,000 of monthly coverage costs $8 per week; and so on. Choose the level of Income Protection that works for you. Premiums are payable through automatic payroll deduction. Income Protection benefits are non-taxable, according to the IRS.

With this Open Enrollment Period, the MSEA Income Protection has added new salary tiers for those earning over $60,000. Higher-wage earners can now collect up to $3,000 of monthly income effective June 1, 2024.
