Brothers and Sisters,


   In March of 2018, Deere & Co. hired a third party organization to administer the processing of L.T.D. claims. Now, members who have exhausted their 52 weeks of W.I. are being denied LTD benefits they are rightfully entitled to, leaving two of our members in extreme financial distress. We are currently fighting these negligent decisions in the appeals process but in the meantime these members are not getting a weekly check and cannot return to active employment.
