Further Company Considerations
Please be sure to adjust your contributions in line with the updates, effective 2024.
Ensure you are offsetting any salary continuation/company top-up pay aligned with the new benefit rate maximum, where applicable. The Larkin Company will adjust offsets for any top-up (leave of absence pay) calculations, accordingly, if we handle these services for you.*
*Claims that start in 2023 will be awarded 2023 benefit rates. Claims that begin on or after January 1, 2024 will be eligible for the new maximum benefit rate.
