Am I entitled to short-term or long-term disability benefits through American Airlines?

The American Airlines Flight Attendant Agreement provides that the company agrees to offer at your expense an optional short-term disability, long-term disability, or voluntary personal accident insurance plan. If you have not purchased this coverage, these benefits are not available.  Furthermore, the plan has a "coordination of benefits" clause that offsets workers' compensation benefits.  Accordingly, if you qualify for short-term or long-term disability benefits during a period that you are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits, the short-term and long-term disability benefits will be reduced by amount equal to your workers compensation wage loss benefits.
