There are approximately 4500 employees of Toyota Indiana. At the O’Ryan Law Firm, we have represented numerous former Toyota employees who worked for many years at Toyota and then were forced to go out on disability when their medical conditions prevented them from working. The Toyota Motor Mfg. North America Long Term Disability Plan is an employee benefit plan administered in southern Indiana. The Long Term Disability Plan promises to provide Toyota Motor Manufacturing employees, as part of an employee compensation package, income replacement benefits in the event an employee becomes unable to work due to sickness or injury. All employees of Toyota are participants in the Long Term Disability Plan and therefore eligible to receive long term disability benefits if their doctor confirms that they are unable to work.
Cigna, or more specifically Life Insurance Company of North America (“LINA”) insures the long term disability coverage to participants of the Toyota long term disability Plan. LINA is an insurance company incorporated and headquartered in Pennsylvania and doing business in the State of Indiana. The Cigna (LINA) policy promises to pay disability benefits to employees of Toyota if they are unable to work due to sickness or injury.
