If You Get Sick, Injured or Need to Care for a Loved One

When you’re feeling crummy, take the time you need to care for yourself or your family.

Disability

Available for Full-Time Krispy Kremers

Disability insurance allows you to receive a portion of your paycheck while you’re out on short- or long-term disability. You’re eligible for disability coverage after six months following your date of hire.

  • If you’re a salaried Krispy Kremer, Krispy Kreme provides you with both short-term and long-term disability at no cost to you. Short-term disability pays 100% of your base pay for the first 13 weeks and 60% of your base pay for the next 13 weeks. Long-term disability (LTD) coverage pays benefits if your disability continues beyond the 26-week period.
  • If you’re an hourly Krispy Kremer, you can elect short-term disability (STD) coverage and long-term disability (LTD) coverage. If you’re out on disability, STD pays 60% of your base pay for up to six months of disability (up to $500 per week). If your disability continues beyond six months, the LTD plan begins to pay benefits. You may be eligible to receive 60% of your base pay (up to $1,516.67 per month).

Filing a Claim

To apply for disability, report your expected leave to your manager, and then file a claim by going to Prudential’s website or calling 877-367-7781. You’ll need the control number 70236 to submit your claim.

Keep Your Benefits Active While You’re Out

Once your leave claim is approved by Prudential, you’ll receive information in the mail from Flores regarding the various ways you can make payments on your benefit premiums to keep your Krispy Kreme benefits active.

FMLA

Available for Full-Time Krispy Kremers

The Family Medical Leave Act was designed to be used if you’re unable to work because you:

  • Have a serious health condition
  • Need to care for a family member (parent, spouse, child) with a serious health condition
  • Are bonding with a newborn, adopted child or a child in foster care
  • Are a military caregiver

You need to have worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months prior to the start of FMLA.

To apply for FMLA, report your anticipated leave to your manager, and then file a claim by going to the Prudential’s website or calling 877-367-7781.

Parental Leave

Full-time salaried and Corporate Office Krispy Kremers who have added a bundle of joy to their family (birth, adoption or foster placement) and have completed 12 consecutive months of service are eligible to receive one week of paid parental leave.

To apply for parental leave, report your anticipated leave to your manager, and then file a claim by going to the Prudential’s website or calling 877-367-7781.

When do I have to report a claim?
For your own serious illness, disability or maternity leave where you anticipate you will be absent for seven or more days, you can report a leave up to 30 days in advance of a planned absence.
