SUB BENEFITS

The Benefits Office handles SUB issues ONLY!!  For Unemployment issues, contact the state unemployment office in the state that you applied for Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits or the plant Labor Relations Office (913) 573-3035. 

The Auto SUB Program is an automated procedure in which the GM Benefits and Services Center receives State UC benefit information electronically from the State.  The UC information is used to calculate the payment of a regular SUBenefit for each full week of layoff.  When the AutoSUB procedures apply, your application for a state UC Benefit will constitute submitting an application (and supporting information) for regular SUBenefits and generally you will not need to use the VRU or Web site to apply. 

Layoff benefit checks are processed weekly, generally on Thursday nights.  Gross benefit amounts are transmitted to payroll weekly, generally on Fridays.  Payroll generates SUB payments the following week. 

The purpose of the SUB plan is to supplement state UC benefits while you are on layoff.  If you have at least one year of seniority as of your last day worked, your SUBenefit is equal to 74% of your base hourly rate as of your last day worked.  Your SUBenefit is also offset by state Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits and other compensation received for the specified week.

EXAMPLE: 

Pay rate on last day worked
$28.71
X 40 hrs in a week 
$1,148.40
X 74% of gross wages
74%
849.82
Less max UC  
(469.00)
Gross SUB paid
$380.82

 

The above is an example only and should not be construed as a commitment to pay benefits.  Actual benefits will be calculated based upon each employee’s monetary amount.

If you have not received your SUB Check, contact the hourly payroll number at 1-866-246-5957.
