Definition of Total Disability. Total disability means that the employee is unable, because of sickness or accident, to perform the duties of their regular occupation. This definition applies for the first twenty-four (24) months of payments. After this time, the inability to perform an occupation for which the employee is reasonably fitted by training, education or experience will constitute total disability. It is not required that an employee be confined to home, but they must be under the regular care of a physician.
Definition of Total Disability. For purposes of this Agreement, the terms “totally disabled” and “total disability” shall mean disability as defined in any total disability insurance policy or policies, if any, in effect with respect to the Executive. If no insurance policy is in effect, “total disability” shall mean a medically determinable physical or mental condition, which, in the opinion of two physicians chosen by the mutual consent of the parties, renders the Executive unable to perform substantially all of the duties required pursuant to this Agreement. Total disability shall be deemed to have occurred on the date of the disabling injury or onset of the disabling illness, as determined by the two independent physicians. In the event that the two independent physicians are unable to agree as to the date of the disabling injury or onset of the disabling illness, such date shall be deemed to be the later of the two dates determined by the physicians chosen pursuant to this Section 5.1(a).

As used in this Agreement, the term "Total Disability" refers to a condition resulting from injury or illness to the Employee Shareholder which prevents the Employee Shareholder from performing the duties he or she has previously performed, and could be reasonably expected to perform on behalf of the Company, for a period of 365 consecutive days (the "Disability Period"), and Total Disability shall be deemed to occur on the first day following the initial 365 day period (the "Total Disability Date"). In the event that the disabled Employee Shareholder returns to the Company within the Disability Period, but can fully perform the required services for less than thirty (30) days, and then relapses to his or her disability, the Disability Period shall not be considered to have been interrupted. In the event the Company has disability insurance protection on the Employee Shareholder, or the Employee Shareholder has an individual policy, the receipt of such disability insurance payments shall be deemed proof that the Employee Shareholder is disabled, and the waiting period and periods during which such Employee receives disability payments from such insurance, shall be deemed proof of the extent of time the Employee Shareholder has been disabled. Any dispute as to whether or not an Employee Shareholder is "Totally Disabled" and for how long he or she has been disabled as defined in this Agreement, shall be settled by mediation and/or arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.
