Recurring Term and Sessional Staff: Continuing Benefit Coverage

Human Resource Services (HRS) has updated Recurring Term and Sessional Staff benefit coverage processes to improve our service to Recurring Term and Sessional Staff during non-employment periods.

Recurring Term Staff

Recurring Term staff will receive a leave directive and pre-authorized debit form sent by mail to their home address. To continue Supplementary Health Care (SHC) and/or Dental coverage during their non-employment period the employee is asked to return the completed forms to Human Resource Services.

Human Resource Services will also provide the HR contact in the department with a list of employees who received leave directives and instructions for reporting the inactive period to Payroll Operations.

Sessional Staff

Sessional staff will receive an email that includes a Benefit Option Directive form and pre-authorized debit form. To continue Supplementary Health Care (SHC) and/or Dental coverage during their non-employment period the employee is asked to return the completed forms to Human Resource Services.

Please encourage Recurring Term or Sessional Staff to contact their Pension and Benefits Advisor if they have any questions about continuing benefit coverage.
