Did you know that ASPA’s Extended Health and Dental Plans have a survivor benefit? If you did not, you are not alone….
Should an ASPA member who is eligible for the Extended Health and Dental Plans die while still employed at the University of Saskatchewan, their spouse and any eligible dependent(s), are eligible to continue to receive benefits for up to two years following the members passing. The University will continue to pay the premiums during this time. For further information regarding this and other benefit provisions please refer to the Extended Health and Dental Plan Summary located in your PAWS Account under the Benefit tab.
If you are not sure if you are eligible for the Extended Health and Dental Plans please refer to the ASPA Collective Agreement – Article 12 or contact the Member Services Officer, Glenn Billingsley, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
