Post-Retirement Benefits

Post-retirement benefits may include Extended Health, Dental, and Out of Province travel insurance. Benefit entitlements change upon Retirement, so it is important to review your entitlements in your Retiree benefit booklet.

Eligibility for post-retirement benefits varies by employee group and may include a co-pay arrangement. Your HR Advisor will be able to assist you with what this means for you and to confirm your eligibility.
