Disability Plan

(Mandatory Disability Insurance)

The Teachers' Long-Term Disability Plan (formerly the Income Continuance Plan) provides disability income for Saskatchewan teachers who are unable to work due to sickness or injury. Rehabilitative services are also available to support teachers with the recovery process and return to active employment. This Plan is funded by member premiums and is administered by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation.

If you expect to be unable to work after your accumulated sick leave runs out, you're encouraged to apply for disability benefits as soon as possible. To start the application process, phone one of our disability case consultants and request an application package. The forms in the application package must be completed and your claim approved before disability payments will begin. To ensure proper support and guidance is provided during this process, application forms are not available online.

Under most circumstances, coverage under other teacher group benefit plans will continue while you're receiving disability benefits. For more information, view Sick Leave and Disability.


Important Reminder

Disability benefits don’t begin automatically after your accumulated sick leave runs out. You must apply for benefits and your claim must be approved by the Claims Committee. The application process is quite detailed and may take considerable time to complete. If your claim is approved, you’ll begin to receive benefits when your sick leave expires.
