Termination of Coverage

Your coverage terminates when your employment ends, you are no longer eligible, you are no longer a teacher as defined by The Education Act, 1995, or the Plan terminates, whichever is earlier. 

Teachers employed on temporary contracts cease to be eligible for benefits at midnight on the last teaching day of their contract. Teachers who retire cease to be eligible for benefits on the day of retirement.

Coverage for Plan members receiving disability benefits from the Income Continuance Plan and/or the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Disability Benefits Plan ends on the last day of the month in which the member turns age 65.

Extended Coverage

When your employment as a teacher terminates, coverage is extended under the Plan only under certain circumstances.

Continuous or Replacement Contract

If you are employed under a continuous or replacement contract that terminates June 30 (or the last teaching day of the school year), and you enter into a like contract of employment on the next paid teaching day, you are entitled to retroactive benefits.

Temporary Contract

If you are on a temporary contract, benefits will cease on the last teaching day of the contract. If you enter into another contract, benefits will commence on the first paid teaching day of the next contract.

Returning to Teach After Retirement

If you have retired and you return to teach under a continuous, replacement or temporary contract, you are eligible for benefits only for the duration of your contract, commencing on the first teaching day and terminating on the last teaching day. If there is a break in service of more than 120 days from your retirement date to the date you return to teach, you will be required to satisfy the qualification period (completion of 20 full or partial days of teaching service).
