Eligibility

Term Life Insurance

You are eligible to apply for Portaplan term life insurance if you are under 65 years of age, a resident of Canada and you meet one of the following requirements:

  • You hold a valid Saskatchewan teacher’s certificate.
  • You are enrolled full time in the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan or the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina.
  • You are employed as a secretary or treasurer for a Saskatchewan school division or are a member of the League of Educational Administrators, Directors and Superintendents.
  • You are employed by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation or the TCU Financial Group.

Spouse and Eligible Children Aged 16 through 25

If you meet one of the above eligibility requirements, your spouse and/or 16- through 25-year-old child can apply for their own policy. You do not need to be a Portaplan policyholder.

Your spouse must be under 65 years of age and a resident of Canada at the time of application.

For purposes of this insurance, Spouse means:

  • A person who is your legal spouse, or
  • A person who has lived with you for at least 12 consecutive months in a role like that of a marriage partner.

In circumstances where more than one individual meets the definition of spouse above, the person who qualifies last under the definition will be the eligible spouse.

To be eligible to apply for coverage, your birth, adopted, step or foster child must be at least 16 years of age but under age 26, and a resident of Canada at the time of application. If your child is approved for coverage, and subsequently has a spouse, the spouse is also eligible to apply for their own policy, as are any of their eligible children.

Dependant Life and Accident Insurance

You must have at least one unit of Portaplan term life insurance to be eligible to apply for dependant life insurance or accident insurance.
