Enrolling in the RSB Plan

Login to Workday

For Workday resources and help visit the Integrated Service Centre.

If you are retiring:

You will receive a Benefits task in your Workday inbox to select your RSB enrolments once your retirement has been processed in the system. You will have 31 days from your retirement date to complete this task.

If you are leaving UBC and over age 55:

You will receive a Workday inbox item to contact the Retiree Partner if you would like to enroll in the RSB Program. If you are eligible, you will have 31 days to enroll from the date you receive the task in your Workday inbox.

After you enrol

Once you have completed your enrolment, you can access your Benefits Statement by going to your Workday account. Your enrolment selections will be sent to the Retiree Partner for review and approval.

When do my benefits begin?

The first day of your retirement benefits is determined by your last working day at UBC. Your retirement benefits must begin immediately after your active benefits expire.

When you leave UBC, your active Extended Health and Dental benefits will end on the last day of the same month, and your retirement benefits will begin the next day. Your Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) coverage will end 3 months after the first of the month following your employment end date or retirement date. For example, if your last day is on November 17, your Extended Health and Dental coverage will end on November 30 and your EFAP coverage will end on February 28. The first day of your Extended Health and Dental retirement benefits will be December 1. The first day of your EFAP retirement benefits will be March 1.

If you are working past your normal retirement date and you are receiving pension benefits, your active benefits will end at the end of the month prior to the date you access your Pension and your retirement benefits will begin the following day. For example, if you access your Pension on July 1st, your active coverage will end June 30th and the first day of your retirement benefits will be July 1st.
