We are in final preparations for Workday and the Integrated Service Centre going live on November 2.

Enrolling in the RSB Plan

You should enrol in the Retirement & Survivor Benefits (RSB) Program at least four weeks before you want your coverage to begin.

Follow the steps below to enroll in the RSB Program:

  • Complete the RSB Program Application Form. You can choose to be covered for any or all of the three benefit plans: Extended Health, Dental, and Employee and Family Assistance Plan. If you choose to enrol in Extended Health, you must ensure that you are also covered under a provincial health plan (such as MSP) as well.
  • Attach a void cheque to the application form. If you will continue to work at UBC, the void cheque must match the bank account that Payroll has on file.
  • Mail or drop off the completed and signed application form to:

RSB Administrator
600 – 6190 Agronomy Road
Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z3

After you enrol

You will generally receive confirmation of your enrolment in the RSB Program two weeks after you have submitted your Application Form. This confirmation will also identify the date that your retirement benefits begin.

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.

If you leave UBC on or before the 15th of the month, your active benefits will end on the last day of the same month, and your retirement benefits will begin the next day. For example, if your last day is on or before March 15, your Extended Health, Dental, Employee and Family Assistance and MSP coverage will end on March 31. The first day of your retirement benefits will be April 1.

If you leave after the 15th, your active benefits will end on the last day of the following month, and your retirement benefits will begin the following day. For example, if your last day is March 23, your basic active coverage will end on the last day of April. The first day of your retirement benefits will be May 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.
