When will my benefits end?

All changes for benefits coverage must be completed in Workday by the 20th of the month to be effective on the first of the following month. For example, if you want a change to be effective April 1, you must complete your change in Workday by March 20 otherwise your change will not start until May 1.

If you leave the RSB Program, you cannot re-enrol at a later date.

In the event of your death

If an RSB member dies, the surviving spouse and children who are already listed as dependents are eligible to continue their coverage if they were enrolled in the Program within 31 days of the member’s death.

The coverage will continue until:

  • the dependent child no longer meets the definition of a dependent on the plan,
  • the surviving spouse re-marries or enters into a new common-law relationship, or
  • the end of the period for which premiums have been paid for the coverage.

Survivors are requested to contact the Retirement Benefits Administrator at 604-822-4580 to make the necessary changes.
