Spotlight on Benefits

This month we will be sending out your customized Employee Benefits Statement.  It includes a customized listing of the benefits available to you, and lists your declared beneficiaries (the individual identified to receive pension and life insurance benefits) and dependents (for couple or family coverage).  Last year, HR received over 100 updates on address changes, phone numbers and beneficiary changes.  

Quick Tip: To update your beneficiary, please send originals through internal mail (only the original signed document will be accepted by the insurer).

Employee Assistance Program (EAP): More than Counselling Support

One of the benefits available to all employees is the EAP.  Books and resource kits, nutritional and fitness support, financial advice, elder care advice, online and telephone counselling – the EAP program offers more than just counselling.  

We all go through ups and downs in life.  Our EAP program is a premium offering – we’ve invested in the best program available. The offerings are completely confidential, and are available 24/7 https://www.workhealthlife.com/

Extended Health Benefits

Do you keep losing receipts for prescription medications or other items that can be claimed on your extended medical?  Try clipping a clear zip lock bag to the side of your fridge and drop the receipts in as soon as you get home.  Your coverage is only valuable if you process a claim! http://hr.abbyschools.ca/benefits
