Public Service Disability Insurance Plan
The Disability Insurance (DI) Plan was designed in 1970 by Public Service management and bargaining agent representatives, in consultation with the National Joint Council, to provide income protection for Public Service employees. The Plan provides for a monthly income benefit for employees who are unable to work for a lengthy period of time because of a totally disabling illness or injury.
The Disability Insurance Plan has a Board of Management, upon which the PSAC has two representatives. While the Board operates under the auspices of the National Joint Council, the Plan itself is a contract between Treasury Board and the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada. There is an employer policy in place to reflect the terms of this contract.
The mandate of the Disability Insurance Plan Board of Management is restricted to hearing appeals and other specific operational issues. Disability Insurance Plan amendments and/or revisions are the domain of either NJC Executive Committee consultations or the collective bargaining process, depending on how particular bargaining agents choose to proceed.
Disability issues are coordinated through the PSAC Disability Insurance Program.
