* Update on rules around opting out of Health, Vision and Dental coverage effective September, 2009:
If an employee has other coverage in effect through another Group Benefit Plan then they can choose to opt out of coverage for Extended Health, Vision and Dental Care for both their dependents and themselves. In order to do this the employee must complete a new enrollment form and indicate the plan numbers that each individual is covered under.
If you have previously opted out of the benefit plans and there is a change to your spouse’s coverage so that you and/or your dependents will no longer have coverage under your spouse’s plan, you must complete a new enrollment form within 31 days of your other coverage ending in order to be put back onto the benefit plan. If you enroll after 31 days of no longer having other coverage, you will be required to complete an evidence of insurability form for Manulife. This could result in temporarily being without benefits or you could be denied coverage by Manulife.

MEPP CONTRIBUTION INCREASE
A survey sent to all school board employees a few years ago indicated to MEPP that the majority of its members wished to have their pension contributions increased. As a result, legislation was passed to increase pension contributions by 2% over 2 years. Prior to 2010 our contributions were 5.4% of our earnings. As of January 2010, our contributions increased by 1% making the contribution 6.4% of our earnings.
The last phase of this plan was put into effect January 1, 2011 and raised our contributions by another 1% to bring our pension contribution to 7.4% of our earnings. You will have noticed this on the first pay period of January.
