Update on OT Benefits Plan

The TDSB Benefits Office sent an update to the OTBU Executive on their progress in processing proof of benefits plan enrollments in order to provide the 50% reimbursement. They are delayed in providing the first two month's reimbursements. The reimbursements would catch up in November. The Benefits Office states:

"where we have received confirmation of September 1, 2017 enrollment, the payment in lieu reimbursement will be set up for the second pay in November. On the November 16th pay, OSSTF OT’s will see the November reimbursement (current month) as well as a retro reimbursement for September and October."From a series of meetings with Provincial OSSTF negotiators and the Ontario Public School Boards Association (OPSBA), an OT benefits plan has now been established to replace our existing plan with the TDSB which ends on August 31. Eligibility remains the same under the terms of our Local Collective Agreement: at least 90 days worked in the previous school year. The new plan will be run by the Ontario Teachers' Insurance Plan (OTIP). Eligible OTBU members may choose between this plan or another of their choosing, for which they will receive a 50% reimbursement of the cost, up to $2454 annually.

OTBU members eligible to enroll for benefits should have received a letter in the mail from the TDSB which will specify the process for enrolling in the new OTIP OT benefits plan and how to apply for reimbursement for another plan.
