Premium holiday for long-term disability insurance

May 20, 2006 – At a meeting of participating unions on May 19, 2006, the following resolution was passed:

“that a full premium holiday for life insurance and long-term salary insurance be awarded, concentrated in the summer pay periods, for a period of three years, with an annual reassessment.”

Given the surpluses currently accumulated, the FNEEQ Insurance and Pension Committee (CFARR, for Comité Fédéral des Assurances et Régime de Retraite) has confirmed that this holiday, equal to about 15% of the amount of the premium, will be repeated this summer. So there will not be any deductions from your pay for life insurance and long-term salary insurance this summer.
